Permission to Write: Finding Time

Recently a writing buddy e-mailed me after checking out my site and twitterblogs.  “I just don’t have the time to figure it all out — blogs and sites and Facebook.” 

None of us do. 

I’ve drawn the line.  I maintain a site.  I write two blogs.  I don’t maintain them on my site, because I didn’t want to take the time to figure it out when someone else has templates, tech support and more. 

I didn’t learn HTML.  I used a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get program.  No, I can’t get the light green background I originally envisioned but so far that hasn’t been a huge disappointment.

I don’t use Facebook.

Twitter, in my world, is something that birds do.

There’s nothing wrong with either.  I’d just rather use my time to write. 

You simply don’t have the time to do everything.  The choice is yours to make.
