This weekend I sat down to catch up on a few Tweets from my #eci831 classmates as well read a few of their blog posts. Next thing I knew, two hours had passed and I had a fantastic recipe for supper.
It is what I call “If you give a mouse a cookie” syndrome. You see, I have come to realize that I am very much the mouse in Laura Numeroff’s book “If you give a mouse a cookie”.
Often, I sit down with a purpose and plan in mind. I will start by reading an article or a blog. When it is a good article or post, I start wondering what else I can find out about the subject at hand. Then, because I think that the information is so interesting or applicable, I email or tweet it to my co-workers, classmates or friends so that they too can enjoy this information. If there are any links to click on that will lead me to a video, you can be sure I have jumped on that train too.
Oh how the internet can lead me to many places. By the time I am through with my online workout, I have joined new communities, signed up to follow new Twitters or Bloggers and shared my thoughts for the day. Once I start sharing my thoughts, I start wondering who has tweeted or posted something new that I better read about…and the cycle starts again!
Am I the only who gets lost in the cycle of the never ending access to information? If you are like Laura Numeroff’s little mouse, I would love to hear your story!
