I CAN Live Without Seeing EVERYTHING Posted in my Circles on G+

As I have been trying to move things around in my office / craft room I have been rather busier than normal and realised I didn’t do a blog yesterday or the day before so thought I needed to catch up with everyone today.  I find there is so much good content from the people in my circles on Google+ that it takes me ages to look through the stream which takes up my time when I haven’t been on there for a few hours, especially in the mornings because I obviously go to bed before a lot of my friends in my circles who live in the US.  So when I get online at lunchtime I have an awful lot to catch up on and, as I have said before, I think I must have a FOMO complex (Fear Of Missing Out) because I don’t want to miss out on some of the really interesting posts.


I can NEVER catch up on all the tweets in Twitter which I do find frustrating but as most of the non-direct tweets are promotions I don’t mind too much, but the posts on Google+ are much more interesting.  Facebook posts seem to be much easier to keep up with, possibly due to the shorter posts on there but also people don’t seem to put the same interesting things to read on there that they do on Google+.


I had a great day yesterday as, apart from still trying to sort the room out, I had 2 friends come round – one in the afternoon and one in the evening – neither of whom I have seen for quite a while.  It’s funny but I just knew they would end up coming round on the same day and yet one was an unplanned visitJ  They are both very dear friends and it was lovely to see them and it made a lovely change to my normal routine to be socialising for most of the day.


BUT I realised today that I am not really pining that I didn’t see all the new posts in my circles yesterday – I actually discovered that life can go on without me seeing everything on Google+ if there are other things to do.  I did find it was actually possible to just check out my “favourite” or “more important” circles without having to see absolutely everything that everyone had posted.  Normally I “make time” to see all the posts, or as many as I can as skimming down the stream sometimes manages to miss posts, and sometimes I am just so late to bed trying to catch up on them all as the stream is so very busy at that time of night as it is evening in the US.


So it ended up being a day off work and only a short time to look at the posts online.   And I survived without my “see everything” G+ fix.  If I can manage it, the consequence of this is that I shall try to limit my periods on the computer to “sessions”.  I will try to discipline myself to not looking at my stream until I have posted my jewellery item of the day and my blog.  Then I shall try to keep to certain blocks of timed sessions so that I can still fit other things into my day and not allow myself a lingering session on there until late evening.  I am not sure I will be able to keep to it, and keeping offline while I am doing other things will be ok, but dragging myself away when I do go on there will be another story!!!  Watch this space…
