Changing habits

Once upon a time, not so long ago[1], I was new to all this Web 2.0 and social networking stuff. I got an account on Flickr, and started commenting on people’s photos. Then I started friending people, and built up a large network. I’d visit Flickr at least once a day, and often several times.

I started blogging, and the same thing happened. I was addicted to my hit count.

Somewhere in the past few months, my habits have changed. I barely go to Flickr any more. It isn’t that I don’t have a lot of friends there, I just don’t have the time right now. I try to keep up with blogs, but mostly through my feedreader on the train in the morning / evening, so I probably don’t comment as often as I used to.

I’ve got accounts on Upcoming, Plazes, MySpace and elsewhere, but frankly these are all just tools. My interest hasn’t waned, but my time has 😦
