I love that the world has become this vast information highway. We are in a position to give everyone what they need, right now. I am guilty of wanting information right now and at my fingertips. There are lots of great reasons to be online, but there are also a lot of people who don't feel that being online is very important. As a matter of fact, I have family members that feel annoyed when I visit them and then turn around and check my email.

 

When I am online I check my email, update my blogs and read bookmarked items to catch up on what's going on in my world. I like to see what movies are out, pay bills and do research. I do spend a lot of time online but I also spend time with family.

 

For me, being online is taking care of business. What family doesn't realize is that because I can go online instead of some office I can do it from anywhere. That just gives me more time to spend with them. Do any of you have this problem? If so, how do you deal with it?
