Myspace.com, A Very Addictive WebsiteSeveral months ago, some friends of mine talked me into joining myspace.com. Before I knew what was happening, I had become addicted to it.
I find that everyday I can't wait to log into the website and see if I have people wanting to be my friend, what comments I have, any messages, and how I can make my page more appealing to the eye.
I love cruising through the different music categories; changing the songs on my page and changing my top friends to suit my moods. I also love to switch the background to match the mood I'm in at the moment.
True most of my friends are musicians and horror movie producers, but I am having fun meeting people off of there. And a lot of my friends are friends that I have known most of my life. I love those people and like the new friends I am making.
It's a great way to network and they are all reading my writings, both on my blogs there on myspace and here in my columns. I feel like I have made a small impact and I love it.
I just couldn't believe my friends that got me involved when they told me how addictive myspace would be when they warned me before I began. But as time goes by, it becomes more and more addictive.
Even as I write this column, I am taking mini-breaks to check myspace to see if I have gotten any comments, any new friends, etc.
It's fun to see the pictures that everyone else puts on their pages and how they decorate and what music they think fits them. Even the names they give themselves are great.
What is more fun is that most of my favorite television shows have pages on there too.
I think sometimes, that my page is over-whelming to the senses. I have slide shows (five) that feature pictures that are my favorite pictures of my family. I have my favorite music videos and some fun stuff on there too like a PONG game and a Magic 8 Ball.
But I can't think of something on-line that is as much fun as this site. It beats chatting, it beats the messengers, it beats the funny pages or playing mah johnng. It gives a sense of creativity, it gives one a sense of fun. And before you know it, you are addicted. It's worse than any drug out there.
