I'm totally insane. I have a MySpace account that I only use to check in with my bro, a blogger that I write to about twice a year, a hotmail account, a gmail account, a yahoo account, my work email, a LinkedIn account, this LJ account I just check in to read about other people's lives, and I just signed up for facebook... Um, hello??? 

Seriously, who really needs all of this connection? And am I really getting connected? Or am I turning into a stalker? Maybe that's it. Maybe the internet has given me the easy way to keep in touch with people :)

The good thing is that folks I have missed being in touch with are somewhere out there -- like my family -- who knew that my aunt/uncle/cousins/bros had accounts too???

I must be crazy :)

Am I, or do you guys also have a ton of online connections???

I have about the same spread, minus the myspace (which i should have to check in with my bro - seriously, there's an invitation hanging out in my email) and the facebook. But I've got two yahoos and two gmails. :)

LOL! Good to know that I'm not alone! I was feeling a bit like I had pushed my online connectedness a bit past the norm levels ;)

over connected
see how i only check my LJ once every six months? I too have a hotmail, yahoo, gmail, myspace, facebook and last but not least the "home" roadrunner account. I rarely check any of them, except the gmail, which is technically the business account. I hang onto all these things despite their apparent uselessness, because i miss my friends. i'm too busy to actually talk with, email or hang out with my friends, but having all these internet connections to them is like carrying around a blankie. i can check to make sure you're all still out there, having just as much of a crazy busy life as me. miss you!

Re: over connected
A while back, I added a "button" to my FB account, it says something along the lines of "I love my computer, all of my friends live in it" and that is often how I truly feel! Over connected or not, it's good to know that every now and again I'll get some catch up time with some of the folks I miss most having close!
