I got three invitations for the new Google+ but I declined them all.  I don't need to join another black hole that will suck the life out of me.  Too much time is already wasted on social networks that would be better spent on going out and getting some fresh air.  Google is also taking over the world invading our lives and this is just something new in Google's evil plan to know every single thought & move we all make.

Many years ago I practically lived on Myspace, yes it still exists, and it devastated me when the root of all evil known as Facebook lured away all my friends.  Twitter seems to be more my style and I much prefer it to talk to friends.  

The stupidity that exists on Twitter is utterly fascinating making me realize that I'm not the crazy one that my family thinks I am.  I watch in amazement as people say things to one another that they would never say to anyone else face to face.  Lives have been destroyed and families have been torn apart because of saying too much on social networks.  You can't even get a job anymore without your employer pulling your entire online history into question.  

My private Twitter account already takes up enough of my time and I don't need something new to take me away from my already chaotic life.  I've now joined Daily Kos which will now take away even more of my time.  I've been told we can write what we want about any topic we want.  I feel at home here already and my constant need to voice my opinion whether people like it or not seems to fit in here pretty well.  I'm a semi-reformed keyboard warrior trying to change my life and Daily Kos seems to be the perfect fit for me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
