Facebook and MySpace

I’m a marketing person, I know the value of the social sites.  They connect people and, occasionally, ideas.  Still, it’s a personal choice of mine to spend as little time there, as possible.  Not saying they’re bad or good, this isn’t a value judgment.  I’m just very easily bored.  (Good thing there was no ADHD diagnosis when I was growing up, or I’d have been on every activity-moderating drug known to medicine.)

It bores me to know what everybody’s doing.  It requires reading really bad writing, to find out things I don’t really want to know.  And since I love to read good writing and my life is interesting enough, spending time in front of a screen has to have a pay-off.

If this elainejesmer.com turns into a universe for patients to get information about, or related to chemo, that they need – if everyone who blogs here with me starts adding their experiences and widening the range of information, that’s the payoff, the satisfaction I’ll get for helping people get through a difficult time in their lives.

I’m linking the blog with my Facebook and MySpace accounts in hopes that something will come of it that ISN’T boring.  Something that advances patients’ ability the access to information, for example.  You guys out there bringing your experiences to the table – that’s interesting.  This isn’t about me, it’s about us.

Meanwhile, if you want to find me, I’m here, not there…
