My friends over at the Paper Hangover pose the question what are the top 5 biggest disractors on the internet.
Oh ONLY FIVE?!
1) Gmail--- did someone leave a comment on my blog? What about over on my article at the Patch? Is amazon offering some amazing deal? Did an agent want to offer me a deal? MUST. CHECK. EMAIL.
2) Twitter- It updates ever few seconds... someone else has something to say. What if it's insightful or entertaining. What if it's the one peice of information that will change my life forever. Did someone retweet what I said? Did someone @ me?
3) youtube- vlogs, vlogs, music videos, Charlie is so cool like, Vlog brothers, Ijustine and the muppet's movie trailer ALL IN ONE LOCATION. I love you, youtube.
4) Querytracker- Did another agent change his or her status? Did someone leave a comment on an agent's profile? What if I missed an agent in my list of agents? I should go check....
5)Modcloth-- clothes update constantly and they are so pretty. So pretty. Expensive but pretty.
Oh internet I love you.
