Posts Tagged ‘Plaxo’

I’m a little burned out on networking websites. I Twitter, I’m active on Facebook, I have a LinkedIn account, and at some point I’ve at least set myself up on plenty of others. I am a maniac on Active Rain. I have a YouTube channel. I have a Technocrati profile. Digg. Reddit. In real estate I’m on Zillow and Trulia, and that is just the tip of the iceburg. If you think I do this because it’s fun, you’re nuts. It is all about search engine optimization, or getting found and fostering readership, some of whom will eventually become clientèle. Writing the blog is fun; I love to write. It is enjoyable, therapeutic, and relaxing. The other stuff is work.

Which brings me to Plaxo. They’ve been spamming emailing me for years, and today I broke down and linked Plaxo with my Facebook to minimize my efforts (I hope). I must admit that when I see other people who seem to have the whole networking site universe set up with aplomb I get a little jealous. I just don’t want to do all the work. And don’t get me started on Typekey, WordPress, signing into things with my Yahoo!, Google, AOL, or other established account. I know the importance of this stuff, but I have to earn a living.

Of course, when I finally get my act together with all this stuff, it will go the way of MySpace. A pimp’s work is never done.
