How much time is too much time??

How much time is too much time to be spending on the computer promoting your business on the many variety of tools on the www! Well let's see there is Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, MSN, ICQ just to name a few. Then there is all the chat rooms on the variety of sites like Oztion, Etsy, Ebay, RubyLane. Then you have all the blogs that you need to update all the time in order to try to drive your customer to your preferred site of sales if you actually do sell on the Internet, lets face it though if you don't sell on the Internet you are missing out on the many possible millions of customers who love to shop online and don't have to worry about moving their bottoms off of their comfy chair which has molded very nicely to their butt! LOL.. Yes I have one of those chairs myself!

Well you know that you need to turn off the computer and walk away from it for a day when your hand is permanently stuck in the Microsoft mouse position for one, and when everyone in your family yells out "Mum, I got no undies!" These are two certain things that you really do need to get back to the real world and remove you stuck butt from the computer chair and get outside for some fresh air - or to the clothes line to hang out the 8 loads of washing that you have neglected!

So what are you waiting for? Get off your bottom and go for a walk or do something else for a little while. Then when you get back you can check out my things!

Hi Jenny, thanks for checking out my blog and for your comment. I just read this post and I can totally relate to what you are saying. Trying to promote my shop has turned up to be a full-time job in itself, which means my house chores get totally neglected. Good luck with your blog and your shop.

oh I can totally relate- my husband says I am neglecting him at night... haha. Congrats to you on everything- hopefully we'll ALL get some sales soon from all the work we've put into it.

With all the places you can promote, it can be overwhelming. I have a Rolodex of online registrations and passwords just so I can remember what I have to keep up with :)
