I’ve never been officially diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but I’m pretty sure some aspects of my personality line up with it. I don’t obsess over everything, it’s usually just focused on a specific area(s) for a particular amount of time.

A month or so ago it was keeping up with Twitter. Whenever I got back to a computer I’d check to see who had written what and whether or not I had missed any interesting links. Then I started using it with Google Talk and things got a bit easier. With all the issues Twitter’s been having and the growing number of people I’m following, it’s forced me to reduce the need to catch everything. And that’s a good thing.

My main problem now is my Google Reader. It’s way too full. Somehow I managed to get myself up to 52 subscriptions. Granted several of these feeds are seldom (if ever) updated, but on the other hand there are two that post at least 10-15 a day.

So my friends of the interwebs, how do you manage everything?

  1. you re-arrange the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, and I don’t fold your clothes because you are so particular..I’d say you’re OCD for sure.

  2. I don’t know… I enjoy keeping up with these things… I think that’s why I’ve been a bit non-committal to twitter… I do, however like the idea.
    We silly humans must have had a lot of time on our hands before internet!

  3. Take a look at your Aunt Mardi and your brother Brian, and for that matter your cousins Kecia and Christopher are OCD, and so was your dad. Sorry but it runs in the family!
    As to keeping your internet stuff straight it’s easier if you just don’t have it that way you have nothing to worry about.
    Love you 🙂
