If I Have To Type Another Password...

...or my e-mail address, or my username, I'm going to give up all electronic means of communication and go back to pen and paper.

I have been trying to leave reviews for a friend's book on the major booksellers' websites, and of course to do that you have to register (invent a password, come up with a username, oops, you're already a member, have you forgotten your password, here, we'll send you an e-mail so you can get a new one, just go to this link and start all over again). Writing a review is nothing compared to all the clicking and making up of names that I instantly forget.

I have been trying to become more active on Facebook--I'm not sure why--and there again have come up with obstacles, such as thumbnails that won't upload (and what am I doing writing phrases like the last one?).

And finally, I have signed up on Twitter, and after many difficulties uploading my profile--caused by Twitter being "overloaded," go figure--am tweeting...which is all, as it turns out, that I have energy for.

  1. Oh, the forgetting of passwords...I'd say more, but I can't reveal too much publicly.

    I did see your review was up!

  2. And every time I think one up, it seems so brilliant, that I know I will never forget it.

  4. I know what you mean. I get so frustrated with all the password/username crap. At work we need to change our password every 6 weeks. I hate it.

    Twitter, huh? I'm cedarwaxwing if you want a follower there. Dona Patrick on FB if you want to connect there. Don't feel pressured though.
