The annoying side to our online worlds…

So for about an hour now… I think.  I’ve been on Pinterest. You know that place that makes you feel like you’re being productive when really all you are doing is wasting away a perfectly good rainy day. The place when you can pin things on a virtual pin board and not have to worry about having a real one in the real world.

I have a real pin board or cork board or whatever you want to call it – it has I think one thing pinned onto it. One. My pinterest however has hundreds of pins – could you imagine what my kitchen where said pin board is – would look like if it was the other way round? I simply do not want to know! Ahhh the chaos. This is why I like/love pinterest! It makes for a uncluttered kitchen. Now if only there was something out there that did the same for my bedroom… which is pretty much the opposite – oops!

However, there is one thing I do not like about our online worlds. Having to subscribe to nearly every site just simply so I can browse it is frustrating. When doing so you start to receive email upon email. In these emails they contain promotions, deals, sales, new items, etc that gets added to the site. If I wanted to find this information out I would direct myself to the website!

I do not want a cluttered inbox of emails that I don’t read. All I want to be able to do is browse a site with clothes/home-wares/stationery/most anything else… be inspired to be more productive, creative, to make things myself, arty, possibly buy things, have ideas for blogging, cooking, etc.

I do not want to be a member of those websites unless I am actually interested in doing so!!

Besides anything that I am a member of by choice I usually lose interest after about the 5th or 10th email because it just seems to be the same old stuff. Being a member to me only really helps to make online purchases easier. It doesn’t help in any other way. I’m sorry to say.

I think the online world’s job is to make life easier not more frustrating… All I wanted to do was look at some amazing bed linen… that’s it! But guess what? The site asked me subscribe and stopped me from going further.

Signing off… deep in frustration. 😛
