Or write books. Or walk dogs. Or whatever is your particular passion. I know. Whine, whine, whine. We've all heard it a gajillion times before and we've all read others saying it and rolled our eyes. C'mon, don't pretend you haven't.
But this time it's me! Do I want to figure out how to create a blog? Do I want to figure out how to write a Squidoo lens? Do I want to fight Facebook to get a photography page going on there? No! No! No! A million times no! (like, really emphatically)
I just want to take photographs (she said meekly). Apparently if you are not independently wealthy or have mysterious automatic entry to endless buyers of your art or writing, you can't just take photographs/write/walk the dog and expect people to throw their millions at you. It's just a fact today. Apparently you have to go through this painful social networking process. And believe me, it is painful. Sooo painful. I actually cried with Facebook Frustration yesterday (stop laughing, it's a bona fide affliction that I made up this very minute). I feel your pain.
But I'm here, living and breathing and over my Facebook Frustration, to tell you that if you are not one of those techno-whizzes who can whip up a Squidoo lens, a twitter account, a blog and a business Facebook page in a couple of hours, there is still hope. You can (after much gnashing of teeth and swearing at google) figure it out. Persevere. If I can do it, you can do it. It may not be perfect, but it's a start.
And here is what Samson has to say about that:
Yeah. Just throw the ball and get over it.
