Jeannette 2.0

My family didn't have cable when my brother and I were growing up. My parents still don't have cable or satellite.

They watch free TV.

At the ripe old age of 23ish, I became the proud sponsor of basic cable. Man, I was hooked. I was blown away by stupid shows, some of which I still love today *cough* MXC *cough*.

My cable infatuation faded once repeat season came around.

Repeats are boring.

I lost interest.

Eventually I ended up not owning a TV for more than a year. I never missed it because I didn’t need it. I prefer music to television. And the Internet was my TV.

Yoo Hoo…

Aren’t you supposed to be writing about Jeannette 2.0?

Focus, woman.

The original point of my blog…

2.0 – that’s the new me.

It started with regular eMail, instant messaging and of course, I created a MySpace profile. And for several years, I didn’t do much else.

Next thing you know, I’m blogging, twitter-ing, flickr-ing, ifreelance-ing, del.icio.us-ing, blogcatalog-ing… and amazingly, there’s more! And once you start, you have to maintain, constantly improve and add content to those different ‘places’.

Less than two years ago, I didn’t even own a TV and barely used my computer for anything outside of school or work purposes and now I’ve bulked up my technology muscles to become a savvier version of my former self.
