Although I'm a bit older (okay, a lot older) than the targeted demographic, I have a MySpace...uh...space. No need to click on the link, really, because there isn't much there. It mostly just directs people to this blog. Plus, I'm not even sure if you can look at it without having your own MySpace...uh...space.
I originally set up a Myspace page due to peer pressure from my younger friends and my nieces and nephews and I rarely looked at it. I have now, however, found a genuine advantage to being on MySpace and I'm not talking about all the messages I get from men who seem to think that every woman on MySpace is there for dating purposes.
The advantage of which I speak is the bulletin feature which enables me to keep up with all of my favorite local bands and festivals. It's also how I found out about those great ghost hunter trips. For those of you who don't know, all you have to do is add the sites of things and bands and people you're interested in to your "Friends" and they will occasionally send out bulletins to all of their "Friends."
Granted, I can't stand to look at most of the sites for more than about three minutes because my non-14-to-25-year-old brain can't handle all the blinky stuff and graphics and weird fonts without going into sensory overload. However, it has been really cool to be asked to be "Friends" by some of my son and daughter-in-law's actual friends.
Yeah, I'm one happenin' chick.
