Oh lawdy, you're crackin' me up this weekend.

I am SO stealing this and re-posting it -- because I'm a NMD too, and I have NO IDEA how in da heal it happened.

And now, you're PLURKING!! (Which has me totally lost, btw.)

Not returning phone calls? Yup. That's me. Its gotten to that point, yes it has. But I still don't text. I guess I'm a semi-literate new media doucebag.

Picture me in NJ with a Scooby-Doo look of confusion on my face.

Better a New Media douchebag than a New Media dunce.


Guilty as charged. New Media Douchebag here.


I'm sorry...I'm still stuck on the fact that you don't have a cell phone. I thought I held out for a long time, and I've had a cell phone for at least 7. How do you do it?


I loved the title and the post cracked me up. I do recall your cell phone abstinence as I also travel through life sans any attachment to my hip or ear (non-functioning as they are). I blog period and belong to no other club. I did look into Google ad sense and for the life of me could not figure out how it worked or if it worked.
Thanks for this btw.

HYSTERICAL!! I'm so glad you re-posted your New Media Douchebag or I never would have seen it.
No cell phone? I got rid of my home phone three years ago and never missed it for one second! The only local calls I made where to call in sick at work (which I did at 4 a.m. so I wouldn't have to talk to my boss), or to order a pizza. Without any long distance calls, my bill was still almost $40 a month...mostly basic fees and taxes and more taxes. Free yourself up, get a cell phone (you can keep your current phone number) and always have your "home phone" with you! Gawd, aren't you glad I just hyjacked your blog? I am such a New Media Douchebag...with a cherry on top.

Ok, Where Was I?

I keep going on to Twitter's home page and then closing it. It's like I've been smoking dope and someone just handed me meth. I don't know how I'll be able to stop b/c I'm already not able to keep up with blog reading. My goal, of course, is to read ever post in my reader everyday. Right now it's at 251. That's reasonable, right? So what will happen when I add twitter to that?

Oh, that's funny. I can't possibly qualify, because even though I have a billion online accounts (of which I use three) I don't use any of them for spreading Hatorade. I don't complain or read people that do. :) I get enough of that talking to my FAMILY!!
The three internet accounts that I haven't used since I signed up for them: Facebook, Twitter, RockYou. Totally useless.


I love this post -- but honestly, the title has me cracked up the most. May I also suggest cre8Buzz and several mom blog networks obviously belong in your constellation of NMDbaggery? Just trying to be helpful.

Personally, my problem is not all these accounts -- I have only the few I feel are *necessary* (ahem.) My problem is that once I start reading things in my reader, I lose whole days worth of time without even knowing it. I should only be allowed to have a pen and paper before 8pm every day. If only I weren't teaching an online class this summer, that might work...

Excellent post. And very comforting to me...I see know that I am fairly normal when it comes to all these 'things' we do on-line....


Are you going to run a regular English language version of this post for those of us who HAVE NO CLUE what you're talking about?!!
You may be into "New Media", but you, my dear, are NO douchebag.

New media scares me, but I had no idea how much until I read this. The only thing I recognize in your list is MySpace, which I tried to join once and got so flustered and confused I burst into tears. They send me messages daring me to come back and threatening to blow up my computer if I do.

I'm definitely in the Old School Media Club.

Or is that just the OLD Club?

I'll see all those, and raise you by a flickr.
