  1. I have no idea where they find the time! I carve out time daily to write in this blog, but finding the kind of time it would take to track someone, especially someone I don’t even like, would be impossible. I’d rather be doing my own thing and my own thing is usually something I enjoy that makes me happy.

  2. That’s true. In doing my own research for the short story I wrote I found myself spending hours and hours tracking down facts. It could easily have been a full time job! When I don’t like someone, I could not even imagine wanting to “watch” them online. The thought makes me nauseous.
