I have been volunteering for quite some time with a local free clinic. I just love being part of the team that provides and supports this kind of thing. I occasionally volunteer during clinic hours to do exit interviews but most of my volunteer work is actually done online. I am their social media chick.
This gives me a great reason to stay abreast of the latest social media stuff (I maintain a Facebook page, Pinterest account, Twitter feed, and just started a Tumblr for our Executive Director). What that means is that I have a good reason for the time I spend dinking around online.
I occasionally do something or other that isn't related to my very important charity work but, you know, the vast majority of my online time is invested in the very important task of furthering my clinic's social media message.
I have to go now. It's time for me to ignore the laundry and hang out on Facebook and Pinterest— it's for the poor!
