Klout Scores Impact on Relationships
Every once in a while my hubby gets upset that I spend so much time on the computer. Sometimes it’s not the computer but my Droid. I decided to cut my time online short the past week and noticed my Klout score took a dive.
Of course I would rather have the Klout score take a dive than the marriage but I got to wondering: “How do you handle the time on computer vs. your relationships?” Is it a tricky balancing act for you?
- Do you set time limits online?
- Do you take weekends off?
- Do you set hours that you regularly go offline?
- Do you go online together?
It was never like this until we started our websites 2 years ago. At first he would do a lot of it with me but then lost interest and I spent a lot of time online learning and working the websites. He was the first one to blog on our infectious disesse blog. He is a really good writer. He recently did an e-Phamplet for our scrub site. It really became my passion doing the online work to drive traffic to the sites through SEO, blogging and social media. He handles the other ends of the business: customer service, products, suppliers, etc.
Then people started asking me a lot of questions about getting traffic to their websites or blogs. That’s how this blog was formed. It was fun for me. It still is to this day. But there are days I get addicted to it and the social media that comes along with it all. I just have to unplug for a little while sometimes.
Klout does have some nice perks but I think marriage has much bigger perks that Klout could ever offer. Klout may send me to lunch or send me a nice tee-shirt to wear but it cannot sit there and talk with during lunch or dinner. Klout is more like a Rubik’s Cube to me. I try to figure out what makes a score go higher. Just when I think I get it – it changes. So if I am offline at times you know I’m working on my marriage vs. my Klout score.
How do you manage your time online with your husband/wife or significant other?
