I do not write guest posts as much anymore, and I do not contribute to other sites too often. So, when it happens, I like to let you know. First, if you are not reading WorkAwesome.com, you absolutely should be. It is a new blog from the Envato network that is meant for people in an office or people who just want to get better at what they do:

WorkAwesome is a resource for the worker. It’s a blog for people who want to be awesome at work. It’s also a blog for people who want to find work, or simply quit work. Whether you need to know how to make a kick-ass PowerPoint presentation or survive the office Christmas party (hint: stay away from the CEO’s flirtatious wife), we’ve got it.

Given that I have worked in cube farms for most of my career, and there were not many resources for the office worker, I wanted to contribute. So, my post went live yesterday! Take a look at Balancing Work And Social Media Addiction and make sure you take a look at the rest of the site too. Here is the first part of the post:

So, you have a normal 9 to 5 job. You are also addicted to social media like FriendFeed, Twitter and the rest. How do you balance your activities so nothing really suffers?

The first thing you must do is figure out what type of commitment you want to make to your social media sites. You can pick a few of your favorite social sites to focus on. If your day job is sitting in a cube or corporate office somewhere, then you will need to limit your activity in some way. If you want to be like Robert Scoble or Louis Gray, you will have to give up some sleep to stay active on several sites.

If you want to read more, just head over to Balancing Work And Social Media Addiction.
