I keep getting invitations for LinkedIn, followed by incessant reminders that I've been invited by such and such, sometimes a friend or acquaintance and sometimes a complete stranger. I wish I would stop receiving these and, more importantly, I wish people would stop inviting me. It puts me in an awkward position if the person is a friend or acquaintance, because I don't want that person to think, wrongly, that I don't wish to stay connected in some way. I simply have absolutely no interest in joining any social networking sites: not LinkedIn, not Facebook, not Flavour-of-the-Day-Site. I have e-mail and I have phone, I post occasional updates on LJ, send locals periodic updates on singing gigs, and occasionally can be found on IM or Skype. I have no need for or spare time to devote to social networking sites. So, if you were contemplating adding me to your LinkedIn network, please don't: it's not a reflection on how I regard you personally when I ignore any attempts to get me to join this or any other social networking site.

There is probably a link in the invite that will allow you to opt out of further invites. I say that just since many of your friends may not see this blog post. I won't invite you, I promise.

I just got great news, BTW; the wound is filling in well and I should be out of the hospital within the week.
