My computer is a total time sucker. At times I even feel like it is sucking the life right out of me. I need to check out how I can schedule my posts in advance and see if I can experiment a little.
What I would like to do is take a day every once in a while and be computer free. Since I work in IT, it would have to happen on a weekend. It would be so weird and out of character for me!
In addition to my job, I use my computer to pay bills, check email, read the news, keep up with family and friends on Facebook, learn new things, read and write blogs. Could I actually do this?
I wonder if it would be worth it. I will still have to write the blog post if I want to keep up the post a day challenge. I will still need to pay the bills, either the day before or the day after. My email will just accumulate and will take more time to read. No news will mean I may want to watch it on television to keep up with the current events. I will have more facebook posts to read. The learning aspect will probably save me time. But, the reading of blogs will be a little backed up.
I suppose that I could skip reading the blogs for a day and just pick up on the next day, but I know me. That wouldn’t happen. I will want to go back to the previous day’s post and then read the current day.
But still, I think a computer free day will sooth the soul. It will give me time to do the other things in life that I want to do, from decluttering to spending the afternoon reading a good book.
Can you imagine it? Would you feel comfortable without your computer for a day? I may have to try this and see what happens!
