a little experiment

First, I want to thank everyone for all the wonderful anniversary wishes!!

I am going to do a little experiment this week. I was inspired by Capella Kincheloe of  A Curated Lifestyle.  Last week, she vowed to stay away from social media to see the impact it had on her personal and professional life. We all know how it can consume you and between blogging, Twitter, and Facebook, I feel like I am always on my computer or on my phone. So, this week, I am going to take a break! No blog posts, no tweeting, no Facebook checking... I will still check email...c'mon, I can't stay away from the computer entirely!!!

So, I am signing off and I will be back next week to let you know how the little experiment went!!

Good for you! I'm kind of thinking I would like to do a similar experiment. . . for my sanity. But, it will have to wait :)

Hope you have a great, relaxing week!

You will love it, I think. I did this a while back. Got off of facebook and never looked back! Good for you. You will be missed, however.

Missed your anniversary post...happy belated anniversary! You two are adorable. And social media, yes. Interestingly after meeting you in NYC I started tweeting more, until I realized the amount of time it was taking and how I was focusing less on work! I'll be curious about your "findings"...have a great break!

Good for you Jade! Hope that you are energized and recharged when you return. I try to give the computer a break at certain times of the day so that I can pay attention to my boy, but I often find myself peeking!

What a great concept, although a little frightening to see how much time you spend on social media!! :) Hazel
