I'm quitting the interwebs one day a week. You should too.


The command decision has been made to not log onto the internet on Wednesday's. I don't know if I can do it. I am not sure I even want to do it. My hope is this will create a personal culture of productivity. I still hold strong doubts.

I am pretty sure I can survive with out one day of the internet. As far as my job goes, I will still use the ever essential Outlook (email & calendar) system. Other then that there is no real reason I am online.

I will miss some emails. I will long for gchat. And I fear the facebook backlash. I can see it now "Oh yes, post this horrifying picture of her, Mary won't log on for 24 more hours"... but really? Should I care. No. You all know what I look like.

So, kids, Wednesdays will be computer free. I chose Wednesdays because that is today and it is not Sunday. I considered doing Sunday, but that is cheating since I barely am online Sunday and I like to write long, unnecessary, rambling emails to friends on Sunday complaining about all of you and my job and detailing the days when I will become some elected leader and will put them into my cabinet.

On Wednesday I will do all sorts of other things. I am already daydreaming about what next week holds. The hobbies I will revive. The starving puppies I will feed. The bills I will pay. The rooms I won't clean. The world I will save.

Join me?

Sounds like a great idea! I don't think I have that kind of self-control, though. The internet is the only grown-up conversation I get all day long.

PS Would I be in your cabinet?

I may be able to commit to this as well...I am mulling it over. I like the idea. I'm thinking it will be Saturday for me.
