As a Valentine’s Day gift to myself, I am going to show some self-love and challenge myself (thank you, Karen Rivers for the idea) for a full week offline from blogging and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, blogs, etc.) Â Zero Facebook. Â Zilch Instagram. Â Instead of update or scrolling through your nonsense, I will read a book, write some personal stuff, socialize with friends, and focus on my own sense of solitude.
This is going to be a grueling test of my fortitude. Â I know most of my friends are laughing, expecting failure, but like the Olympians in Sochi, I will not stop until I am on the podium with my gold medal. Â I will be checking my email, so if you need me, you can reach me from Saturday, February 15 to Saturday, February 22 at neilochka at yahoo dot com, or you can find my phone number on Facebook.
Wish me luck. Â I will return with a blog post, my addiction to social media forever broken, and my joy of writing and blogging renewed.
And Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you, especially Juli. Â And my sincere apologies to anyone on Facebook who has a birthday next week, because I will miss saying happy birthday to you. Â I’ll make up for it on February 23rd.
