On many lists of “how to de-stress your life” there’s a recommendation for unplugging from social media. Read a book, take a walk, listen to your vinyl. For the next few days I’m doing something I haven’t done in many years. I’m (mostly) unplugging from social media. I’m traveling to spend the weekend with four fabulous friends, and we’re going to talk, shop, and laugh ourselves silly.
I’m a lifelong type A perfectionist, and I’ve always tried to manage my blog from wherever we go. I used to worry that if I “left”, or “went dark”, even for a little while, you wouldn’t think to come find me again. That’s just not true. I follow the bloggers I like on the regular, and if they’re off for a week, I look forward to their return. That’s how it works, right? You will come back, right? 😊
I pre-loaded a few Facebook articles, and I might slip in an Instagram or two while on vacation, but I’m determined not to worry about “exposure” and “metrics” and statistics. (I’ll be calling my husband on a cell phone, does that count as social media?) Life is for living, and I plan to live it up and suck all the juice out, and let the charge run down.
Have you ever disconnected for a short time? I’d love to know about your own experiences and feelings.
In light of all the above, we’re taking a one-week break from Visible Monday. Vis Monday will be back on June 10th, fresh and ready to see what you’ve been up to. In the meantime, I hope you’re seizing the day and filling your cups to the brim.
