week #32 in an experimental year…

One of my rituals for each new year is to choose a word to influence me for the year. My word for 2011 is EXPERIMENT. To support my EXPERIMENTAL focus, I commit to post the results of a new experiment each Sunday of this year.

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know I’ve been UnPlugged this past week.   So my experiment for this week will come as no surprise.

I ‘went without’ Facebook and Twitter.   Have to admit I normally tune into Facebook at least once a day.  I’m not as regular a visitor of Twitter, but I do normally visit a few times a week.

Since I’m still UnPlugged at the time this entry was auto-posted,  I’ll post my lessons as soon as I RePlug.

In the meantime, I send you all ALL that is good.


UPDATE:  It’s funny about PLANS.  I knew I’d be UnPlugged this past week, but little did I know HOW UnPlugged.   When I’m away from home I usually have someeeeeeeeee online access (in case I need it for emergencies).  This week there was NONE.

So my Social Media – Free week:

  • absolute;
  • a little frustrating ’cause I couldn’t have even if I’d wanted to; and
  • freeing.
Here’s what I learned.
  • Most of the shifts I felt are related to Facebook.
  • It’s not unusual for me to check into Facebook a few times a day.   Once will be enough now.
  • I’ve gotten a little lazy about using Facebook to connect with people I’d once connected with in more personal ways.  I’m going back to my OLD ways.
  • I do LOVE Facebook!  So it’s a choice I’m going to continue to make, in a way that feels more healthy for me.
If you’re a Facebook Person, how do you manage your time there instead of allowing your time there to manage you?
