It is a funny story, but a few years ago, I started noticing something. I was scrolling through a blog and I came across a post from a friend who wrote it, “If you want to learn about the Internet, pick up the phone and dial 1-800-555-1224.” There are plenty of reasons that this post resonated with me.
I am by no means an expert on the internet, but I am going to try to convince you to just get off the internet.
If you want to make your life easier, you can get off the internet. This means you should stop visiting websites like the one we have on our website. Why are you on Facebook? What’s your goal? How do you feel now? You don’t need to answer those questions. There is so much more out there for you to focus on. This is not just about looking for other people that you know.
The internet is a very powerful tool for getting things done. It can be a way to make money, get a better job, or find more information about something. In some cases, it can also be a place where things go down the drain. We all probably know someone who has had to give up their internet because they just couldn’t keep up with all the stuff they were having to do.
We’re all guilty of this. We often click away from the internet as soon as we get home from a long day of work. But I’m here to tell you, you can do this. You can make an effort to be on the internet for at least an hour a day. It doesn’t have to be online a hundred times a day. Just, get off the internet. Yes, that does require a change of mindset.
After years of being told to just stop “searching” on the internet, I finally did so. I found this website called “The internet is not a diary” and it helped me understand that I was not alone. I had read a lot about this new found freedom and found it inspiring. It also gave me hope that we as a society should never let our personal lives go completely unchecked.
I have a lot of friends who live in different parts of the country, and I am sure they all have their favorite websites. I am not one of those. I do not have a favorite website, a favorite blog, or even a favorite social site. I don’t have a favorite way to get information, and I am not one of those people who is obsessed with their favorite social media.
I’ve been feeling a bit of a block lately just due to the fact that I always seem to think a blog post has too much content, but not enough information, or an article is too long and not enough information. A common question is why I need to spend hours to write something that I could have just edited, or why I need to write so much. I mean, I know the answer to both is because I am going to be writing for a while.
