I know, I know. I’ve been called everything from “the world’s smartest woman” to “one of the most self-absorbed people I know”. People say I talk too much, but I think I’m just being honest.
I am constantly on my phone, scrolling through my Instagram feed, and typing and editing out all the stories that I want to share. I’m not one to just sit back and watch the world spin around me, and I’d like to think that’s a good thing.
After reading this post, I now have an internet habit I can start to incorporate into my everyday life. I may not be able to use it at all, but it’s still more beneficial than not at all.
I’m a big fan of the idea of the ‘single digits’ internet. What this means is that we are using the internet in a way that is so low-tech or even completely obsolete that it is almost impossible to navigate.
I see people in their 20’s and 30’s all the time asking me if I have a single digit internet. In fact, they feel like they would be embarrassed if they saw me without it.
There is an interesting article on Medium that you might want to take a look at if you haven’t already. The author of this piece, @David_Simmons_, is a big fan of using The Three Levels of Self-Awareness to help others navigate the internet and the world around them. And it is a great way to get people to stop and think about their surroundings.
this week’s single digit internet is my new go-to site to find the perfect gift for my husband and son. These are the items that are so thoughtful, yet so specific, that they will make me feel like a good wife and mom.
I’ve been in this position before, where I’m not sure what I want for a blog post. Like, what should I write about?? I know I could write about a new product I’ve been trying out or a new restaurant, but I’m thinking something more than that. I know I could write about a lot of things, but I always get lost in the thoughts of what I’m going to write about.
When I first started to use the internet, I was using it as a learning tool to learn new skills. I was using my laptop and my phone to learn how to code and learn how to do my taxes. Over time, I started to use the internet for other things. I would use the internet to learn about the internet or to talk to people. That’s when I learned that I should use the internet more to learn about the internet or to talk to people.
As a writer, I find myself writing a lot on my laptop, and I can’t stand it. So I usually log on to the internet late at night to read and write. I have noticed a few days where I have nothing to write and I just sit staring at the screen wondering what’s happening in the world.
