This is the week—I think this is the week— that Dr. Lisa Marotta challenged us to take a technology time out. No, we don’t have to go cold turkey, completely giving up all of our little techie devices we’ve grown to depend on and love. But in taking the pledge for “screen free week,” we were to strive for balance. Try “talking” to someone on the phone rather than texting. Maybe engaging in face-to-face dialogue rather than "facebooking." Or reading a book rather than watching TV or playing a video game or...blogging.
|Big lesson I've learned about blogging: If I|
don't write, readers won't come!
So in a desperate attempt to resuscitate my blog and remain true to the spirit of screen free week, I’m resorting to cheating—uh, I mean, borrowing. And in blog-speak “borrowing” means providing a link. If you’ve not already read Lisa’s blog, hop on over there and see what she has to say about taking time out from technology and tuning in to life. There’s so much wisdom in what she has to say, you’ll probably want to take the pledge yourself.Next week, I’ll let you know how my tech time out went.
