The past few months I have been very quiet on the social media front. Besides my regular twitter shares or an occasional photo of Captain Adorable, I have restricted myself from posting (and checking the "likes") as it was becoming part of my real life and I wanted some space.
The first few days were the hardest - but then I started using the Internet the way I always have - for getting reading material, searching key words or concepts and sending emails.
This process has led me to create a "pocket" (an offline article reader) as well as participate in free online courses.
It has been LIBERATING.
Of course I still peek at what my friends are doing - but it is not an addiction anymore.
Now I need to get back to blogging and writing my next book!
