In talking with my housemate Jake, we joked about how much of a time suck facebook and twitter is. As a result, my novel reading, project upkeep, dog walking, and most importantly: blog updating time has suffered. Sheesh!
So I vowed to stay off those sites from Wednesday through March 1. That's right folks, nearly a week. So far so good, despite a serious test of not one, not two but three direct messages! Talk about having some will power.
So, I challenge you to try it too. I swear it won't be as bad as giving up all sugar. Or finally quit biting your fingernails after thirty plus years. But altering your behavior and habits does take determination and will power. And quitting cold turkey is the only way to do it.
