I'm preparing for this Saturday's shutdown day. A full 24 hours without turning on the computer. Can I do it? Of course I can, but it's going to be quite strange.
Since I started blogging about three months ago, not a single day has passed without me spending some time at a computer, partly this is because I made a vow to write everyday, but the blogging has also become something of an obsession. Not just the writing of course, but the visiting of all the lovely bloggers I've "met" in this period. So I may suffer from mild withdrawal symptoms this Saturday.
Therefore I'm very grateful to Kristin of write now is good who directed me to a hilarious YouTube film showing other things to do with our laptops; like using them for snowboarding (no snow here though), ping pong rackets and various other activities. Visit her blog for more ideas.
Can you switch off for a whole day?
