This post is brought to you by the NaBloPoMo July prompts from BlogHer. This month, I am writing about connections.
Today’s Prompt: Do you find it easy to go offline during vacation?
Uh, have you read my “Unconnected” post? Then you know the answer to this is NO. My brother and I used to pay a pretty penny to get internet at our off-the-grid cottage in Canada. Okay, I paid it. I couldn’t help myself. It was right when Facebook was big and my friends and I had started a political blog. I needed to stay connected.
These days, I work a support job and find it tough to completely step away. I will turn my email off and only check it once a night. The laptop comes along to blog, put pictures on Facebook, or to get into details on work assignments. One of these days, I think I need a truly disconnected vacation. I think my family needs me to have that. Is it possible?
(Where I’d go if I could go away from it all, perhaps)
By the way, today is my Blogoversary, three years of blogging here at ‘lil Burghers. Thank you to the faithful readers for stopping by and keeping me motivated to write and share. Hugs for all!
