So Friday I wrote on the last bit of my Hope post on how I’d be joining up with NapTime Diaries and The Tiny Twig (among others) for #analogweeked. Friday night-Monday morning it’s a conscious step back from social media to spend more time with family, writing, reading, etc.
I always want to know how someone did with these things since follow through isn’t one of my top ten best qualities. Especially online. So I decided to share mine.
Friday evening after Sam got home, I thought about what a social media break meant to me. The obvious were no Facebook or Twitter. And no Instagram. I wasn’t sure what else since there isn’t a ton more, so those were the three. I rarely use LinkedIn or Pinterest.
Facebook just annoys me lately, so that one was easy. If I got on my computer I didn’t open a tab, and last month I deleted the app off my phone.
Twitter I use more to publish posts and IG photos than “chat” – so pretty simple to avoid it. I also had deleted it off my phone.
Instagram was a problem. I changed the settings to not alert me of new comments, but the app itself I didn’t want to delete only to reinstall Monday. The app and the use of Instagram at all go hand in hand.
