I've noticed a problem with my computer habits since I've started blogging.
On days that I work when I'm tied to my desk, I spend my time blogging. Between calls, I devote my time to reading and commenting on blogs, responding to comments, and writing new entries to post here. I enjoy the interaction and conversations among the friends I've met here.
I have no problem with my blogging habits on those days.
On days that I have off, however, I find myself hovering around my computer, refreshing my feed reader for new entries, constantly afraid that I'll miss something or be late in responding to a comment.
I've come to realize that, frankly, that habit is quite ridiculous.
While I thoroughly enjoy the blogs that I read, I shouldn't be spending the time off that I have in front of a computer screen. I should be out enjoying my time, doing whatever that activity may interest me.
That said, I'm no longer going to focus on blogging on the weekends. I'm going to unplug and enjoy my time. If I don't leave a comment on an entry or respond to your comment for a few days, I'm not ignoring you. Life is too short to spend it at a computer all the time.
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend, and I'll see you on Monday!
