Don’t get me wrong, I have missed updating and writing on the blog over the past 2 ½ months, but I really needed the time away to focus on other things in my life.
This is the post that never made it live back in July:
I Don’t Want To Be Connected (To Electronics, That Is)
Over the past month, I have been struggling with being “connected” by the internet and cell phone. For the first time in my life, I am not concerned about the amount of time I am spending online because I am met with my own personal resistance to being connected. I am perturbed by a society that is connected to their cell phones and internet connections every waking minute.
In the month of June, I inadvertently started to break away from blogging* and the internet in general. I think I posted once a week for two or three weeks. I checked my email every several days but I was horrible at responding back. It was so bad that I even received a second and third email from a friend who was worried that something happened to me!
With the fast-paced world around us, I have been yearning for the truly simple life. A life with no real plans on the weekends and time spent together with friends and family face-to-face.
Have you gone through a phase that you completely disconnect from the internet and your cell phone?
So, what have I been up to over the past 2 ½ months? A lot! I have several posts to write and update my faithful followers on what we have been up to here on the homestead including what we decided to do with our broody hen, how our garden turned out this year, our new way of eating gluten/dairy and sugar-free, and many other topics.
The only difference from the past is that I will not be posting nearly as much as I used to: most likely just once a week.
To all the readers who have stuck with me through all of this, THANK YOU.
