I gave up Facebook the moment that I got invited to Google+. I figured, no one would miss me (after all it's Facebook) and that I would not be missing out on anything.
Turns out, I was wrong. A lot of people kept asking me "did you delete Facebook?" and Brian got a few questions too "Where did your wife go?"
But it was no one I couldn't get a hold of or convert to G+, so all is well. The other thing? Since ditching Facebook, I've practically ditched Twitter too. Also, I noticed a few of my regular reads were only regular because they posted to one of those two websites. So I missed out on quite a few blogs lately.
I think it all started with me giving up my iPhone. I know that is unfathomable to some people that I don't miss it (yes, you Mom) but honestly, it's great. Did you know I only have to charge my cell phone once a week? And it only takes an hour to charge? You have no idea how great it feels to have actual keys under your fingers when you are typing!
I thought I would really miss being so connected and plugged in. Turns out, I don't. Every time I get online now, it feels like the first time in AGES, even though I work on the computer all day. I am not checking FB/Twitter constantly. I'm not checking Google+ constantly either. It's so... nice to be ....normal again!
What's one thing you gave up that you didn't think you could?
