Unplugged!


Kelly (at Our Lincoln Log) and her friend, Jodi, are encouraging people to unplug from their online world and just take a day to enjoy real life outside without any distractions from your computer, phone, etc.

She asks some great questions:
  • Do you want to check your email before brushing your teeth in the morning?
  • Do you live for getting comments on your blog?
  • Do you twitter at least 5 times a day?
  • How often do you update your facebook status?
  • How many hours a day is your tv on?
  • How close to you, at this moment, is your cell phone?
Think about it

How hard would it be for you to unplug for one entire day?

  • no tv.
  • no phone. (bar an emergency, of course!)
  • no computer.
  • no internet.
Just you. Your life and your camera. (Jodi is a great photographer, hence, her encouragement to photograph your day)

Think you could do it?

Join Jodi and unplug for ONE day in the month of May. Whatever day works best for you and your family. And then commit to it. No cheating. And document it. With photos or words or both.

Then share your day with us on your blog. June 1st. On June 1st we’ll all share our days, together, on our blogs and spread the word to UNPLUG. Because I think a little unplugging is just what we all need every once in a while.

To give our creative selves a day off. To rejuvenate.
To just live. To be.

Just you. Your life. Your camera.


Feel free to share this idea with anyone you think might want to join in.

So, here goes. I'm unplugging. Check in with you all on Monday!

PS while it may appear that i already "plugged-in" today, i used the lovely schedule option on blogger and let it post for me!
