Thanks very much to Jeanna for joining us for Turnoff Week from all the way down there in New Zealand! I love the internet. How great to be able to connect with people from all over the world so easily!
Anyhow, that’s enough of my not so profound, but very sincere thoughts.
Here is what Jeanna had to say about her Turnoff Week:
Turnoff week – how it went!
Well we don’t have TV anyway so that part was easy! My kids often watch a DVD at my parents place but we were away for the week so there was no problem with that either. I had to prepare some classes on the computer during the week so I knew I wouldn’t be able to be off it totally so my goal was
“To go on to the computer only when necessary, and to avoid Facebook completely”
I think I did really well. I didn’t go onto facebook during the week at all. I only went online to collect and send emails and I did as much preparation as I could without the use of the computer. I also didn’t turn the computer on at all during the day.
It was probably easier because it was holiday time and because we were doing things during the day. I didn’t miss facebook at all – shows how much time I waste on it now! And I got a lot more done.
I am looking forward to next year’s turn off week – would be nice to get something happening over here in NZ.
Thanks so much for telling your story Jeanna! The computer is my downfall too. I am glad you were so successful! I agree that Facebook can really take up a lot of time. Sometimes we don’t realize that until we cut it out for a week like you did.
If any other non-bloggers out there have a story to tell, send it to me right away. I’ll try to get your words on the blog before this evening when I’ll pick a random participant to win a $10 Amazon Gift Certificate.
Come back later tonight to find out who won!
