  1. Oh goodness, that was timely. I can't have a no computer day (makes it a bit difficult to run an online shop!) but I realise that I'm completely addicted to email and know I start getting antsy when I can't check for orders etc. (though I only need to know which orders have come through when it comes to order packing time).
    So I will join you in spirit by having some times during the day when I turn my computer OFF (or at least put it on standby 🙂

  2. You are so right. I have actually thought about deleting my blog all together because I spend too much time posting and reading everyone elses. Think I will try the no computer day and see how it works… thanks to you, Toni and Blair!

  4. I stumbled upon your lovely blog when I was looking through my typepad stats this morning. Thank you for all your kind words, and sharing your thoughts about needing a computer free day. It was a very necessary goal for me, and it proved to do so much for my mind. I had no choice except to participate in life on Friday, it was nice.

  5. Bravo. Excellent post. So sensible, and while I depend on you for the lovely…to hear good common sense too is excellent.
    I already use Firefox and Bloglines, but Rocket Post is a new one to me. Thanks so much for sharing that!
    Anything to allow life to run more smoothly is wonderful for me!

  7. Ah, to have a no-computer day! I use mine to earn a living on ebay so it is not feasible but I did a somewhat modified version of this a while back. I have a choice few blogs saved to my bookmarks. I look at those. On a rare day, I might check another if someone mentions a rather interesting tidbit but I do try to limit myself to my favorites. If you have gotten comments from me, then you know you are on "the list". 🙂 Of course, I am a total lazy slob when it comes to updating my own blog so I don't waste any time there. I never feel I have anything worthy of reading on there anyway. My life tends to be rather mundane and same-old, same-old, but I do love reading others' little life tales. My days are warmed when I read of Finley's charming exploits! All in all, a PC Free Day is an excellent idea. I will get a whole WEEK and a HALF in April when we go on our cruise so that will truly be a vacation for me! One thing to suggest….don't all of you take the same day every week or those of us who are still feeding the addiction will go bonkers on that day! 😉

  9. I have cut down drastically lately, becaue it WAS eating into my day far too much. Now, when I am finished in the mornings, I turn the thing off, and it doesn't go on again until after dinner – good aren't I? *lol*
    So I should be able to wean myself into a no-computer day (fingers crossed).
