Well, after taking a week break from browsing, I am trying to figure out what was gained. If the point was to reduce the amount of time wasted in our house, we failed miserably. We can always find other ways to “waste” time. If the goal was to step back and evaluate the place for browsing in our life, it was a success. Much of our communication with others is through blogs, and that was sorely missed, but much time is also lost in blogrolling of pointless blogs. One of my first tasks when I jumped back on was to thin out the blogs that I read regularly. I don’t really need to read 30+ food blogs. The other area of reduction is the mind-numbing trolling via StumbleUpon, and chasing blog and google trails. After stepping back, it disturbingly resembles channel-surfing. So, I will try to be a little more purposeful about browsing, and when that purpose is achieved, or seen as unachievable, I will get off. I hope.
