Writing a book is a magical and messy process for me. My blog gives me the space to share how the process impacts me. Last week I came to some conclusions about my time online. I realized I need to set deeper digital boundaries.
Today I came up with a schedule I think I can live with for the next several months. Here’s my digital diet for the week of April 9.
- Check my smart phone for email, texts, tweets, and Facebook posts in the evening.
- Leave my smart phone at home during the work week unless I am meeting someone in person and/or travelling.
- Post one blog per week on WordPress and Tumblr.
- Use Pinterest two days a week (no more than 1 hour).
- Tweet on Twitter on Digital Sisterhood Wednesdays (end tweeting by 9:00 pm).
- Post on Facebook and Google+ two days a week (that includes Digital Sisterhood Wednesdays).
- Use Flickr, YouTube, and Vimeo when I have photos and videos to upload.

Have you ever unplugged from your tech life, gone on a digital diet, or taken a digital sabbatical?
