First off, I have to apologize for not having a more in-depth post. Tomorrow, I make the big move from Germany to Chicago… things have been quite hectic between packing, tying up loose ends, and visiting with friends, writing a post about blogging didn't seem to be at the top of my list of things to do. And sometimes that's ok. It's only this week… but spending all this time away from the computer has brought up some thoughts about how much time I spend blogging.
Bloggers naturally spend a lot of time at the computer, we share a lot of our lives and our thoughts online. Though lately, I've been wondering if it's too much? Between Facebook and Twitter, and reading everyone's blogs racking up hours in front of the computer can be quite easy, and that's just the socializing part.
Offline time is important. Meeting friends in real life, taking a walk in the forest, drawing a picture, baking cookies, going to the zoo…. all things which may not directly affect your blog, but they do… they keep things fresh, they keep you more healthy in mind and in body.
It's important not to let your offline life slip away.
What do you do when you're not blogging?
