Social media has changed me and not for the better. On the surface it has been fun, exciting, even educational. But some where, some when, it corrupted me. It stole moments from my family. It distracted me from my work, from my writing and from me being me.
So I’m starting the process of unplugging. Or how I like to describe it, prepping for social media amputation. The first stage is to block access by deleting all social apps off my phone. This is my “second thoughts” or “cooling off” phase. I can still change my mind at this point.
Stage two: Rubicon. This is the actual deleting of my Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, G+, tumblr, Posterous, GetGlue, Untapped and Instagram accounts. No turning back, only starting over. Yikes!
