Declawing Social Media

I just returned from a delightful trip to my childhood home in South Dakota. The days were filled with sunshine and family…

farm sculpture…

animals…

and more than a little history:

While at the farm, I forced myself to disconnect as much as possible, even though my dad’s house has WiFi and I did bring my phone, iPad, and laptop. I resisted the urge to post photos or updates, to scroll and like and comment, to check for the latest political news (admittedly I was less successful at that).

Now that I’m back in Milwaukee, it’s hard to get back into the swing of Facebook and Twitter and Instagram. Is that good or bad?

The answer is yes.

Beginning tomorrow, this blog series will focus for a few days on ways to declaw social media, especially in a life of writing. I’d love to hear your ideas, successes, and challenges along the way.
