During this nearly two month hiatus from the internet, I came to know that I really appreciate many online services like:
- online banking and bill paying
- keeping in touch
- Paperback Swap
- educational resources
- weather reports
I also realized that I can happily live without other services that take away from my family. It’s time for me to hit the big DELETE button on my reader.
Since I choose not to be an impulse buyer, I don’t need to know about every great money saving deal out there. I’m no longer following the many “save money on these deals” type blogs. If I lived without a product before a great deal, I figure I can live without it after. I’m quite capable of finding great deals when I need them.
I am also deleting from my list all the blogs that have turned into advertising sites. I follow blogs because I enjoy getting ideas and gaining new perspective, not because I want to be sold a product. I don’t even watch TV commercials, so if this fits your site – sorry. It’s sad that so many wonderful sites have turned commercial. I do still enjoy reading about reviews though.
I am deleting from my reader many of the cool remodeling and craft blogs. I plan to spend the time saved, making my own crafty things for our home.
DELETE never felt so good.
