Last year I took some time away from Facebook for a few weeks, and in the end I enjoyed it thoroughly. I’ve decided to do one again, and today is Day 2. So far, no pangs to log in and see what’s up. And I think I have no pangs because I’ve done it before and remembered how much I enjoyed not checking my phone every ten minutes.
I opted for this year’s FF (Facebook Fast) to run from yesterday, August 18, until Friday, September 25. That’s about five weeks, give or take a couple days.
As a result, you’ll see me around these parts a bit more over the next five weeks as my need to tell stories will be forced to expand from a few sentences to a complete blog post.
