And Now For Something Completely Different…

I think I’m going to take a page from Chris Miller‘s book come December and just unplug. I’m going to follow all the NaNonsense with 30 days of radio silence: no blogging, no Twitter, no forums or Skype or instant messaging, no Facebook or MySpace or Jaiku or any of the other Internet time sucks that eat away my life a few minutes here and a few minutes there. One post on December first to report on my successes and failures of the past thirty days and then nothing until January of 2008.

Before I go to bed on December first, I’m going to turn off commenting on the blog, put the forum in maintenance mode and disappear for a while. I’m pretty sure the Internet will be here when I get back.

In the meantime, I invite you to enjoy all of the blog posts, beard photos and novel updates that are on the way in the latter half of November.

  1. So long as you answer your email!

    I’ll probably check my e-mail, but only about once a week. I figure the people who really need to get in touch with me at any point will have my phone number.

  2. Can a leopard change its spots? You are what you are.

    I’m not looking to change my spots. If anything, a month away from the Intarwebs will show me just how much time I spend blogging, posting in forums, instant messaging, etc.

    Laura is already working on plans for my time during December, so I’m sure I’ll have plenty to do and maybe without the distraction I’ll actually get it done.

  3. Now you’re just being disingenuous, ha ha. You mean to say you don’t ALREADY know how much time you spend online? Of course you do. It’s way too much. Just like I watch too much television. Given that you probably haven’t spent a month away from the Net in who knows how long, you ARE looking to change your spots. A laudable goal but you know me: I’m skeptical. The mere fact that you’re posting about not posting speaks volumes. OK, maybe not volumes, maybe just a sentence or two.

    I’m just trying to prep the fine folks who expect to see me on a daily basis.

    As for time away from the Internets, I did a two-week stint about a year ago, I believe. This will just be an extended leave.

  5. Oh noes. KJToo.com is the only thing that makes the long days bearable. Whatever shall I do?

    Actually, I’m probably not going to put the forum into maintenance. There’s no reason you guys should continute to post just because I’ll be off gallivanting through the real world.
