February "No Facebook" Challenge!!



Wow, I’m late posting this one!!



February’s challenge is one I am so excited about! Twenty-nine days (yay, leap year!) of no facebook! How many of you are like me and check facebook every morning to see what’s going on in everyone’s lives? How many times a day do you check facebook? Post to facebook? Add pictures to facebook? With the addition of the smart phone in our lives we are ever more increasingly connected digitally yet at the same time we are so ever expanding the disconnect between our friends and family. If it doesn’t wind up on a “status” or “wall” or (heaven forbid!) our friends and family have neglected to even have a facebook page, we just don’t know what’s going on in each other’s lives or keep in touch whatsoever. What ever happened to good, old fashioned letter writing? Phone call? Meeting face to face?



February’s Challenge

No Facebook!
Write a letter or note to one person everyday this month and send it.



Expected Benefits

Less wasted time…on facebook
Better communication with family and friends
Reconnection with family and friends
Making someone else’s day with a kind word and a little extra effort!



Expected DifficultiesI won’t know what going on with anyone!!!
Habit, Habit, Habit!! Going to be one to break!


The Rules:
I will not check facebook for events, wall postings, to see what’s going on, etc. No facebook. I must write a letter or note to friends and family and send it for each day in February.
Exceptions: Private messages between clients. I use it as email in many cases. These come to my Blackberry and I can respond from there or my computer.
My Blog automatically will post to facebook and do a few of my websites.



Your Challenge!!If you don’t think you can make it the whole month, why not try 10 days or maybe even 5 days. Take the Facebook “cleanse” and break out those pens and notecards! Send an encouraging note to 5 or 10 people this month and let them know you were thinking of them!


Let me know how you are doing!! Remember, I can’t check facebook follow me from the blog and leave your comments below!!
