It's been a whirlwind of activities from Wednesday of the past week to today's Wednesday. Time as always was a precious commodity.
Last night, in the wee hours, as my family lay quiet in their beds, my hand flew over the keys of my laptop, and once again I was thankful to have been able to publish a blog at Happy Feet in the Netherlands. My baby step to recording my great adventure in running my first full marathon : Happy Feet Warms-Up for Berlin Summer 2012.
Still unsure if I would be doing a daily update or a weekly update. I am tending to do a daily one. Looking around how other runners I admire have done it, and how the runners I've just gotten to know, who are also currently in training are doing it.
Speaking of daily blogs, I still have all the posts from last week's daily photos on draft mode. My goal of simplifying life simply took priority: sleeping early (not in the wee hours of the morning!); quality time with my family, and simply the need to (semi-) unplug from life online (I still have not completely unplugged for an entire day but I aim to!)
This week is not much different from last week. It will only get busier.
I am currently working up what I hope would be an effective online/home-office schedule for myself to maximize the quality of time I spend online, and writing worthwhile blogs. More unplugging, and more structured blogging are the goals for this year. It's something I would love to do a blog series on: unplugging as a trending lifestyle.
Ironic that the more I write and expand my horizon, widen my online network, the more the need arise to unplug regularly.
How do you balance life online and offline? Could you imagine being totally unplug from all source of technology and information for a day, for a week, a month or even an entire year?
