Simplifying: The Online Part

sam­bear has point­ed out that I go through cycles, and peri­od­i­cal­ly “draw in.” This is one of those periods.

I looked at how much time I spend on var­i­ous things, and that time isn’t in line with my priorities.

So, I’ve giv­en myself a “net bud­get,” and am lim­it­ing myself to 2–3 ses­sions a day that are not relat­ed to a spe­cif­ic task. Those are the only times I’ll have my email client open, or glance at LJ. I may or may not open a chat client—I don’t, usu­al­ly, except to speak to some­one specific. 

If you need me to reach me with any urgency, call me on the phone!

Like I said in my last post, I’m leav­ing most of the vol­un­teer work I do because I don’t have time to do it properly.

I just removed more than 100 entries from my LJ read­ing list—communities, RSS feeds, and, yes, some people.

Yes, I know all about fil­ters. They don’t work as well for me as for some people.

Please remem­ber that if I removed you, it is no reflec­tion on your worth, my esti­ma­tion of you, or the fact that I like you. It is sim­ply the fact that I’m reduc­ing the time I spend online.

I’ve nev­er been one to seek LJ fame or to care a great deal about the num­bers on my user info page. I don’t pay a great deal of atten­tion to who drops and adds me, so if you do drop me, don’t wor­ry that I’ll get offended.
