A funny thing happened.
Wednesday: I stopped using the internet. I deleted my Facebook, unplugged my wireless card, didn’t use Skype, didn’t tweet. I was cut off. (It was also the most productive day of work I’ve had in a long time.)
Thursday: I met with my friend Billy Riddle, founder and President of Why The Woods. He asked if I’d serve on his board of directors and be in charge of a bunch of things including but not limited to: internet activities such as starting and running a Why The Wood’s Twitter and Facebook fan page.
A funny thing indeed.
In order to work on the Why The Wood’s Facebook page, I have to reactivate my Facebook page. I haven’t had the heart to reactivate it yet. Well, that’s a lie. I reactivated it, pushed enter, looked at the screen once it loaded, stated out loud, “This stresses me out.” and immediately deactivated it again. Baby steps, I suppose. I did, however, create a Twitter page for Why The Woods. (www.twitter.com/whythewoods) Follow us.
From the beginning I’ve said that the “50 ways list” isn’t a strict guideline, but rather a template for how to live life. This instance is no different. You have to roll with the punches. (If you would dare call something as incredibly sweet as this opportunity a “punch”.) So, I’m back online. Don’t tell anyone but I’m not planning on reactivating my Facebook for another couple of weeks.
