If anyone tuned in on Friday for ‘Thought for Friday’ I’m sorry I didn’t post. It wasn’t that I didn’t have a thought, it’s just that I was away from home and was somewhere with no internet access. No browsing, blogging, facebooking or twittering. Life without the net.
It gave me the idea for this post. What do I miss most when I’m without the net? I have to admit I was very busy and didn’t have lot of time anyway.
I know a few people, younger than me, who say they can’t live without Facebook or Twitter etc and having access via their expensive mobile phones means they are almost never without their ‘fix’. My phone is a humble affair and internet browsing is beyond it’s simple design. So, being away from my laptop, what did I really miss the most?
After giving it some thought,I felt that Facebook and Twitter could be left for while and my news fix arrived via BBC News 24. I knew my email would be building up but it was just for a few days and I could catch up. I had little time to write, so researching via Google or Wikipedia wasn’t an issue. No I was fine without all of this for a while.
I realised (with some surprise) that what I really missed was catching up on the blogs I follow and I was itching to post something on my own. So I guess this is becoming a little addictive.
My question to anyone out there is what would you miss the most without the net?
