The Internet Diet

My Internet connection was down for a few hours today. During the outage, I realized just how much of a surfing rut I’ve gotten into. Check Facebook, check Google+, surf Gearslutz, watch some YouTube, wash, rinse, repeat.

This is eating into the time I would use to do other, more productive, more rewarding things. I realized I’m using the Internet more as a procrastination device than anything. So I’m going to work at spending less time online with the following exceptions:

  • Netflix
  • Actual reference / research
  • Software updates
  • Soundcloud
  • Daily email check
  • This blog

I may still hit the social media sites occasionally, but I’m going to try and keep it limited to promoting the Soundcloud postings.
