One Week to Social Media Shutdown

Yep, just one week until May 1, when I turn off my social media sites and concentrate on work, home and friends. I am really looking forward to it, as I hope to get caught up on a few things I haven't had time for until now.

This is my typical day:

Wake up - get coffee
Go to Google+ and post daily thread on the writing community. (5 minutes)
Go to Pinterest and YouTube and find interesting things to post to other communities. (1 hour - or more if I get caught up looking at things on those sites)
Check Email (notice social networking comes BEFORE checking emails)
Check the News sites and share interesting finds.
Get second cup of coffee & breakfast
Check new posts in the stream on G+, comment and share. (another hour)
Watch one t.v. show and relax while eating my breakfast (I may cut out t.v. too -- haven't decided yet)
Go to all my writing sites, check in and start to work

During the day, I get notifications from G+ and email, which I have to check.
I usually check into G+ at least a few times a day during break times, instead of doing things I need to be doing here.
At night, I spend a couple of hours on G+  and Pinterest, and check into the few remaining friends I have on FB.

I figure in a normal day, I spend 3-4 hours on social networking sites. That's time I could spend working or decluttering. I'm hoping that by not going to these sites at all, I can get more done and make more money. We'll see.

I WILL be posting to my blogs, but not sharing (DUH!), so if you want to keep up, you need to subscribe to new posts. I will keep you informed on my progress, or lack of, without social media.

I can do this. It's only a month. I keep telling myself that.
