In(ternet)dependence

I had planned to write a really great post yesterday for all my new Blog Party friends. Instead, I spent the day Internet-free thanks to a wind and rain storm Saturday that knocked out my phone service and, therefore, my DSL connection. The good news is I got plenty of other stuff done yesterday. While not having an Internet connection kept me from doing some market research, completing some screen shots for documentation I've been working on, and sending out some important emails, it was amazing how much writing I got done when I didn't have the distraction of email and web surfing. I really need to practice self-control where the Internet is concerned. I'm much more productive that way.

Fortunately (or not, depending on how I look at it), things seemed to be working OK this morning before I left for work. I still don't have a dial tone, but my DSL was working. Weird, but I'm not going to question the Internet gods. We'll see what's going on when I get home tonight.

In the mean time, if you're new around here and want to get to know me better, why not check out some of my favorite posts from the past?

Thanks for stopping by!

Internet problems really stink! I enjoyed visiting your blog. I also enjoy writing, and am trying to become more disciplined about it. Come see me when you get a moment!

I find that I am more productive with pen and paper too. Even if nothing seems to flow right with out the keyboard, I manage to get all my thoughts down and refine on the computer.

You're right. It's so easy to get distracted on the internet.

cindy swanson - I'll be by soon!

cindyptn - I find that I use no computer access as an excuse not to write. I should get used to using pen and paper a little more often! Then I wouldn't have to worry so much about internet distractions...
