Everything You Need to Know.
You may have noticed that I’ve been a little absent here lately. My blogging disappearance can partly be explained by the flu that loudly reminded me of the importance of remembering to get the flu shot. I’m also still recovering from three crazy months leading up to the end of the year that included nearly daily Twitter parties among other professional obligations. And of course, there is my conscious decision to seek a little moderation, the kind of tempered behavior that laughs in the face of daily blog posts.

Picture me knocking on wood and throwing salt over my shoulder right now.
Even though I haven’t been blogging about writing a book, I have actually been writing it. And it turns out that these things take time (who knew?) and concentration (you don’t say!). So with a final deadline looming, I decided to step up my game and take a Facebook break last week.

But I decided that was not enough and actually logged out of Facebook after posting this:
Then I clicked on Log Out. For real.
I stayed off of Facebook completely for the few days it took me to finish writing the final chapters of the book, and upon finishing ran as fast as I could to log back in. But in those few days I learned some interesting things:
So tell me…could you log out of Facebook for a few days? A week? Longer?
