I have no Internet

Last Update: July 06, 2021

My goodness,

What do you do when you can't work online for almost a day?

I felt guilty and lost, especially since I chose to have an "easy day at the office" yesterday. I felt that my hands were tied (crossed) like the above picture of a man.

Isn't it amazing how we tend to totally rely on technology, the speed of communication today and when suddenly we don't have it - we feel totally lost and panic can set in.

Well, I achieved a lot doing chores around the house that needed doing and the guilt and the feeling of being lost soon dissipated.

Finally I am back online tonight and writing this short post. Back on track and there's work to do.

Who else has had a similar experience?

Thank you for dropping by. Best wishes to you all.

Hi Helen

Very frustrating ... As a volunteer for my wife’s care business I often find myself without internet, and often iPhone only.

So I found software solutions to be able to write offline, on phone or pc, that automatically syncs with a web solution when I go online.

So when online I focus on research for ideas, posting, refining SEO and handling emails.

I’ve been practising offline writing habits for a while now and find the internet something of a distraction at times when I am trying to focus on writing!

Dropping that connection can be a Chance to push pause and reset. Always good to get back online. A go to can be using your phone and creating a hot spot with it. You will be pleased to get back online Helen.

And we wonder why our kids spend so much. Time online. Climb a tree, go fishing, stay in bed peace out for a day. Only one life.
