As a columnist on HipHopGivesBack.org (I have a regular column entitled This Woman’s Work- Thoughts & Randomness From An Insightful Chick), I write about causes, problems, solutions, and other important topics which affect the community and the world around us. During this week’s column, I chose to address “my little problem with the Internet”. I want to explore this issue of mine in further detail on my personal blog, but I believe this entry will give you a bird’s eye view into the situation I have found myself in. It’s gotten better…but I’ve got a ways to go.
Recently, I treated myself to an Internet hiatus for almost a month. For three and a half weeks, I limited my Internet usage to just work and business related items. No Twitter, Facebook, or any other social networking sites I frequented. I focused on my life, my children, my career, and getting in touch with my friends and family by communicating the traditional means including the phone, face-to-face visits, and letters sent in the mail (REALLY). I learned a lot about myself during this time. I began to understand that like with anything, the Internet can become an addiction, and if you don’t keep it in check, it can begin to run your life.
