When to Cut Back on Web Habits.

by Jamie Sanford on April 8, 2009

This is one in a series of posts pulled from Chris Brogan’s “100 blog topics I hope YOU write.” (#54)

When to cut back on web habits:

  • when you start referring to family members as @theirtwittername
  • when you start thinking about what hashtags would be applicable to live conversations
  • when you don’t remember the last time you spent a day free from internet access
  • when you stay up too late/ignore other responsibilities because you are obsessed with reviewing everything in your feed reader

I also asked this question on Twitter: What makes you realize you need to step away from the computer/internet for a while?

  • From BlankStareKY: i can’t help you — i’m so into the internet right now i’m almost the lawnmower man. that’s a reference only cool people get.
  • From BlankStareKY: OH! i have one! if you’re tweeting references to The Lawnmower Man then maybe you need to step away for a while. that counts.
  • From SparklingAmber: when I check my feeds and there is nothing, because I just read them all a few minutes ago, and nobody has blogged yet.. time!
  • From computerguyz: My eyes begin to cross each other

Thanks to everyone who participated in my mini-poll.  Anyone else with thoughts on this topic?
