No more device guilt

I came across this article on People (it was a search result, ok?!) titled “Jennifer Garner: Why I’m Not on Twitter or Instagram” about why Jennifer Garner doesn’t have Twitter or Instagram profiles and one of her reasons is really interesting:

One, I don’t want any more guilt coming from my phone or computer. I have the hardest time answering emails, anyway, so the last thing I want to feel is indebted to my phone or computer. So it’s time.

I know a few people who are tempted to delete their social profiles entirely and just open a post box somewhere. That isn’t really an option for me but I do often feel the need for fewer notifications, things to check and more analogue sanity.

On a related note, Radiohead’s latest publicity move has captured some people’s imaginations:

      That thought occurs to me pretty often!

    You’ve got the blogging part covered so it’s just a point of quitting all the other platforms. 🙂
