Social Media Vacation

If you're looking for me on the interwebs you might have trouble for awhile. I am taking a much needed vacation from all social media for the entire month of August, and probably up until Labor Day. I'll probably still read some blogs and I'll check email until August 19, when my vacation goes into overdrive (because I'll be on a real vacation) and I don't check the web, email or phone at all for two weeks. There's nothing religious about this - if I get a real hankerin' for some twitter action, I might check in, but I think it's time to resist the urge to be connected and spend that time on my own creative projects. I have a feeling I'll leave FourSquare and LinkedIn for good - neither brings me anything valuable anymore, but I'm quite sure I'll be back to the others soon enough. Why am I bothering to post about this? Because I'm hoping you won't think I've disappeared forever and will come back when I do in a month, and because a few people contact me through social media for work or important personal business and I thought you should know I haven't disappeared, just gone on vacation. Until then....

Brian,
It is healthy to walk away from the table for a while. I walked away for a while myself. I hope to see you again soon I always enjoy your conversation.
