Happy Tiny Bites day!
Happy Tiny Bites day!
Social media seems to be a consistent theme I keep coming back to here. It was one of the first things I wrote about when I started blogging, and I recently wrote about an accidental social media detox I did when we moved. The accidental detox showed me that I need more space between my real life and my digital life (and I fully appreciate the irony of writing that on a blog, on the internet).

Because we were moving from Southern to Northern Ontario, I had no cell phone service for the majority of the trip. Zilch, nada, total dead zone. In fact, on the second day of the drive, most of our trip was through “Unorganized Areas”, areas that are not covered by any municipality, lower-level government or Indian Reserve and have very little to zero population.… Continue reading
For me, it’s almost instinctual, but also like a nervous tick. I manage websites and social media for a living. I’m basically always connected. But I think that’s the case for most people now in our hyper-connected world. We are always ‘on’ or we are expected to be.
