Considering giving up social media for Lent

A friend of mine—who on Twitter goes by the name of @gedrobinson and in real life goes by the name of Ged Robinson— tweeted this earlier today:

One week left on Twitter, deciding giving Twitter, Facebook and alcohol up for Lent. (St Pats excepted of course)

and he got me thinking: what a great idea!

I’m going to give it some thought over the next few days and try to write more about it at the other place.

I certainly would like to spend more time blogging: writing longer, more considered posts rather than the fast-food, 140 character offerings that I spit out daily on Twitter and occasionally Facebook. (Hence the three posts in rapid succession this evening.)

Lots of good stuff to consider.
