I have only recently started blogging full out again. I've been offline more than I'm online for the past few weeks. We are doing some rearranging, building and cleaning in this household.

Please know that if I haven't commented on your blog in a while that it is not because I'm being anti-social. I'm just rearranging my priorities. My family and our home are first and this computer is going to run a distant last.

I urge all of my fellow computer lovers to try an experiment. Stay offline for a full day or maybe even two. Check email and blogs after the kids go to bed. Play with your kids, your family, and rediscover your lover. Somewhere along the line we computer enthusiasts tend to forget how much fun and laughter we are missing while our butts are glued to the computer chair. :o)

Great advice!

Totally agree and I think that most bloggers understand when our fellow bloggers need a break and thus get behind in this crazy fast blogging world! Good for you for taking a break!!!

I have an award for you at my place. No pressure for you to post. Just want you to know I enjoy your blog!

I agree to take time for your family, I blog during my lunch breaks and when my kid are in bed and my wife is away at work. I always use my blog time when I have alone time, would rather spend time with my wife and kids first.

So true, we really do have to watch we don't spend more time with our online friends than we do with our own family!

I try to just go online after kids have gone to bed and house is cleaned, but sometimes can be tempted to just sit at the computer for '5 minutes' in the day, which I normally then regret as that tends to turn into an hour or more!
