I can sympathize with Josh – taking time off from full-time blogging is hard. Doing work as an online political operative means being connected all the time. There are multiple email accounts I read religiously (I read all my emails, including from list serves, to the best of my ability. It’s something of a neurosis.). I maintain multiple blogs. This past week when I was in Puerto Rico, I was able to really unplug for the first time in about four years. I shut off my email list traffic, I didn’t blog, I didn’t obsess over work emails. And it felt great.
I’m getting back up to speed today, but it’s good to know that I can unplug when I really, really try.
