Attempting a Major Challenge...

Update: I am going to start this challenge June 28-July 4th. Ending on my Anniversary, how sweet, lol. Email me if you want to be a guest blogger. If you've already contacted me about it, just send me you post anytime before June 28th! The topic is "One thing I can't live without"!

I am going to go without a cell phone, internet, and television for one whole week! Am I insane? Technology is a way of life! This will be like losing my right hand! Well they are all things on my 101 in 1001 list so I thought I might as well group them all together and get it over with.


What do I hope to gain from the experience? Well to be honest, I'm not sure. Some more quality time with my family? Of course. A more active lifestyle? Maybe. Or maybe just less dependence on technology. Whatever it will be, this will certainly be a challenge.

I am currently looking for some guest bloggers to keep my readers entertained while I'm on my technology vacation. If you're interested leave me a comment or email me at Lilbumpkinblog at gmail dot com.

I'm looking to do this either the last week in June or the first week in July. I need some mental preparation for this!

Good luck!! I tried giving up TV for a week..it lasted a day or two haha. I think I would have to do one at a time, not all at once - you are brave!!

I could do a guest blog if you want. I'm not too interesting and I'm not sure what topic you are looking for but let me know!

Are you sure you are up for the challenge?? This is a hard one!! But, we did live without all of these things at some point, so hopefully you will find more family time with you little ones!

I hope I'm up for it, haha! It will definitely be hard, but I think I can do it!

Thank you so much for the volunteers to guest blog! I'm thinking of having the topic "One thing I can't live without". So you would write a post on the one thing you can't live without. If you're still interested send me an email at Lilbumpkinblog@gmail.com

Thanks!

As I said before I would be more than happy to guest blog!

I can't believe you are going technology free for an entire week! I am bet I would get SO much done if I did!

Gretchen said...

Definitely Shelby! Thank you!

If you want to write up the posts then email them to me and I will set it up in advance to post while I am blacked out!
