I’ve removed Twitter and Google Plus apps from my iPhone. I haven’t deleted the accounts, I just made it harder to look at them. I’m trying a social experiment for November. Here are my guidelines:
1. No social networks
2. No blogs
3. Comments on my blog disabled
4. I blog at least once a week
5. No gaming news sites
I will blog about what comes to my mind untainted from the rest of the Internet. I will lop off the beasts head and wait to see if I dies or grows back twice as ugly. It will be an experience no demi-god (like me), can pass up. I got to battle!
Before I started blogging, using social networks like a meth addict, and reading hundreds of blogs a day, I just played games I thought were interesting. Back then I played WoW for years not caring about other games. Is ignorance bliss? In a way. At least ignorance was better on my wallet.
I enjoy all the people I’ve met over the years through blogging and social networks. I’ll miss interacting with them for the short time. I’ll be back to tell them about my colon adventures soon enough. I just need some time to see if I feel different detached from the masses. See if I get that “feeling” back. I’m not exactly sure what that feeling is though. I’m sure it’s not as sensual as a pee boner in the morning. Yeah I know, that is not very sensual, but it is hard as a fossilized crayon.
I might be grasping at an impossible emotional state of mind only man that has undergone years of spiritual training can achieve, but I’m willing to try. I’ll never know unless I try, right?
When I open up the comments on my blog after the month I will ask one simple question:
What are you playing?
With that I’ll see what I missed and if I really care I missed it.
Note: You can comment on this post if you want. You can give me ideas or talk about what game you’re playing right now. I’m playing Wow and GW2 right now and I’m enjoying them both. I’ll have to see what I think come December 1.
