As anyone who follows my blog regularly will know (hello! *waves madly*) I’ve decided to take a media break. A whole 7 days without any media in my life, or very little anyway. Needless to say I’ve been full of anticipation about this, both in a good way and a not so good way.
I know I can last a week without Twitter and Facebook, I do it every time I go on holiday. I don’t use my phone for social media and hardly look at it most of the time anyway so I have experience of being Twitter-free.
