The experiment to pause my usage of attention grabber sites is working out quite ok. Not 100% perfect, but I’m satisfied nevertheless.
I only struggle to keep my hands off of Twitter. Sometimes it is just too easy to get lost there. Mostly because of the good people over there.
Facebook and Instagram on the other hand, I don’t miss them much and I only did one or two occasional checks.
I’m going to get strict again and try not to visit any of these sites, but I already reactivated cross-posting to my Twitter again and will check replies.
I subscribed to them using the Twitter integration of NetNewsWire. This is an excellent feature that removes almost all of the distraction capacity of the bird page and reduces tweets to the absolute minimum.
So let’s see how the next week of this journey continues.
