Every year, I like to slow down my technology usage for a few weeks. I don't think as human beings we were meant to be immersed in the huge quantity of digital information that we are today. From the moment I am awake to the moment I go to bed, my body is being loaded information. The email, cell phone, and the Internet seem to have a never ending presence in the lives of us IT folks. I don't have much control with removing technology from my work day, but I do have options in my personal life. It's time for me to unplug and officially begin my annual Technology Break.
As I have done each and every year, I'm taking a break from technology. From now through August, I'll be posting and managing the site a little less. I won't be abandoning CMS Report, but you will be seeing me a little less. My slogan for Tech Break 2009 is Blog less, Relax more.
To be honest, taking a break away from CMS Report is going to be difficult for me. I'm extremely excited with the new look and the new attitude we've found for CMSReport.com. I have additional changes planned for this site and I think most everyone will continue to like the new direction we're taking. However, for an IT guy like me, putting those changes on hold for a few weeks is going to be a challenge. In some ways, I can't wait until August gets here so I can clear the ticket for the site redesign.
As always, I appreciate help in any articles submitted to CMSReport.com. If you want to really help out, create an account today and start contributing your own CMS stories. I'll be checking email now and then for submitted posts so we make sure you're not waiting too long to see your story published. Have a good rest of July!
