28 jul

This tuesday onwards I won’t be using internet or a phone for 10 days.

Before digital detox.

What I will do during this digital detox:

  • I´ll go to friends without knowing if they’re home and if they feel like seeing me. I don’t know about your country but in the Netherlands this is quite unusual.
  • I´ll write an article by hand for my regular work at Filosofie Magazine. I will ask a friend to type my handwritten article and I’ll go by the office, something I never do as a freelancer, to hand it in.
  •  I´ll have to find other ways of entertaining myself, as I might say that internet is about 50% 90% of my entertainment.
  • I´ll go by a friend for her birthday instead of leaving her a Facebook message.
What about Wilma me

After digital detox (without the shoes :-))

 

What will be most difficult:

I think I will struggle most with being bored, feeling lonely, and being frustrated that I can’t look up ANY kind of information (Oh right! A library! I will rent a CD to check who J.J. Cale was again).

But I might also feel calmer, more connected to people, I might be getting more fresh air and have less tired eyes..Let´s see.

 

 

 

How will you know what happens in the 10 days?

What about Wilma Hermien Lankhorst

Hermien

Well, my team will tell you! I have 3 guest writers: Hermien, Gent and Merijn. They have made What about Wilma as awesome as it is and they are one of the greatest people on the planet.

Merijn

Merijn

During the 10 days I´ll have meetings with all 3 guest writers and they tell you what’s going on by writing a post for this blog.

I won’t be on Twitter, but I’ll ask people that I meet to write a Tweet about the latest news.

And: if you manage to take a picture of me during the 10 days, you can send it to info@whataboutwilma.com and it will be posted here as well.

2 days to go..until that time I´m probably online permanently to make sure I´m digitally toxified enough.
