Hey Dear Readers!
It’s the last Sunday of the month tomorrow. You know what that means?
Fone Free Day!
It gives me immense pleasure to tell you all that the Fone Free Day initiative started by me and Deepika from Deepikas Ramblings, has entered it’s 5th month now! Actually it’s the 4th for me and the 5th for her. Last month we were also joined by Jotish Joseph in the initiative. Read about his Fone Free experience here.
Last month, I had to be socially available at all times around the last Sunday of July. Consequently, the no phone thing was impossible to observe. But this time I decided even if I have to physically keep my phone locked away in the cupboard, I will do it! Grrrr!
So here I am, looking forward to a day sans technology (as much as I can help it. I still have to be ‘socially available’ this weekend too).
Should you want to join this initiative, remember to abide by these simple rules –
⇒ To be observed on the Last Sunday of every month.
⇒ No phones, no social media (not even on tabs, desktops, or any other device).
⇒ Phone allowed only for – some calls (keep them short, to the point, important ones only). No texting, emailing, whatsapping or snapchatting, or whatever. Work related emails or messages are allowed, but try to minimize usage.
⇒ Try to get other’s involved ( through word of mouth, or do it a day before).
⇒ Put the above logo on your blog the day after the Fone Free Day and faithfully record how your day was spent.
⇒ Next month, before the Last Sunday, create a post with this same logo and tell other people to get involved.
⇒ Promote Fone Free Day on social media sites on other days only, and use the hashtag #fonefreeday for the promotion.
You do not have to link my or Deepika’s name to your blog posts about this initiative. We are not asking for credit. We are only asking for observance – honest observance.
IT’S JUST ONE DAY!
Remember, ONE day of no phones. I promise you’ll suddenly find so much free time you’ll wonder why you’ve been wasting time on that phone anyway.
So I’m not going to be available on any social media site, including WP after midnight tonight. If you have an emergency, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I may answer depending on your emergency 😛 Sorry!
Also, please remember to enter your lines for the <Your Line Goes Here> Contest and vote for your favorite lines. To enter the contest please click on this link. The contest ends tonight at 11.59 P.M. The winner will be declared on the coming Monday.
