Last weekend I started my Septuagesima Project as a lead-in to Lent 2020. As some of you may remember, that project was to log my daily prayers into the HabitShare social sharing app so that a record of them could be kept. The app was downloaded and the project began on the Saturday before Septuagesima Sunday and today (though not over yet, more prayers will probably be added before bedtime) marks the seventh day of it.
A .cvs file of my progress can be downloaded and shared at any time. The image above is copied from my file as it stands at 1:30 PM today. And that image is the first of this week’s #SevenTwoProject.
The process of simplifying and downsizing my Internet activity is well underway. And it’s about darned time. This goes hand in hand with the major downsizing of my physical footprint also underway.
In order to make the move to the Philippines this summer, which our vacation there very well may morph into, I certainly won’t want to be burdened with all the stuff that has accumulated over the years around me. Even if the vacation doesn’t become a full time move, if we return to America, we will want to come back to a simpler, more easily manageable lifestyle.
Recently there have been links over on the left sidebar of this website to Roscoe’s Journal and my Micro-blog. Both the personal journal and micro-blog were enjoyable side projects which I shall no longer pursue.
Since I’ve rejoined Twitter, the original micro blog, there’s no reason for me to spend time (and money) on another. And the work I used to do over on Roscoe’s Journal could just as easily be done here on Roscoe’s Story.
There is a photo-oriented #SevenTwoProject recently begun over at Roscoe’s Journal which will end there when I shut down that blogging platform, but will return here at Roscoe’s Story.
This is a change that will save me both time and money, and will simplify my Internet presence. It’s a good thing.
