I didn't shut down, although that's because I don't need to... I naturally get sick of being on the computer sometimes, but then I also work at a computer 40 hours a week, so it's a lot easier for me to justify unplugging on the weekends.

I think it's important to build in natural unplug time, then you won't need to have Shutdown Day. ;)


Eric — I really enjoyed my Shutdown Day. I felt reconnected to parts of me that I'd been ignoring, usually because I'm always on the computer.

Good suggestion about building in natural unplug time — that's what I'm going to work on putting into my life on a regular basis.


I loved shutting down. In fact I ended up shutting down for an extra three days. It was wonderful. On the actual day I grabbed the camera and went looking for signs of spring, which on that particular day seemed eons away. Just wandering around for hours on my own was absolute bliss.

Hello and welcome!

  • My name is Kristin Gorski. I recently earned my doctorate (EdD) in instructional technology and media. My research focuses on technology and literacies, writing in digital spaces, and how media literacy may support academic literacy (among other incredibly interesting topics). On occasion, I’m also a freelance writer and editor. “Write now is good.” is my personal blog about writing, creativity and inspiration (with healthy doses of technology in relevant places). I started it in blogging's heyday (2006) and still post to it, time permitting.
