Vacation = Out of the Cloud

I have a habit of being connected online which at times borders on an addiction. I connect via my iPhone, desktop computer at church and laptop at home or on the road.

Not on vacation. Nicole and I are headed to Estes Park, Colorado tomorrow. From May 8 to May 19, I will not:

  • Boot up my laptop.
  • Use my iPhone in any way other than as a phone.
  • Check my email – @gmail.com or @cor.org

Goodbye Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Google Reader, Remember the Milk, Google Docs, Spark People. For a few days, at least…

I will have a blog post pre-scheduled here for May 18 and I’ll come back online May 19.

Until then, enjoy of the top posts from the last 30 days:

Why I use WordPress.com (1 of 6)

I use WordPress.com to blog because it is free and it is open source. It is also the softward that is used to run all the blogs hosted at cor.org. I switched from Blogger a couple years ago because I wanted a little more of an independent feel and appreciated that WordPress can be used as a simple content management system. In other words, it could be used by any church to start a free, simple and well designed website. I continue to appreciate the innovation from WordPress and steady new updates. Thinking about getting started in WordPress? Check out this video.

What platform do you use to blog and why do you like it?
