40 Days and 40 Nights of Virtual Solitude

Today starts the first day of Lent. Usually, Christians, regardless of denomination, performs some sort of tradition in order to remember how Jesus Christ spent his last 40 days before he was sentenced to be nailed on the cross. Some Christians would like to do it by abstaining the thing they love and would see it as an act of sacrifice in memory of what Christ did on the cross.

So, I'm doing my own version. As most of my friends know (and I hope you have the slightest idea) that I am a social media marketing manager and I have been doing it for the last two years of my life. I have always been connected and I feel incomplete if I don't update my social networking accounts. This year, I decided to partake the tradition of giving up something I love to do for 40 days (and nights) - my Facebook and Twitter account.

My virtual version of abstinence will be documented in my Tumblr account (since it's easier to post quick updates there than here). And today, I posted my announcement at my Facebook and Twitter account that I will no longer be updating it for the next 40 days.

There's only one rule in this feat: DO NOT UPDATE FACEBOOK OR TWITTER period.

So help me God I can do this.

40 Days of Solitude - Day 1
