The "Computer Guy' took my computer away for three days for repairs.
When the computer came back yesterday afternoon, I found 237 emails in my Gmail account and 134 in my Mweb account. I neeeerly-died!
80% of the emails were from Forums. I didn't realise how many forums I belonged to - six camino forums and the VF forum, two backpacking forums and three writing forums. All of them send emails when someone posts or responds to posts. I also belong to camino groups and other groups on Facebook, all with messages landing up in my email box. No wonder I never have time to do my housework properly!
I decided to use my lessons learned from the camino and downsize, springclean, minimize ... let go! I played eeny-meeny-miny-mo and have left 2 camino forums (Caminosantiago.com and Santiagobis) - both backpacking forums, one writing forum and three Facebook groups.

My name is Sil and I am a camino-aholic: my name is Sil and I am a camino-holic: my name is Sil.......
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Most groups allow you the option of daily digest. This can significantly cut down the number of posts and permits you to take a quick scan. Just a thought............
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.

I am all for downsizing... have been doing it myself ever since I got home from the Camino!! But when you said you have left two forums, I first took it to mean those are the ones you still have..... and I thought.... oh no..... this is sil's parting note.... :shock: then I realised I had misunderstood.... and you are staying here .... I think!!!

I´m afraid dear amiga Sil that the only cure for this addiction is more of the same. At least on the Way we don´t access the internet as much as at home...so.... :)

You are right - or one can live vicariously and follow everyone else's camino.
That is why I became a Forum junkie!
