SPAR! Habit Building App Review

Hello, Interwebs! Well, if you read my recent post about my recap of “No Internet Month 2019”, you may have noticed me mention a new app I am trying out called SPAR!  My financially savvy friend, who I’ll call MR, introduced me to it.

No Internet Month* is over. How was it?

A person using both a laptop and a phone to look at the internet.
Double-fisting the internet. This could be me pre-April.

As you may have read in my previous blog posts, I tried a “no internet month” for April, 2019 (with exceptions). Overall, I will say it was a very positive experience. You can read some of my day by day commentary here.

Day 1.

So far, I’ve already been harassed by my coworker about no internet month, since I’m using the internet for work purposes (email, file sharing, etc). Well that’s an exception of course. I can’t NOT do my job. I felt I was pretty clear No Internet Graphicthere were exceptions when I posted on social media? haha. Anyway, It’s been not so bad this morning. I’m getting stuff done.
