If there is a hell in this world, I'd imagine it would be a place without internet, no LTE, no email, no web, no blogging, etc. Now, it appears Google's Matt Cutts just went there for the past 30 days or so.
Late December, Matt said his next 30 day challenge would be to take a break from internet for a full week and then limit his time with emails, social networks, news sites and so forth for the whole month.
It seems he was successful. He has no blog posts, no Tweets, no Google+ posts and has not sent me an email the whole month.
I find it crazy but hey, I guess it was a challenge he needed to beat.
A few more days and I suspect Matt will be back online.
Folks are already asking about him and want him to spend more time with the webmaster community in 2013, not less.
