When I’m indoors, I love a cuppa and a chat.
When I meet a fellow author at the reservoir, we walk and talk…the best of both worlds.
Socialising on the internet was as alien to me as walking into a butcher’s shop to buy a piece of meat…I’ve been vegetarian for over 25 years so have no frame of reference.
But today, I want to send a big ‘thank you’ to Tim Berners-Lee because socialising and interacting on the internet is amazing!
A few weeks back, I was having a bad day. A comment by a fellow author who I’d met a couple of months previously led to us messaging for twenty minutes. We shared, really shared and I knew, she was there for me.
A few days ago I joined a thread on an author group and learned so much about the lives, thoughts and feelings of two fellow authors….one in South Africa and the other in America….to be able to hold a three way conversation across the world is awesome!
Over the past months I’ve run ***The Amazing Karmic Sharefest*** and ***The BOB Bonanza*** sharing events on my Facebook page. I’ve met amazing, interesting and inspiring people but for me, the very best part is that it felt like I had invited them home, made them a brew and then left them to chat and share.
I love being out in all weathers and I love having friends round for a cuppa but I’m also loving the friends I’m making on Facebook. I love meeting new people and learning new things and this medium enables me to do that in a way I could never have dreamed of.
I know I’m old fashioned and suffer from techno fear but I’m learning and if I achieve nothing else from my time on Facebook, I’ve made some wonderful friends.
