I Heart The Internet

Friday, March 23, 2007

Over the past year, I've had some really cool things happen because of blogging, things that would not have been possible through simply keeping a journal in the days pre-internet:

  • I have been able to keep those friends and family that are interested in touch with our daily lives in this somewhat "removed" location.
  • I have developed closer relationships with existing friends and family that keep blogs of their own.
  • I have made some great new friends and acquaintances from around the world.
  • I have found some wonderful sources of on-line news, unbiased by the money controlling major media corporations.
  • I "met" successful Christian singer-songwriter Shaun Groves through his blog, exchanging a few words of on-line conversation.
  • I got an e-mail from Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, knit-blogger and published knitting author extraordinaire, after asking her a question about a knitting dilemma. (I got to ask a famous knitter for help! How cool is that?)
Now, I get to add one more thing to the list of coolnesses. Yesterday, after using a few lyrics from her song in my post, one of the co-writers of Even If My Heart Would Break ACTUALLY LEFT A COMMENT ON MY BLOG!!

How COOL is that?!!

So...What is the coolest thing that the internet and/or blogging has allowed to happen in your life?

  1. Well, lately I've been obsessed with Facebook. In case you haven't heard of it, facebook is a profile you can create of yourself that you can comment on and post pictures on and add friends on. It's an awesome way to communicate with your friends all over, and it's less time and committment than a blog. Anyways, because of facebook, my cousin Sera, whom I haven't seen for almost 10 years, found me and we've been catching up. Cool hey!

  2. That IS pretty cool! I'll have to check it out!

  3. Would this be my sister-in-law Ang? If so, why have I not heard of this Sera? Is she on your dad's side of the family?

  4. Yep, she's aunty Lisa's daughter, but we never see them anymore.

  5. Facebook sounds interesting. I'm on my way!

    I think the best experiences I've had are just getting to know people around the world that I would never have the pleasure of bumping into otherwise. Too cool.
