Internet Friendship

Bonus Feature: This is a picture of my grandson, Theodore. At five months old, he already knows the difference between a real football and a soccer ball. He has made his choice, although it pains his father who was, I am told, quite the “midfielder” back in his day.. This picture was taken last Saturday as Theodore napped while watching college football. (It was not a staged photo).

Now, on to our main topic of the evening.

Internet friendships work. They are created by bonds that are as strong, if not stronger than real life. These are not people you are judging by looks, by money, by status. These are people you’ve met because their personalities, their likes, their interests, their standpoints, their viewpoints and the talents that people in their “real lives” never appreciate.     (thanks to mrsz-myhappyplace)

Many of my old friends are absent from my life, for whatever reason.  My internet friends are still around, commenting on my stories and sharing theirs. After almost 12 years of regular blogging, I seem to have more in common with some people I have never met, or met only because of blogging.

I’m fine with that, as long as my dogs don’t start to ignore me. (fat chance)

    What a cutie your grandson is!

    Through the years I have developed online relationships with bloggers…feeling such a strong connection through their writing/sharing. Those relationships are a blessing to me.

    It has also been hard when writers just disappear, and you have no way of knowing what happened to them.

    Two of those bloggers passed away, and I miss them. But there are others that have left no trace. I miss them also, and pray for all of them!
