Don’t you just love the possibility of new friendships?
I mean, on any given day, there’s a chance of making a friend. That is pretty darn cool.
Lately I’ve been thinking about how making friends has changed a bit through the years.
Say like, back when my grandparents had young families, I’d guess that they met new people through family members, school, work, neighbors, church, doctors, the store, or maybe the beauty shop.
Most of those opportunities for making friends are still pretty true today. What I’ve noticed lately, is how much technology seems to come into play in the ability to make friends.
When I started this blog in October, I was essentially fulfilling a dream of writing. I had no idea that becoming friends with other bloggers was even a possibility.
It still amazes me that writing via the internet provides a platform for potential friendships to blossom. How cool is that? Pretty amazing. Especially when you consider that not that many years ago it was practically unheard of.
I love the idea of how common interests draw like and like together. Similar to the quilting clubs or women’s church clubs, or book clubs of the past, its almost as if there’s a big writing/ readers club.
On my blog’s Facebook page, I’ve “met” a lot of nice people as well. It’s interesting to consider I may not have met some of you kind folks that read my stories, if I hadn’t started blogging.
