It's time for Favourite Things Friday which is a happy little linky party where you have the opportunity to write a post about something that rocks your socks. We'd love for you to join us. Pick one of your favourite things and spread some happy thoughts around the Blogisphere.
My favourite thing this week is the Internet. I know this has been done by other people but I realised just this week how much I rely on the Internet for almost everything. The Internet has made the world more accessible for all of us. I can buy fabric from another country, try recipes I may never have otherwise made (think butter tarts and about half of what Kirsten posts on her blog ), check out other people's ideas and thoughts and converse with people half a world away where it's still day time when it's dark at my place. I can read the news with the click of a button, surf eBay and buy things I didn't know I needed and learn about just about anything that piques my interest. There is always someone kicking round the Internet doing something because the Internet never sleeps.
I can read about people's adventures, be inspired creatively, and stick beak around seeing how other people live. The Internet has just about everything. It teaches, it inspires and connects us.
The Internet has Blogging. When I started blogging, I had absolutely no idea of the impact blogging was going to have on my life. I've been blessed to become a part of a community where I can pick my friends, share my interests and be inspired by other people's ideas, creativity and lives. I've met some fantastic people who have become real friends either via email , phone or in real life. Every single person I've met has been extraordinary. The Internet has been responsible for pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me try new things. I've drawn strength from the experiences and support of others. I've laughed, I've cried and I've been amazed. I've had so much fun and it's become an integral part of my daily life. I love hanging with you guys.
The Internet gets a lot of negative press but honestly I cant think of one negative thing about it. It's opened up a world of possibilities and wonder for me , and I'm glad you're all sharing the wonder with me.
And as much as I love the Internet I'm not sure why Blogger insists on it being capitalised in print. I just checked and it doesn't make you spell God with a capital letter... what's the deal with that?
