CONNECT FOR FUN
Connect is the word prompt for #FiveMinuteFriday this week. It’s the first Five Minute Friday linkup for 2017, and anyone is welcome to participate. We write for five minutes whatever comes to mind about the prompt. It’s meant to be a fun exercise. Check out this link at Kate Motaung’s place to find out all about it. Every week we connect for fun.
MANY WAYS TO CONNECT FOR FUN
One of my favorite things to do is connect with people. There are so many ways to do this online and in person. Years ago when I first heard people talking about email, I didn’t even know what it was! Now I think nothing of sending an email, but more often than not I communicate through instant messaging. My, how times have changed.
I remember some computer program my dad had years ago that allowed us to connect with someone else and actually watch the words appear on the screen as they typed them. I have no idea what that was but we sure enjoyed it.
Connecting with family is something I love. We have four daughters, three sons and 13 grandchildren. Actually, there are 14, but that one hasn’t made it’s appearance yet. It’s due sometime this month. We had everyone here for Christmas. What a treat to connect with them all together! Noisy, but fun.
Facebook has been another great way for me to re-connect with people I knew years ago in different places where we have lived. It’s been fun to see where they are now and how things have changed.
My blog has been another way for me to connect with others. During the October #write31days I met some new friends. We found that we had a lot in common and now we communicate often during the week. It’s been a lot of fun to find people who I call “kindred spirits” like Anne of Green Gables.
How do you make connections with others? What are some of your favorite ways to interact?
