Lately I've been seeing a lot of articles and YouTube videos on the downside of all the social media technology. Some of them are pretty smart and point out good truth; that maybe social media is anything but. We're so busy chatting on our phones, or taking and sending photos, we don't talk to friends and family sitting in the same room and miss the moments we're in right now.
Take my blog for instance. I'd like to think it's a nice place to visit, the quilting and sewing are fun and the day trips to the coast or the redwood paths near our home add beauty and interest.
But what it doesn't share is the full-view-of-life. Work is a total bear, family members suffer one illness after another, there's worry about finances, possible loss of a job, and on-going health issues. Generally you won't hear much about these things here. I figure we all struggle with these situations and more.
One day, completely by chance, I met one of my readers. She told me she'd found my blog by accident while Goggling a quilt pattern. She said she kept coming back because the posts were full of creativity, beauty and nature, like a mini-vacation.
Wow. I'd fulfilled a goal I hadn't realized I'd set. Thank you reader.
