>Internet Friends

Found this in an old post of a blog I’m checking out:

“If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal. There are too many to list; you know who you are.”

And from a reply to that post:

“……….But you know, everyone can’t live right next to me. Kindred spirits are friends no matter where they live geographically. The internets are just another way to bring us together.”

Having met one of my closest (in real life) friends through the internet, and one or two really special people who are/were strictly internet friends, I can say that having the internet has made my life that much richer and more fun. It also lets me keep in touch with people I love in real life, but who don’t live close enough for day-to-day interaction. What do you think, readers? Has the internet enriched your life, or no?

  1. My life is that much richer because of the internet. There are several people whose presence in my life is only online but I cannot bear to think of a life without their presence. South Africa still had a lot of broadband issues, I guess our government believe we have far more pressing issues like poverty etc, but I personally believe if you equip people with the right skills and arm them with the power of the internet, the boundaries of poverty are pushed backwards. But that’s just me, I think that would make for a good blog post, thank you for jogging my memory through your blog.
