Facebook provides a wonderful forum for contacting old friends and making new ones. Last year I attended my
class reunion in California, an event they now hold annually, because 5 or 10 years is too long to wait, to see the people who helped make you who you are today.
I love how so many folks are able to travel around the world and share their experiences and pictures on FB for all of us to admire. I really do enjoy seeing the sites through their eyes and adding places to my bucket list of travel adventures I hope to experience one day. Traveling isn’t exactly practical for us during this phase of our lives when work is prevalent during the summer months and we are still in a growth phase. With no travel pictures to share, we started posting our “vacation” pics, such as this shed we built a few summers ago. It’s how we spend our free time, so we figured, why not? It was fun to get feedback from friends during the different stages of construction and kept us motivated and on task.
In the past year or so, FB has provided an interactive home for me to explore a subject matter near and dear to my heart, something that I am calling The Pocket Farmer. It is equal parts sharing and learning, about the environment, farming, gardening and being a good citizen. When I see that more than 2,800 like minded people are sharing the ride with me, it makes me proud to be participating in such a worthwhile
endeavor. The energy and enthusiasm of the FB community is what keeps this Pocket Farmer out in the trenches every day and moving our lives into the sustainable direction that we are headed. A truly heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you for your time and contributions! I continue to learn from you every day and could not have accomplished as much or been as successful, without your guidance. The future looks bright, from here!
With technology being such a big part of our lives, I
just wanted to take a moment to illustrate how it has impacted my life, in general, but specifically how Facebook has allowed me to grow and share with others. I am able to keep in touch with my girls who are grown and away to college. I can watch the children of my far away friends grow and establish families of their own. I can research, watch silly videos, listen and commiserate with someone who is having
a difficult time. It brings me joy every day. So my question for you today is: How has Facebook changed
your life? I look forward to hearing your responses! :)
