Connecting


REBLOG:  Don’t miss Audrey’s encouraging post about connecting.

Minnesota Prairie Roots

This quarter-sized token, gifted to me some time ago by my friend Beth Ann, lies on my computer desk.

IF YOU’RE LIKE ME, you find yourself reaching out daily to check on family and friends. Now, more than ever, it seems important to connect via mail, email, text, phone calls or video chatting. I need reassurance that people in my life are OK and know they are loved and supported. Likewise, people have done the same for me. And more.

Face masks crafted by my blogger friend Penny.

Earlier this week I received a package from a Texas blogger. I’ve never met Penny, but we’ve followed each other’s blogs for years and also exchanged emails. Inside the padded envelope I found four cloth face masks. Penny, who is an incredibly kind and loving soul, has been sewing masks for people in her community. And beyond. She also included a lovely…

Connection


Since I am still going to work every day, my family worries about me during this uncertain time.  I do my best to reassure them that we are very careful and being as safe as we can be.  It’s just a skeleton crew at work right now.  I get texts and phone calls now much more often than I have in the past.  I miss my family and my friends.  I’m sure you do too.  Reaching out and communicating is incredibly important right now.  I’m touched and feel loved with each text, email or phone call.  It’s not as good as a hug, but it’s just as important.

Please be sure to take that minute to send a text or make that phone call.  It might just mean the world to the person on the other end.

Thank you for joining me on this journey. ❤ Penny

What’s the Deal With MeWe?


I had a Facebook account a couple of times and have deleted it for one reason or another.  There seems to be more bad things associated with FaceBook than there are good things.

I’ve heard a lot of hype about MeWe.  I opened an account back in March.  Here it is December and I’m still no closer to getting into the groove with it than I was back in March.

Finding information about how to find and connect with others is sparse.  Usually a search of a familiar name will result in zero results.  I have found ONE person I know.  But when I tried to connect, it says that they do not accept connections from those that they do not know.

Frustrating!

I have 3 connections. Three!  These are Groups where I don’t know a soul.  I’m not sure what to DO with these groups!  Should I even bother with this?

What has your experience been with MeWe?

Thoughts?  Suggestions?

* MeWe is supposed to be a social media site “like” FaceBook, except, there are no ads, they don’t track you, or sell your info.
