I used to be a hermit
Friday, November 16, 2012
Retirement can do that to you, although what I really mean is that I was an online hermit. I was online everyday and until recently very few people knew about it. I would read and learn in all areas of life including SparkPeople. After nearly 3 years, I had one spark friend – the guy whose job it is to be friends with me.
Then on Sept 11th South Fork gave me a Goodie. On Sept 17th MJZHERE became my first real friend. That day I found my voice and wrote my first blog.
Over the last 2 months I’ve realized how much easier and fun this journey is “with a little help from my friends.” So if you have been reading my blog, thank you so much. Sometimes I’ve been unable to comment to all of you individually, but I want you to know I really appreciate it. Often a comment or question will suggest to me something else that I want to investigate or write about. Your blogs and posts have led me to new sources of information and a wide range of experiences.
I hope that others will realize sooner than I did the benefits of being active on SP. Join a team and have company on your journey.
