Blogging Insights — New Format # 4

Dr Tanya has given her Blogging Insights series a facelift and is now giving us a quote to work on every week.

“Twitter is like a calling card. Facebook is like a phone call. Blogging is like a full-fledged conversation!”

Ah, I really can’t comment on this as I don’t have a twitter or facebook account, nor do I want one.
My social media is my blog (and meeting dogs), and with the to-ing and fro-ing of comments therein,  it is indeed a conversation.
My family are on facebook, and I believe keep in touch that way. Good for them.
I was put off  years ago when someone put an invite to a party out on FB and over 250 people turned up, most of which they didn’t know. I do understand that you can restrict your friends and family, but for all I know, the latter would not keep in touch with me anyway for one reason or another and any other means of communication is rarely forthcoming.
I’m old school, pen, paper, stamp and snail mail. I’ve progressed to email though and keep in touch with a few close friends that way.
There is texting, phone calls, skype and zoom, so other means of contact is available.
The art of true conversation seems to be dead though. TV and computers killed that IMO.
My late FIL loved to have debates, sometimes deliberately taking the opposite corner to me and hear my point of view. We often agreed to differ, each respecting the other’s opinion, but when we agreed on something, we were practically joined at the hip!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
