Building Bridges Between All of Us

When I first started out in social media as a writer I did not know what to expect. I was unsure of etiquette, how to put myself across. I was unsure of the responses I would get and how I would respond.

What I wondered about the most was meeting other writers on social media.

I have met many writers. I wrote this post because I want to say I am grateful for their help and understanding. Other types of people have given me interesting insight on what and how I write as well and I am thankful for that. I always aim to give people who read my posts a pleasant experience. I hope that I do.

In my experience writers I meet on social media are very understanding. In the words of one blogger who is a follower of mine writers should help each other and I know that we do.

I remember that one day something very serious had happened and once again it looked like my world was on teetering on the edge of disaster, just as I had finally got my act together and was content. I was on social media and I had a conversation with a follower that night. The words she said to me made so much sense to me. To be honest it was almost magical because I had been in the same place before but had never been beyond it. Her kind words gave me insight and I went on to deal with the problem successfully. Thank you dear follower.

I know some talk of the dangers of social media. They say social media is alienating people. Instead of joining a group, hobby or sport to meet people some chose to communicate on-line. That is something to consider.

On social media people from all backgrounds, ages and countries talk to each other. I`m sitting in front of my PC or have my mobile in my hand, press an icon and suddenly I am talking to people in America, Britain and other faraway places yet we are all connected by the internet and social media.  Isn`t that incredible when you really think about it?
