This is early for me, isn’t it? It’s coming up to 06:35, and I’m sat in bed, writing this on my iPad. I need to have a shower reasonably soon though…
I would say that I have more “internet friends” than the average teenager. Then again, I’d say that I’m not alone in that assumption when in the Bloggosphere, because most of us do, I guess. However creepy it sounds, I’d consider most of you guys my ‘Internet friends’, because you meet my criteria of what friends should be:
Happy to advise
Always there [online in this case].
I wonder if you feel similarly, about your number of ‘Internet friends’ in comparison to most teenagers, or even most people. I’m sure that if school, or even my parents found out just one of my ‘Internet friends’ [OK, we’re stopping with the quotes now; they’re annoying], then they’d flip and probably take my phone, iPad, laptop etc away. As adults, they automatically assume that everyone and anyone on the Internet is a pervert, or a murderer, trying to find their next victim. I’m not dismissing this at all; there are people like this. But hardly any; not as many as adults would have us believe.
How cool would it be, if one of us said on our blogs “I’m going to be in” [insert city name here] “on” [insert date here] “and we could all meet up!” Imagine if it was on a beach in Brighton, because that is my favourite city. Bloggers beach party – that is genuinely the dream…
I would love to meet each and every one of you guys, to thank you for reading, liking, commenting and following. And then, we’d have fish and chips on the beach ’cause British, and we would have a donkey ride on the beach and go shopping in The Lanes… Just imagine this group of bloggers walking around? What a scene…
Anyway, what I’m saying Internet friends are just as good as everyday real-life friends. They’re just as real, and just as genuine, they’re just a little further away [usually].
