The Digital Ripple Effect

One Comment

What happens when you finally hit that submit button?

I’ve been a lurker on the internet ever since good ol’ dial up days.

In my fear of stirring the pot while growing up, I never left comments anywhere or created posts at all, essentially being a digital ghost.

But starting at the beginning of last year, something changed…

I was asked (not demanded) to lean into the uncertainty of both posting comments and posting content online, and the strangest thing happened.

Someone reacted.

A real human on the other side of that dial-up cord.

Normal Internet User

I act terribly old and just never got into the trend of posting every single waking moment of my life to social media, so that usually means I unintentionally ignore most of the opportunities to connect with others online.

But now that I’m experimenting with curating my posts to make an account with content I would love to see, sometimes I drop a nice message to friends I’ve met only once, and sometimes friends I have not made at all.

What happens next is always a happy surprise, because somewhere down the line, our paths cross again…

And it’s not like strangers meeting up for the first time…
