a conversation about journalspace
Em came home from school yesterday, exclaiming "Oh my God! I was filling out forms today and had to give my social teacher your email."
I was sitting at the kitchen table with my laptop open, Jamie was making something to drink by the fridge, having come over to finish packing.
"When she looked at it, she said 'Becomingkate?' and I said 'yeah' and she said 'oh my God I used to follow her on journalspace!'"
I looked up over my reading glasses. "Journalspace?! What did you say?" I asked.
"Nothing! I just looked at her like this. Oookayyy."
"I didn't know there was anyone from here that followed me at JS," I said, surprised.
Jamie walked over. "Me either!! Small world, hey?"
Indeed! I have so many happy memories of journalspace. There were so many people whose lives I really cared about, and so many people that followed my posts from the time I'd first met Bill. Some of the very first I remember meeting was Silent Whisper, Wizardress, Tammy and Kittywoman.
Remember Smotlock? He was definitely one of a kind, love him or hate him.
I really enjoyed photography blogs, or blogs with the writer pouring out their hearts, or sharing their stories of every day life with family and friends. It's true that at the end of the day, I would much rather leave a nice, encouraging comment than a contrary one, but most of the time my comments were like a friendly wave as I weaved through link after link of friends posts.
Maybe now that I have weekends off, I can keep up with the awesome friends I have here and at various other blogsites.
Have a good weekend.
