Yahoo! #EmailLove

Thank you to Yahoo! Mail for sponsoring this post about staying connected. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

Way back when, before the advent of smartphones and Skype - there was good old-fashioned e-mail. 

Yet I think my love affair with e-mail started wayyyyy back.  Like, early-90's college way back.  When you would turn on the computer and see that black background with the blinking curser.

Remember those days? 

I always loved to write.  Long informative e-mails were sent from me to family members and friends.  I was the glue that kept everyone in contact.

And then, once I had children, the e-mailing of pictures became commonplace.  I took a picture a week during each of the boyz' first year.  These were promptly e-mailed to my mom, who hated being 6 hours away from her grandchildren.

This short clip totally reminds me of how I keep in touch with my parents in upstate New York:

I can't even believe that I have been a Yahoo! e-mail user for TEN YEARS NOW!

The mind - it boggles.

What do you love about e-mail?
