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.
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?
