It's official: The internet is fantastic. I've never been one for new technology. My TV had shown State of the Union Addresses from about 10 different presidents, but I never noticed it was old until my brother bought me a new one. That's when I finally realized everything I was missing with my tiny, dark screen and lousy sound quality.
I also never expected to appreciate a computer so much - until I started using one, of course. Now I can't imagine how people ever wrote books on typewriters because word processing is so easy and convenient. I also love having all my music stored and available at the touch of a key.
I've been using the internet for awhile to send emails and surf for information, but it wasn't until recently that I started using it to help stay in touch with my clients and promote my business. Now I wonder why I waited so long!
With my website, Twitter, Facebook, and blog up and running, I'm able to communicate with both new and existing clients as well as people who I had lost touch with. I had been worried about leaving the psychic line I used to work at because I didn't want those clients to feel like I'd abandoned them. Turns out, some of them found me through my online presence. It's so good to hear from them and have a chance to catch up with what they've been doing.
Another added bonus of online networking is that I'm hearing from some former clients and friends of my mother's. It's been many years since she had to stop working due to health problems, but she left a lasting impression on the people she touched. They remember her fondly and are writing to tell me how much she meant to them.
So I love the internet and how it's allowing me to stay connected with the people I care about, as well as helping to forge connections with new people.
Many thanks to those of you who get in touch with me everyday. Blessings to you all!
