I woke up this morning in awe of the power of websites.
E-Bay allows me to get rid of things I no longer need. I sold items yesterday to people in Illinois and Tennessee whom I have never met, but who left positive feedback in the hope of receiving reciprocal feedback. These people and I are essentially strangers, yet we’re transacting and interacting with each other.
I checked on Twitter today and reached out to two individuals I know only through the website. We have tweeted back and forth in the past. I love the opportunity that Twitter provides to learn from others.
Checking daily visitors to this blog helps to feed my love of numbers. I’ll check the site to see what posts were visited and what websites have linked to my blog.
I check the online servers for my email accounts, which keep me connected to my personal and business relationships. Often times there are links within those emails to updated content on websites that I frequent.
And what’s maybe most amazing of all, I do all this within the first 30 minutes of my day.
I don’t want to spend the whole day online, I have other things to do, but I remain in awe of the power of websites to affect the routines of our lives.
