Social Networking: The Joys of Being A Microcelebrity

For you night owls...

I haven't done much in the last four days on Active Rain, and yesterday I started receiving emails to my AR home page asking if everything is all right.

It is.  Thanks for asking!  Too much work, and not enough time to get it all done...

Your emails made me reflect about the concrete relationships that come about as a result of social networking, and what a joy it is to know that I'm missed by friends I have yet to meet. 

That thought woke me up.  (I try to listen to things that wake me up.)

'Nuff said.  It's four in the morning, and I have to go back to bed.

Mike, that's really a great thing.  I guess it's like you better blog or call or your friends will be wondering if you are OK?

Mike- Amazing how attached we can get to people we have never met in person, although it feels we all know each other well doesn't it?!

Morning Mike!

Love the Owl!

Then again I've always been partial to things that live in barns.

"Microcelebrity!" I love it. And the owl is so cute--there is a resemblance.

Mike, Micro-celebrity status is to be enjoyed. Even at 4 am. :) Kate

Thanks; I'm enjoying!


The resemblance may have to do with the eyes being at half-mast.


My mom always said "Shut the door.  Do you live in a barn?"  LOL


Yes it is!


Thanks for adding me as a friend on Facebook.  We do come to know each other well in cyberspace through social networking, and that's been good for business!


Thanks!  See you on your blog.


Yes it is; thanks for being the first to comment.

We didn't name it; she nested on our back ramada and raised two little ones this spring.  Now she comes back from time to time, and just shows up.  She isn't at all afraid of us; I took this photo last week within eight feet of her.


Yes it is!  Thanks for stopping by.
