I’m an Email addict and I am okay with that!

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.

I’ve written before about my love affair with Yahoo! email, but something happened the other day that really drove home to me the impact that email has on my life…

A few weeks ago, I drove to Georgia to drop my daughter off at her aunt’s house to visit a while with her cousins before heading to her grandmother’s house.

Middle of Nowhere, GA

We were in central Georgia, in the middle of nowhere…without cell phone reception. As you can imagine, I was a little out of my mind being disconnected from not only my husband, but the world. No email, no internet = no tweeting, status updating, text messages, etc. I was very busy catching up with my sister in law during the day, but when it was time to go to bed, I was completely at a loss. I missed my husband terribly.

And then something funny happened. A wifi network connection popped up on my iPhone…and it was unlocked and it worked.

Just like that, I was back in business. I spent the next hour emailing back and forth with my husband, catching up on our days, the trip, when I was leaving to go home, etc.

 

Then I returned the 30 something emails I had received while I was there, caught up with friends, answered questions from friends and family, did a little business for the blog…it’s honestly amazing how much you can miss when you are “offline” for 24 hours!

It dawned on me during that trip that I really am 100% dependent on my email. Although I am active on social networking sites, it is my email that keeps me connected to the world – and my husband!
