you might have to just deal with the first couple paragraphs

So the internet is full of porn and naughty, bad things that we should be afraid of. Yup, I am a mother and a wife and I’m pretty sure I’m sticking porn at the top of my “afraid of things on the internet” list.

Let’s not be catty, and let’s not hide the truth here, if you’ve been on a computer in the past 10 years of your life, even once, you’ve seen email spam that boasts of how to make your penis HUGE, or that XXX girl wants to help you relax, you’ve seen a pop up ad or you’ve hunted it down yourself and looked at porn.

Which has absolutely nothing to do with what I want to write about – but the fact is, you’ve seen it.

To me the internet is like a big hug and that sounds reaaallllly awful after everything I just wrote, but it is my truth. There is so much beauty on the internet. Talents and photos and people sharing their lives and their ideas, their dreams. People letting you sit down at their table and enjoy their meal with them, or allowing you to see the precious moments of their child’s first steps – or how to bake a cake when you have no idea what 1/4 C looks like.

Some times the internet is my crutch, I admit loudly that there are days when I need to step aside and watch the life in front of me and not the life on my screen.

But you’re all so damn wonderful and inspiring. And I love having you in my Reader to remind me that there are adventures every where. And that they’re not all pretty.

One thought on “you might have to just deal with the first couple paragraphs

  1. I love the internet. ANYTHING you need to know, you can find on the internet. I mean, there has never been a time where I could not find an answer to a question I had. That is fascinating. And ten years ago, even though people lived without “make your penis huge” emails, they were also a little less informed at the click of a button. I also love the fact that I can keep up with people from everywhere and see those precious moments like you talked about all while researching information on the weather (if that’s what you fancy).
