I know at least one of my friends will laugh at me for being impressed by this, but I ran into this mess yesterday. I was configuring my new laptop, and importing my e-mail from my gmail account into Outlook, and it brought over all the messages just fine . . . including all the archived messages and the ones from my “Sent” folder – all into my Inbox. All 2300 of them. Oi! My gmail account hasn’t even been open for a year, and I’ve sent and received that many messages. That doesn’t even factor in my e-mail from my last job.

Again, 2300 may not be very impressive to others, but it did make me stop and think about how reliant I’ve become on technology.

On a related note, I’ve also had a couple of recent conversations in which I’ve made a statement close to this: “I know this sounds cheezy and overly dramatic, but seriously, blogging has changed my life.” Pathetic? Perhaps. True? Absolutely.

I know I’m not a widely read blogger, but I’m a thankful one. I’ve made good friends and been encouraged big time in my days in the blogosphere. I will likely be a part of this community for a long time to come.
