In the last few days, I have restarted this site, have finally sold my soul to Twitter (for the sake of this site), and have been reflecting on the ways which the internet and social media can be used for communication.

I found this snippet from the good bishop Wright, where he reflects on blogging, social media, etc. He makes one or two statements that I’m still chewing. I thought I would share.

I think he makes very good points. Any of these tools that are taken to an extreme are negatives in our lives. I am glad that you are exploring how you use social media in your life. I think that, if used correctly, these tools can be a valuable addition to life and don’t have to take away from “real” interaction.
