Welcome to Pondering with a Purpose
Although I love blogging and hopping and following all the bloggers, I found that I had not actually been writing a blog so I decided to create a hop where I would give a prompt and write about the prompt. My hope is that other bloggers would also write to the prompt.
Here are the rules:
1. Grab the Pondering with a Purpose Badge
2. Look at the week's prompt
3. Post something on your blog that relates to the prompt - it can be a story, a poem, a picture -- anything you want it to be.
4. Come back here and add the URL from your post to the linky list below.
5. Go check out the other bloggers who have added their links to the list.
6. AND most of all.... Have fun!
Thanks for hopping!
This week's prompt is
Talk or Type
Talk or Type
We live in a fast paced, electronic, technical world where everyone has a phone cord plugged into their ear. Kids are far more advanced technologically than their parents and the world has cut down on the use of paper. Now, books are read on machines and the printing industry is going to becoming something of a relic. Heck, even newspapers are going out of business. But what my biggest pet peeve is has to do with text messages instead of phone calls. I want to HEAR someone talk to me, I don't want to read the message. And worse than that I don't want to type it out on my tiny little telephone...and please do not start spewing to me that I need to go get an iPhone, or a phone with a keypad on it so that it is easier. I have a phone! for goodness sake, what is the point of having a phone for texting?
Now the next question seems to be almost as difficult....did instant chatting on line take the place of sitting down face to face and having a conversation? Or did it become the new 'bar scene' for singles? Because every other commercial on television is for some single on-line dating service - and excuse me, but isn't that on line pimping?
I would love to see some responses and posts on this prompt......add your post to the linky below and I am really pondering this question.
