A paean in praise of Personal

Discussion in 'Personal' started by Lascarina, Feb 4, 2016.

    A place where we can voice whatever pops into our heads; where we can laugh and cry and give to and receive support from others; where we gain insights into the lives of others and can admire their sense of humour, or their courage and compassion, or their clever use of the mot juste, or their fashion sense or lack of it; where one learns something new every day and has one's attention drawn to information that one would not otherwise have garnered in a month of Sundays.

    Roll up and post your personal two penn'orth!

    I must admit having this 'virtual place' is really important for me at the moment, as it has been in all those days of being unemployed (well paid employment at least!)

    Yes, thanks to all posters. Here's my offering

    Yes, @Lascarina, trite though it sounds, it's been something of a lifeline in several ways. I'm a nosey so and so and I love having an insight, limited though it may be, in the lives of others. It's a bit like reading a novel and weaving another story around the story.

    Thanks for reminding me!

    Very nice place - but it's not very inclusive. [This comment/section has been removed for breaching our Community Guidelines/Terms and conditions]

    For me you covered it in the OP Lascarina.
    I am not sufficiently competent to improve upon your words

    You just have to keep racking up the posts. I was moderated on some forums for a while when I started. I never could work out why certain ones were moderated and not others.

    I too agreed with your OP.

    I agree with all that you've written there. Additionally, although it doesn't always feel like it, there is a sense of community about the place. We do care if somebody's going through a rough time, we feel glad when there's good news and even worry about each other and give genuine offers of help.
    All in all it's a nice place to pop into.

    I do like popping in, even if I don't say anything. I like to read people's thoughts on current issues and musings about life. And I couldn't post til now because I was teaching!

    Personal posters tend to be very generous and forgiving people. I like it here.
