More Social Now?

Before the Covid-19 corona virus pandemic, I was in a flow. It was regular and comfortable. Now that we’re all stuck at home, I feel that there are more things going on and that I’m being more social than I was before.

Yes, we are home schooling our 7 year old son. That takes time and changes stuff up a bit. Yes, my wife is now on furlough from her job. That’s making things much more stressful. But on the whole, I’ve been busy — connecting, reaching out, communicating.

Is that possible? Seriously? Did it take a global deadly pandemic to make the world come together? More people are reaching out and doing Zoom and other video chats on a regular basis.

I’ve gone to a WordCamp virtually, last weekend, and today there is an online conference (10 hrs of content), about the WordPress Block Editor.

I’m in a Zoom call at least daily if not multiple times a day. I’m connecting with my tech community much more than I did before.

I’m loving it. But why did it take a freaking pandemic for this to happen? I can’t answer that, I don’t think anyone really can.

Have you found yourself becoming more social online? Let me know in the comments.
