The Internet + Me

25 June 2017



It's hard to imagine what life would be like if the Internet suddenly broke down and stopped working. As a blogger and freelancer, I'm pretty much constantly online - and the thought of having no Internet is just a little bit scary! 


I remember going online for the first time back when I was a child, and although I used to use the Internet mostly just to play games on the Cartoon Network website and Miniclip, the Internet has evolved into something much more than just a little bit of fun. It's pretty much become a way of life. Today I'm collaborating with TalkTalk (www.talktalkbusiness.co.uk) to share the aspects of my life that totally rely on the existence of the Internet.

Work

As someone who's work involves being online most of the time, it would be pretty much impossible for me to carry on with my job if the Internet suddenly ceased to exist! Whether I'm working on a blog post, managing a company's social media account, implementing SEO or emailing a client on the other side of the world, none of this would be possible without the Internet. Even more worryingly, the skills that I have acquired in digital marketing would be completely useless to anybody if the Internet wasn't around (and all those hours spent blogging would have been a total waste of time, eek!).

My Chilltime

It's great to spend some time away from the online world when you want to chill and relax. However, there's no denying that quite a large chunk of my 'me-time' involves being online in some way. Whilst I wouldn't necessarily be actively posting updates on Twitter or a new photo on Instagram, one of my favourite ways to unwind is by watching videos on YouTube - whether it's a vlog or a DIY video, there's something so relaxing about catching up on my favourite YouTubers' videos after a long day.

Finding Out The Answers

Whatever your job is, however old you are and wherever you live, you have most probably uttered the words 'I'll Google it!' at some point in the last few years. It's hard to think back to a time when you couldn't just log on to Google, type out literally anything you might want to find out the answer to - and have the answer appear just before your eyes in mere seconds. I couldn't imagine completing my university degrees without the help of the Internet. Actually, I completed my Masters degree by distance learning, so most of what I learnt and communicating with my dissertation tutor was mostly done online!

What does the Internet mean to you?
