TRAVELLING WITH WORLDPULSE

I live in an area of British Colimbia that is somewhat remote and isolated. I travel around the 300 mile long island and gather information and redistribute this information to others. I am presently in a library 300 miles from where I live sharing the worldpulse community with the librarian here and getting help with copy and paste. I am printing out stories to take on my travels. When ever I go anywhere I share worldpulse and all it does for people. I have benifited so much form this site and feel like it is home away from home. I learn new things and then share what I learn with others all the time.

I cant imagine my life without this site or opportunity to speak out about issues and things that are so important.
Most of the women I meet are interested in learning and an outlet that speaks to the heart of the matter and the digital world offers that opportunity. I have learned a lot and I am so grateful for that as it has built up my confidence. I am getting more comfortable with the digital world and what it has to offer.

you are welcome

I find that everywhere I go there is so much to learn and share. I study as I go even in offices I am in I read all the information on walls and posters and the brochures to see what is going on.

Libraries

I love libraries also, Diane. When I am travelling, and need to find a place to check email or print out something, I often look for a library, and find the librarians are usually extremely helpful. They have been busy reinventing the idea of the library for a digital age, which is wonderful.
Sharing news about good things that are happening is such a powerful thing to do - keep on doing it!
All the best,
Rosemary

Diane, Your story is very

Diane,
Your story is very inspiring! What kind of responses do you receive from the people with whom you share World Pulse? How many do you think begin to use it?

I am a big fan of the Pacific Northwest, in particular the way the clouds lift and then drop down again, revealing great beauty and then shrouding everything in mystery.

With kindness,
Kit
