Today is my birthday, many friends left birthday wishes on my facebook, I spend a lot of time reply those messages one by one. I remembered there was time that we actually wrote cards to friends at special occasions. Then we gradually started to send e-cards, there were e-card sites can make personalized cards to your friends. Until now, we no longer write card or send cards, we left messages on facebook or connect by MSN, SKYPE as a quicker and more convenience way to deliver our best wishes. We once spent 30 mins to write a card, and sent it, but now we can convey messages in 1 mins, even shorter than 60 secs. Technology has really made life easier, but somehow I have missed the old-fashioned way of handwriting and the joy of opening an actual letter. Don’t you?

  1. Happy birthday! Your post made me remember how much I disliked e-cards. However, I think I would have liked them a lot when I was in high school — especially the ones you can customize.

    I never liked receiving the e-cards. I didn’t like having to open a new window, and the e-cards are not very personal, so it was a waste of time.

    I think you spend a lot of time offline — that’s probably good, but also, it’s surprising!
