Recently, I read this blog article by Just Michele.
I knew many of our expat team would be able to relate to this and asked for her permission to post the link here for you all to read.
The internet has brought so many of us, who would never have otherwise had the opportunity to meet, so close together. Our expat team is a testament to this. We chat as though we have known each other all our lives. Some of us have even met in various parts of the world and shared our stories with the rest. We welcome new members with open arms and nobody need feel like a stranger.
It is wonderful to know that no matter how alone you may be feeling in your own little corner of the world that there are others, just like you, who understand and are there to talk to when you need a friend.
An offered virtual cup of tea and piece of cake is there to feed our souls and comfort us when we need a little support. To many this may sound silly but to those who have moved miles away from everything and everyone they are close to, it is so welcome.
Our team is growing and there are many who join in our daily chat and/or promotional games. Thank you Etsy for your teams. Where would we be without them?
If you would like to be a part of our Etsy Expat Team, you can go to our home page and request membership. Our rules of engagement are few and we accept expats, re-pats, would-be expats and world travellers.
Come join us... kettle's on!
