Welcome to #CheckIn for Thursday December 26
Here’s where you can continue the topic from yesterday, send a wave, give brief update or take part in daily thread. If you’re #NewHere
, welcome! Today is Boxing Day and Kwanzaa for those who celebrate.
For years this has been “drive home” day for us but the tradition is root in charity; British aristocracy served their house-staff for that day. Growing up I remember my parents making sure to catch the garbage collectors and mail deliverer to give them a gift (mostly a bottle of something). Most of us no long have staff but many do have people who assist us – from housecleaners to home care to neighbours. We make sure to get something for a couple of our neighbours who we share snow clearing and yard monitoring with. How do you show your appreciation for people who help smooth your life?What is #CHECKIN?
It’s a longstanding daily tradition started by Lawrence (LD) Williams on g+. Peeps throughout the world check in to mingle. It’s been likened to what folks do around a water cooler, on a front porch or at a cafe-bar, but online. If pressed for time just wave (like) as you run/fly/swim by. You’ll always be seen and appreciated. #CheckIn
is a daily post-thread where regulars and visitors alike come to chat, as the sun travels through all time zones
When consumer G+'s sun set, the original checkin (hosted by LD) seamlessly reappeared at MeWe. Pluspora’s checkin also began not long after. #CheckIn
is a convenient neighbourhood place where regulars and visitors alike know they can go to chat with familiar friends or with friends they haven’t met yet, as the sun travels through all time zones.
Pluspora CheckIn was initially set up by Su Ann Lim with LD Williams’s help. Starting August 2019, Pluspora #CheckIn
