I say "following" very loosely as I really just have the links bookmarked on my browser.
Also, it reminds me of the Howrse game I played years ago, which I still have the link for on my computer. I tried to "get back into it" a year or so ago, played for a few weeks and quickly lost interest. It seems I don't have quite the same obsessions as I did when I was a teenager. (now I just play Clash of Clans on my iPad)
However, I am still in touch with a friend I made, as a teenager, while playing that Howrse game online - and now, 10+ years later, we are real-life friends and I go horse-riding with her on overnights in Rockhampton. Who would have thought that a young Irish girl would get chatting to an Australian girl on the internet, decide to move to the same (similar) location in Australia, and become friends?
