It’s April 4th and we’re having a raging snowstorm!
In WordPress’ own blog, they wrote the other day, a post about how others see you. It was entitled «See yourself through a different set of eyes». I have no idea how other people perceive me, but it reminded me of one thing:
Back in the old days of Yahoo360º, I had a woman follower, and she must have seen me as plain stupid. She lives in this country. She constantly sent me messages explaining to me how things worked here or about the English language. She could write a blog and then send me a ‘side message’, explaining. In the beginning, I just thought she was trying to be kind and helpful, and maybe she was. I had no problems understanding what she wrote, and it was mostly about her bodily functions anyway.
Eventually, it just got down to being bisarre — I got several messages telling me to ask my husband what this or that meant … expressions that were so common so even a beginner would know them. I was so tempted to tell her that if she couldn’t write in a way so that people would understand, then something was seriously wrong with her writing skills. I had to end that ‘relationship’, because the meaning of blogging can’t be that I should end up raving mad each time I go in there.
I may have got another one now…
