On a more technical level, I did take some of the commentary about my writing over there to heart, and greatly reduced my use of quotation marks in my latest post. I tend to write "verbally" and use quotes and italics to sort of carry inflection and emphasis the way I might say something, and am so used to that format that I probably "don't see it" as much as others do, but looking over the previous posts I could get how that might be distracting. Unfortunately, I also tend to use quotes when using a word or phrase that I might not be 100% connected with (for instance in my latest post, where I use "coached" ... where it implies a certain cynicism around the term ... or "elevator speech" where it might not be a recognized term).
I also "pulled out the big guns" with one of my biggest "hints" ... this being the finely-honed "networking cards" that I use. As pissed off as I was to be being berated about not spewing out everything in the first week of posting, this is one of my "signature items" and I hope it goes over well. I tried hard to not make it look like a commercial for VistaPrint (and I used their "generic" URL rather than anything "affiliated") but felt I needed to let folks know that they really ought to get onto the VP mailing list for sales (heck, this morning they had a mailing offering the premium cards "for free"!). One thing that the gal "suggested" was that I break my posts into smaller bits, so I didn't go into particular detail on stuff that I would have normally added, which means that I'm going to have to figure out how to effectively backtrack to something mentioned in this for follow-up. Bleh.
Won't somebody just HIRE ME and I won't have to mess with this stuff?
Anyway, today is also the last of the month, which means that I've successfully completed the NaBloPoMo ... which I assume means nothing other than I don't have think about that anymore.
