Winds of change



I have decided to change the style of this blog. Until now, I have been writing what came to my mind, based on thoughts present for years and on ideas that appeared randomly. I have decided to write in essay format, in a more formal way. By doing so, the ideas might be expressed in a more clear way. In addition, English is my second language so I think some extra work has to be put in what it is written by me. When I went back to my old posts, this was the feeling: chaotic!

People who read the blog will let me know their feedback.

Your English has always seemed good to me.
I think the essay format is good, as long as postings don't get too long, because that's when I tend to switch off.
I enjoy reading your blog, always insightful and useful.

Dr Marco, your English is excellent. No worries there.

I think the essay format is preferred. Don't worry about long entries (re above comment). If some readers have a short attention span, that's not your problem.

I was going to say something similar to Greg S.

Marco, again, your English is excellent. The challenge for me (and most writers I think) when we write, that we do it as accurately and as honestly as possible. One of the things I value about the discipline, is that it forces me to articulate what I truly believe, and since it is then there for everyone to see and judge, then holds me to it afterwards!

Thanks to all of you. We will see how the experiment works.

Once again I'll say your english is fine. I for one write my blogs in burst mostly when I'm on hold. They generally don't even have a coherent thought. I just assume people will understand what I'm saying. That being said I always understand your posts. I think that an essay format will suit you well, though. I enjoy reading your blog and the discussions it usually prompts.

You probably handle the english language better than most of us downhome US southerners, Doc. ;) I'm not speaking of all southerners, of course. Just those of us from the swamps and the hills. LOL

"Just those of us from the swamps and the hills. LOL".

Not to mention French dudes trying to speak Cajun...

Your site is great as it is. As an English teacher, I would suggest that you avoid the American tendency to assume that bigger is always better, and that too much is never enough. Saying it concisely is generally better for the blog format.

Dr. Marco,

In 1970 my dad told me that success is achieving your goals. Just a few weeks ago I saw that definition again for the first time since 1970. It was in a comment on Sarah's blog...

If the goal is to share and idea then grammur and speeling are irrelevant unless they misrepresent the idea.
