Column Comments


I’m frequently amazed at how often I get compliments and raves on columns I’m not particularly happy with, style-wise, while those columns I think are so freakin’ awesome they should be immediately awarded the Pulitzer get nuthin’.

I wrestled quite a bit with this week’s column, “A President for All Americans,” not because it was an especially difficult topic but because I couldn’t quite figure out the flow of it. In the end I did finish it well before deadline, but I still felt that I hadn’t totally gotten a handle on my position. And you know what? I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it. Weird, huh?

If you’re interested in reading some “testimonials” on my columns/writing, feel free to check out the new section on my Web site. Good for some laughs, anyway.

  1. Bonjour mon amie!Long time no talk, I know…I hope things are going well for you. I just had to virtually roll my eyes a bit – I went to check out your article (which I liked) and then saw the comment (repeated 3 times for emphasis, I’m sure). I hope you got more compliments than comments like that!Take care!

  2. Howdy, AS! So good to see you here!Yeah, I get both good and bad comments, but I’ve gotten used to it. You know, I used to cringe and immediately delete really nasty comments I’d get via email, and then I’d spend the rest of my day stewing over it. Now I just laugh and save it for future “testimonials.” Life’s too short to worry about other people’s problems. I’ve got enough of my own! 😉How <>are<> you???Dear <>Betty<>, bonjour, mon amie! So happy to see you as well! You’ve just reminded me that I need to head on over to MIFG and get back to my regular blogging. The last few months have been so up-and-down professionally and personally (family stuff — the usual), but I think I’m getting back in the groove.I’m sooo glad to see you back. Love the new photo! Cheers,Marjorie
