What day is it? What time?
Q1: What does one cook for a family who is partially bored of staying in and socially distanced from their friends?
A1: I have some ideas…stay tuned. (It’s only been a few days here in Toronto, but it’s been much longer in other places and the internet educates us with their plight, creativity and humour.)
Q2: Who fights off boredom with incessant snacking and questions about what’s there to eat?
A2: Teenagers. They’re a hungry bunch. Bored teenagers are even hungrier. (And we’re only on day 3 of the social isolation…)
Accurate, up to date information is a good thing. So is common sense.

Welcome to the most convoluted title I’ve have come up with yet. Hold on to your hat as you read my post because I am in a ramble-y sort of mood. 😛
Today I discovered something cool at a local coffee shop.
I contacted the Happiness Engineers at WordPress to find out what the disconnected comment situation is all about. In my case, it usually happens if I publish in mobile (rarely) or if I start writing in mobile, and then finish/publish on my laptop (usually).
Disclaimer: The following post is about an experience I had listening to a podcast. I am not advertising the blogs or podcasts on behalf of the bloggers, although I did link to them. They didn’t ask me to write this post; I came up with this idea all by myself. 😉 Also, be aware: this is a lengthy, wordy post. Exactly the sort of thing you would expect from me. 😉
The point of blogging is to share something with the people who live in the internet.
Imagine a book. Its pages empty. Because no one is writing the words.
That would be me.
Thank you Michael of Kuched for having nominated me for an award.
I will answer his questions first, then nominate my list of people below along with my set of questions.
PS Michael has made me part of his morning routine. I am a ‘fix’ apparently. Hah. He also thinks I secretly rule the world…pfff. AS IF! Here is what he said about me:
Have you ever come across a blog post or a comment that is quite lengthy and the words are all grouped together and the thoughts are one big mixed-up jumble and there are no pauses or breaks or spaces and the entire thing runs on and on quite possibly with multiple thoughts within the same paragraph and after reading a few sentences you notice your brain starts to hurt?
Add some white spaces.
Insert some empty lines.
Like I just did.
Just hit enter.
It’s not hard.
I love reading longer posts or comments but it is so tiring on the eyes and brain to see a huge clump of words all grouped together into one giant paragraph without a break or a breather.
Especially in comments. Comments require white space just as much as regular blog posts.
Don’t be afraid of a little white space. You will encourage, rather than discourage, people to continue reading. Because I can guarantee you, I am not one to stick around for long if you write on and on without white space. And I really do want to read you!
So please, remember:
White space is your friend. 🙂
