Some of what I read rang true, yet there was information that I had never heard. Sooo, I went to snopes.com to check it out. Sure ‘nuf, some of it was false.
What I’m getting at is a comment I received about an article I posted January 23, 2012 titled: 12 Rules of Life That Will Never Change
I attributed the list to Bill Gates, which is incorrect. Guess I forgot to check snopes.com on that post. It is Charles J. Sykes who created the list.
I want to thank “Anonymous” for the correction. It may not be critical to dot each i and cross every t, yet it’s important to get the facts right because others depend on me.
As a writer, I learned long ago to appreciate criticism if it’s constructive. I have to wonder about this reader’s intention:
Anonymous may be right but needs to change a few things:
Such as, it’s polite to say something positive before going for the “gotcha” on a blogger’s post—shows a little class.
Show your face and put a name to it when you bring someone down. Don’t hide behind a faceless icon without a name. There are thousands with the name Johnson.
As for me, I learned a lesson and need to change also: like double-check the facts before I hit publish.
Oh yes, one final fact…
I respond to all comments unless they say Anonymous.
