Holly Buchanan wrote a humorous piece on Groddotcom about staying in hotels. Once you get through the chitter chatter about mouthwash as shampoo and shampoo as shaving cream, there’s some real meat in this little post.
The gist? Be clear.
Yeah, she’s talking about being cute. As in, don’t. Or, at least, don’t let it affect your clarity.
Online, people don’t have the benefit of hearing your tone of voice or seeing your body language. All they have are words on a screen. That increases your chances of miscommunication. So when you write about things online it is always best to go for clarity more than humor or cuteness. It’s a good point and Holly Buchanan makes it well, even cutely.
