NOT MY FIRST person to UN~SUBSCRIBE to VINTAGE HEN HOUSE as I get that on almost EVERY POST I DO………BUT my first e~mail telling me that MY CAPS and EXCLAMATION MARKS are bothersome………….
HERE YOU GO from the source HERSELF!I received this e~mail about two weeks ago.
“I enjoy your blog but unsubscribed as I find the language use so bizarre as to be a complete distraction. Is there some rationale/purpose/method to the punctuation and capitalization?”
In my response I did say I write the way I TALK, so if you know me YOU MOST LIKELY GET IT!Or as my dear friend JAN said, “I CAN HEAR YOU SPEAKING WHEN I READ YOUR BLOG!”
If YOUR My BLOGGING buddy PENELOPE BIANCHI the response was this:
It is purely a REFLECTION of your PERSONALITY!!!
She is trying to make you FIT INTO A BOX of her making!(frankly….it is hard to do those caps and stuff)I couldn’t do it;but it truly does…..(do you agree?If not, don’t say it!)(I know you wouldn’t!!!!)
I hope you will post it just like I said using your caps the way you do…..and NEVER NEVER NEVER stop writing the way YOU DO!
WE LOVE YOU
IT IS you!
No, one can imitate you!I cap all the wrong things…….You are the master of the caps and exclamation points……how sad for her.
I recently was mentioned on a BLOG called HAVE SOME DECORUM and one of ELEANOR’s commentors EXPLAINED me PERFECTLY!
Let me see if I can COPY & PASTE that here for you to see!
Side note: you may know my friend Elizabeth as La Contessa. My friend RJ calls her “All CAPS Contessa” as she distinguishes her writing with perfectly placed capitalization that I love. I have to tell you, this woman is quite remarkable. She is quirky, kind, generous, loving, interesting, forthcoming, a true friend, and is an absolutely magically unique woman. She has a charming blog that you all should check out:
THANKS RJ………….you made MY DAY as well.
As for MADAME ELEANOR sitting over YONDER in PARIS……………..I CANNOT THANK YOU enough!I had over 4065 people PEEKING at MY BLOG because of YOU!!!!!!
YOU HAVE quite THE FOLLOWING!!!!!!!
AS for MADAME PENELOPE……….who came to MY rescue when I wasNOT certain how to respond to this query.Well, let me tell you…………….
Penelope is a FORCE……….she LOVES to comment on BLOGS and has VERY GOOD TASTE!
