My last post about our postal experience with my mom’s gift was picked up on a few other sites. That happens from time-to-time. I like it… encourage it… because I get more hits.
I write to be read.
Sometimes a blog post can be picked up in an unusual place or unusual way. That happened last week. It was one of those things I stumbled upon. Otherwise, I would have never known.
When I wrote about the Indiana and North Carolina primaries, it was picked up by Le Monde, the website of the major French newspaper.
I’m flattered, though my comment was totally mischaracterized.
Which (Google) translates to:
I wasn’t saying that. I was just quoting others and the torrent of post-primary pundits.
How sad is this? Even when misunderstood, I’m glad to be cited. The missed perception doesn’t bother me at all. That’s got to be a character flaw.
