Stop press: I’ve moved!

It seems quite apt for a last post here, on a blog I defined as “sharing stuff I’m learning as I go”, to say: I’ve learned that I’m not really good at compartmentalising and that trying to keep separate blogs for different purposes just isn’t the way for me.

So, from now on I’m going to do  all  most of my blogging in one place, which I’ve named quite simply Meirav’s Blog. (The one exception is Church Laundry, which I am going to keep as a separate entity as I feel it really is fulfilling a specific need.)

So, tone of voice doesn’t always help us understand…

I have heard it said so many times – how online communication is more open to misunderstanding because we don’t hear the other person’s tone of voice and we don’t see their facial expressions… Heard it so many times and … Continue reading


Learning stuff about Twitter

so, on Twitter, only if someone follows me then I am able to send them a message (DM). (I started using Twitter a few weeks ago, am gradually picking things up as I go.)


If your name/username starts with L

When setting up my profile here I almost set it to display my username as lyagushka and then I remembered something I’d observed elsewhere on the net – a guy whose username is lfom (starting with an L) and people are … Continue reading
