I went through the ‘About me’ on my Facebook profile again and read the first line-
“To know me better check out: http://bit.ly/VG_MSP_Interview …”
Now what I actually meant was – “Hey pal, if you really want to know about about me, who I am , what I do, what I am interested in.. it is all available at this link – http://bit.ly/VG_MSP_Interview ”
However, some people may interpret it as – “To know me; better check out – ” which seems that- “Hey you there! Go and check out this link. It will let you know who I am!” Of-course it looks to the person that I am an egotist!
When I saw that, I was bewildered. I really never thought that it could mean that!
I was surprised to see that a simple comma could make such a difference. Then I changed it to To know me better, check out. I still felt that something was missing, then when I filled it up with another marvellous word, it finally looked worth reading- “To know me better, please check out …”
Indeed words and their placement makes a lot of difference!
