Express yourself

#297: Tell us about a time you couldn’t quite get your words or images to express what you wanted to express. What do you think the barrier was? For bonus points, try again.

Right now… Literally, I cannot seem to think of one specific moment where I have been unable to express myself properly. The only minor things I can think of have been due to language barriers (I.e. Not speaking each other’s language sufficiently enough for the conversation to continue on that topic).

Express Yourself

It’s a text, text, text world

#124: How do you communicate differently online than in person, if at all? How do you communicate emotion and intent in a purely written medium?

When writing emails, social media posts etc, I try to convey emotions through the (over-usage sometimes) or exclamation marks and smiley faces. However, I’d like to think that the people who know me, know that 99% of what I say is in a friendly, fun way and so read it as such 🙂

That said, I’m all for real conversations and try to keep written ones to a minimum… or as a 90% real, 10% written ratio!
