when you’re online, usually you dont like to read alot on the screen.
unless its great like this blog. (cheap joke)
btw, thats why i always space things out so much. isn’t it much eaiser and quicker to read?
anywho, the point is this:
online when you come across an article you size it up (with or without knowing) very quickly
here’s a few things you take inventory on (subconsciously):
- url address
- is this a legit site like microsoft.com or is it geocities.com/someuser
- Â layout of the site
- is he clean?
- if he is, let him in and tell him to take his shoes off. (movie reference?)
- title of the article
- snappy words
- cool topic
- author of the article
- ever heard of em?
- whats their title / position
- quick skim of article
- have i read this?
- how does it look?
you may not realize it, but you’re sizing it up too. christ i bet you just did it before you read this.
