: On MSNBC’s Connected last week, I quoted a blog about McDonald’s 50th and I struggled over how to pronounce the name: EEE-ah-triss-dot-com, is what I settled on. And then I got email from the very nice blogger behind that blog. ieatrice is actually I… eat… rice. It’s even next to a rice bowl. I’m such an idiot.
But this does remind me, bloggers: When I want to link to a blog (or plug it on TV), I’d love to say the name of the blogger. But it’s amazing how many blogs don’t bother to put their names on their home pages and not because they’re trying to remain anonymous but just because they apparently assume that anyone reading already knows who they are.
As they say on NPR in letters time: Make sure to include your name and how to pronounce it…..
