Thank You For Your Comment21 November 2012
I’ve received the following comment on my last blog post from Claire Smith.
“Let me introduce myself. I am Claire. Smith is my married name, the surname that my daughter also holds. Barzilay is my maiden name. So understandably for social sites, I clump them together to make Claire Barzilay-Smith. I don’t have to explain that do I? I am hoping you are intelligent enough to understand the reasons behind the two names.
If I had a £ for every ”can you spell that for me please”, I would be very rich.
I am wanting to say thank you to you by the way. All this press you keep giving to us, good or bad, is making people want to know more. Which is brilliant. We have had more hits on Truffle in its first few days, (without me even having to do the marketing side), than I could ever dream of. Wicked. Go Truffle! (Printers name, will be on the printed version. No need for the digital download. Obviously).
And just to keep myself at your level for a minute. English grammar. Have you spotted your mistake yet? Easily done!
I don’t want you to stop what your doing by the way. Like I said, it was just a thank you for now. Oh, and you have said that you don’t know what has happened to Be Creative magazine, as we said on Facebook…. Be Creative is a blog for Claire and I to share some of our thoughts and beliefs on creativity. We will be putting together a digital FREE crafty magazine but probably not until next year. Until then we hope you’ll join us here and on the blog and share your creative creations with us. x …so nothing yet.
I understand you don’t live in Saffron Walden, Bishop’s Stortford or Stansted. Even the UK. So if you want to be kept in the loop. Please e-mail me. I will forever keep, interested parties in the loop.
As always, I will look forward to reading your thoughts. Take care.”
No, Claire, I wasn’t confused about your name or suggesting you were hiding under a nom-de-plume. I was purely pointing out that you were the same person I’d referred to in an earlier post, when I’d used your full name. I AM confused though by your referral to “Be Creative is a blog for Claire and I …..” Is there another Claire, or did Kerrie write this? (And, putting on my proof-reading hat, it should be “Claire and me” by the way,)
Your Be Creative blog mentions a monthly magazine from the end of October. As we are now approaching the end of November, I naturally wondered what had happened to it.
Thank you for your comment.
