Connie, I hear what you are saying, and I think it has to do with writing style. I had a class a few years ago that said we should always write from a personal view-point, and I don’t agree with that. I feel the fact that it’s on Terri’s personal blog infers that it’s her own opinion, and I’m a fan of writing that uses less “I” statements. Less “I” statements implies that you are speaking from a place of authority and as it’s Terri’s blog she has all the authority.

I realize that this writing style is a personal preference and one that isn’t utilized on the internet much these days. I would say the same even if I didn’t agree with so much of what Terri is saying. (I also realize that I use a lot of “I” statements on here — that’s so my opinions don’t sound overly bossy and I think it’s better to be this way on a forum.)
