the new reading environment

One thought on “the new reading environment

  1. Engagement of writing style means nothing when your busy retracting said statements, instead of concentrating on writing quality styled articles full of good tidbits, useful to our daily lives. Headlines and bylines matter more than the quality of content. We as readers are left to nibble at crumbs left by writers who leave out the most delicious of details, in favor of a more passive-aggressive style rant. The rhetorical effect is “lost within the sauce” and therefore, leaves us as a community begging for a mutual understanding of what has happened to our ability to effectively communicate.
