....or am I the only one that was miscellaneously chosen to be insulted? Here are some excerpts from the email I received from "James Wilson"
Subject: Check out the internet for SENIORS in Big Screen Live."
I find your blog "It's a Dodi's Life" informative and I've been following your blog for quite some time. I wanted to share with you bigscreenlive.com an innovative new software solution that makes computers easier for older adults and beginners.
The founders and the entire team at BigScreenLive have witnessed first-hand how seniors are being left behind by today's technology. Recognizing a tremendous opportunity to provide a socially valuable product the team started BigScreenLive.
If new and innovative software tickle your interest, do check out BigScreenLive to see how senior-friendly technology has been created for convenience of use. We'd love to hear your expert feedback & also a mention in your esteemed blog would be great.
This is so very bad. "Older adults and beginners"? "...being left behind by today's technology"? Huh?
First of all? I'm still in my early 40's. I realize that I am no spring chicken - however, a technologically incompetent senior citizen I am not. I don't know HTML, mostly because I choose not to... not because the technology has left me behind. I can do it if I have to, but it's so very boring to me. I blog. I email. I excel and turbo tax. I can find anything on the internet. I burn cd's, make dvds, and am mp3 / ipod savvy. I can photoshop with the best of them, and they can kiss my overly large 17" CRT Monitor with their offers to enhance my senior citizen technical abilities.
Secondly? No on finds my blog "informative". Nobody. Entertaining? Perhaps mildly. Quirky? Sure. Rambling? Most certainly. But never "informative". I have my blog pride to think about!
And with that I bid you a Welcome to November! Let the holiday season begin!!
Also? If BigScreenLive would truly like to thank me by forwarding me a gift for "a mention in (my) esteemed blog", they are more than welcome to do so. I'm partial to electronics, jewelry, and photographic lighting equipment. Thanks!
