The Subtle use of a Highlighter…

Highlighting. It makes a mess of your computer screen.

As I’m sure you’ve already noticed, there’s certain sections within my posts that I like to draw your attention to by the genius use of a highlighter!
It’s an idea that I dreamt up, patented, and if I see any other website ripping off the idea, I’ll be suing their asses off! No, just kidding. I actually stole the idea from Mens Health Magazine, back when I used to read it. Mens Health always had (I’m sure they still do) these articles on subjects such as: How to Avoid Getting Cancer This Week!”, with the words-of-advice of Don’t smoke!” or Stay away from Uranium!” usually getting the highlighter treatment.

The reason for me telling you this, is that I do indeed recognize that most of us lead extremely busy lives, and that reading every single-thing you find whilst surfing on the Internets is impossible. The highlighted passages in my articles are for that reason entirely. Maybe you’re on the Internet at work, and you don’t want your boss catching you “goofing off.” The highlighted passages will provide the cliff-notes on the article, so that you can go about your day, that ever so slightly more well-informed on wine. But saying that, if your boss has a problem with you being on this website during time you’re on the clock, you probably need a new job!
That’s all.
