My husband feels that there are too many italicized words in my shoe tying post of yesterday.
When he read parts of the post aloud to me, his emphasis on the those words was very sharp and distracting.
I explained that the emphasis they motivated in my head was softer somehow.
I was surprised by his interpretation, but what he said makes some sense to me.
He feels that I have italicized where most readers might put emphasis on their own.
That detracts from the natural flow of the writing and makes the entire post less readable.
I want to be a better writer/blogger/internet presence, so I need your honest input.
What do you think about my italics?
Oh, and just so you don’t feel used solely for my personal betterment, I will try to post something for your enjoyment later this afternoon.
