—“Quoting yourself?”—Chip Sills
Is there some other way of demonstrating that a body of text is an excerpt from a larger body of text, thereby informing the reader that there is more to be known if desired?
Is there some reason I shouldn’t disambiguate new content from repeated content?
Is there some reason that salient ideas and arguments often buried in longer works, overlooked in reading, or ignored because of length, should not be promoted to quoted excerpt such that those with less time or patience can make use of them?
Is there some reason I shouldn’t include both image and text so that either can be shared depending upon the medium its shared upon?
Is there some reason that I shouldn’t use these quotes (short) excerpts (longer) in image form for marketing the ideas in feeds like twitter?
I thought so.
