I can’t tell you how many little (but important) things I have learned from reading other people’s blogs. Joanna Goddard’s “A Cup of Jo” is one of my favorites and since I was almost two months behind on her posts, I decided to play catch up today. I came across a short, but sweet post about the correct way to introduce people and now I’m pretty sure I’ll stick to this method every time now since I”m now aware of it.
“When you’re introducing someone, you should always say their name first and their relationship to you second.
Wrong: “This is my sister, Lucy.”
Right: “This is Lucy, my sister.”
That way, you spotlight the person–not their connection to you. ”
You might think that this is so small of a detail that it doesn’t even matter, but it’s because of the detail that it DOES matter.
