Although people are quick to complain and criticize, when you ask them for constructive feedback they suddenly turn mute.
A little while ago I asked all of you what could make this blog better.
Only one person came forward with ideas of his own.
Most people I asked directly shrugged off the question and said ‘I don’t know’
I don’t know always means:
I don’t want to go through the trouble of trying to know.
Not Oliver Šperlík.
He’s probably my wittiest student, he’s also exceptionally imaginative, I don’t want to poison his head with writing aspirations, but he has a literary talent with a knack for tragycomedy.
He came to me during class and handed me the overview you can see pictured above.
His remarks were to the point and insightful.
Unfortunately a wordpress blog is shitty, lots of their options do not work at all.
Theoretically I could and would make all the changes Oliver suggests, such as adding categories, but because it’s wordpress, it would fuck up the layout entirely.
I will have to learn code… I’m ‘friends’ with several IT’ers, but none of those will step forward to do it for me. I should have learned code years ago.
This post is dedicated to Oliver Šperlík, one of the most cheerful guys I know, with a contagious positive spirit. He hasn’t been infected with the ‘Am not doing anything unless I get paid for it’ virus yet. And he comes up with excellent suggestions and funny remarks, because he’s not afraid to fail. It’s the fear of making a mistake that keeps us from being creative.
