    Please explain. My interpretation of the quote is a bit different from yours. I understand that being “cryptic” here is the whole goal, but…I would like to know (straight out) what you are trying to convey about my harmless blog. I hope this an easy request, and it is okay if you don’t like my blog. I’d rather you just be honest and state it straight out for those who require this explanation (call me ignorant, if you will.).

    I always look for ways to improve myself and my writing, and, if what I wrote offended you in some way, it is easy for me (and for my readers…because obviously they have to read my blog) for you to be honest about it so that I may improve. I rarely find constructive criticism offensive, and I welcome honest and kind feedback. Thank you for your comment. 🙂

    Mina, you misunderstand my blog. Look around. (Especially at the “Word Game” tab, by the rider’s leg) I post spoilers to word games from the comics page of the newspaper. One of them is a puzzle called the Cryptoquote. When I’m done solving and posting the answer I use the Zemanta feature to pull up pictures and “related articles”. I like to use “related articles” by fellow WordPress bloggers, kind of as a way of giving back. Your article came up as a result of my putting the words “talk-talk” in the “refine” box of Zemanta. I don’t specifically know why Zemanta gave me you article, as I haven’t read it yet, but I do like Native Americans, and I liked the title of the book you were reviewing, so that is why I chose it. That’s all it is, dear lady.

    Oh! I sincerely apologize for my misunderstanding :). Thank you so much for your explanation, and I truly appreciate you taking the time to respond to me!!

    I’ve never even heard of Cryptoquote actually until your blog, and I think it’s great that I learned something new today! Puzzles are so much fun, but Cryptoquote is a game no one’s ever told me about until now…Of course, it’d been helpful if I actually read newspapers (or pay attention to the news more…), right?? I know I should…especially since I love reading so much. It’s just life is so hectic, and there’s so many things I want to do and can’t do that it often drives me crazy!

    Anyway, sorry! I tend to start with a topic and then get completely sidetracked sometimes because my brain thinks ahead and my mouth (or in this case, fingers?) just stops and tries to follow the new train of thought. (You can imagine the proofreading I have to do!)

    Okay, after reading your description of the Cryptoquote, I finally understand! I tried reading the posts, but, for some reason, I understood what you were trying to do with the Jumble Spoiler but not with the quote. Now I’m like “well, duh! -slaps forehead-”

    Well, thank you again for your explanation and for your efforts to relieve my confusion! It’s always wonderful to know that there are kind people out there :).
