Dr. Tanya has decided to change things up a bit for her weekly Blogging Insights prompt. Instead of using the Q&A format, she’s going to provide us with a quote about blogging or writing and ask us to express our opinion about said quote.
Except today’s quote has nothing to do with blogging or writing.
“Did you know that 1980 and 2021 are as far apart as 1980 and 1939?”
It’s all about math and the median, which is the middle number in a sorted, ascending or descending, list of numbers. For this exercise, your age is the median number. Just take your birth year and subtract your age from your birth year to find the distance applicable to you.
The older you are, the more dramatic the difference. For an old fart like me, my birth year serves as the median number between 2021 and 1871.
