Watch out about “informing people”

“I’d like to inform you . . . .” “She informed me that . . . .” There’s something off-putting about the word inform. It sounds official and scary. Consider alternates such as: “She told me . . . .” “He let me know . . . .” “I’d like to give you some ideas . . . .”  “Inform” is usually not a friendly connecting word to be using when you’re talking or writing something where you’d like people to relax and consider what you’re saying.
