To this day, I still prefer the imperial system. When a baby is born and I'm told the weight in grams, I always have to ask, What's that in pounds? I have difficulty converting mass. And, although I can convert inches and centimetres when I need to, I have to think about it.
The only exception has been miles per hour and kilometres per hour. With a speedometer in miles per hour and road signs in kilimetres per hour, I learnt to convert very quickly!!!
On my blog, I use the imperial system for two reasons:-
- It's the one I naturally think in.
- I see it used a lot online.
My question to you is, which system would you prefer me to use? Are you happy with me just using imperial (inches), or would you prefer me to add cms as well... using my trusty tape measure?
