    Push Me That Inch

    Dear Teachers,


    What does it mean by saying"your blog pushes me that inch"?

    I quoted the sentence from http://www.cloudliving.com/about/

    I stumbled on your blog yesterday, you write really quality articles especially for beginners and I didn’t stop until I was finished reading all posts. I wouldn’t call myself a beginner (been reading for long time) but your blog push me that inch to actually start doing. Thank you for that!




    thank you

    "your blog pushes me that inch"
    I have not seen "inch" used that way before. I think that is non-standard English. There are many mistakes in the quoted text.

    Re: Push Me That Inch

    The commenter, who is not a native Anglophone, has mixed up an idiom.
