Station Identification

nailsMy mother called the other day, "you know honey, you really should be more careful about editing your blog; it is what you do you know". I was at a party the other night with friends; one of them is a word smith with one of the best blogs I have ever read. The topic naturally flows to blogs and he turns to me and says "ya know, you had a couple errors in that last post".

Have you ever had your hair done by someone that has really bad hair, only to walk away with the best cut and style you have ever had? I used to have my nails done by a girl with nails that looked like she was a mechanic rather than a nail technician. I loved my nails though.

There are many professions that require you to be a walking billboard advertising your services. In a way, my blog is just that. I normally don't talk much about work on this blog, for that very reason. This is my personal blog; I started blogging on this site for myself and my family. I try to consider myself the hair stylist that does not have time to get her own hair done because she is too busy making others look fabulous. I am happy that sometimes I am to be too busy sometimes that I just need to post rather than worry about grammar and spelling.

Was it something I said? Three (maybe 4) of my lurkers came out of hiding to comment on this post. I must have done something right here.

Fox...I read your chats...I know you can't spell...or multi task:)

JG..I was not talking about YOU...just hypothetical:)

So good to see you Emily and thanks for the support!

And you Uli...the biggest lurker of them all! You only commented out of obligation since I gave you some linky love:) I will take what I can get from you though...especially since you inspired this post!

Gah. You don't know how many edits I need to do after I hit "publish". I am the WORST at proofreading my own writing.

I have even been known to constantly re-edit comments ... erm, you DO have that option here, dontcha?

errors are no big deal. I find them on my blog all of the time, so I keep telling myself...no big deal. Sigh.
Happy blog hopping!

What are grammer and speeling to do having with blogging? Onestly me just don't saw the connexsion.

Karen MEG said...

Hello there, you, I miss your smiling face from cre8buzz days.

I find for blogging that I will type errors at the heat of the moment, and then read later, totally not believing all of the mistakes that I made that I didn't even see! In the heat of the moment is so much more fun, don't you think?
bloghoppin :)
