It never fails. No matter how careful I am, or how many times I read over what I’ve written, there will be a typo, an omission, or something misspelled. I’m careful, I read slowly and out loud to make sure I’m happy with pacing, content and structure. I double-check spelling, grammar and punctuation, but as I read my posts once they go live, either I or one of my writer/editor friends will point out the mistake.
I’m a perfectionist. I want to put out the best, most excellent product I can possibly manage, so when I see these errors and typos I become so disappointed in myself.
Blogging is not new to me. I’ve been blogging since 2005. You’d think by now I’d have this thing perfected. Well, as long as a single word must be manually entered, I’m susceptible to make a mistake. Count on it. Just know I try my best and my mistakes are just that, mistakes.
I’d love to be able to share with you a secret way that will guarantee you’ll never make another typo again. But, I haven’t discovered that secret for myself. If you have, please share it with the rest of us.
Are you smiling and shaking your head now? If not, smile anyway, because I bet you read through this blog post a couple of times looking for the typo.
Till next time,
