Some of you may have noticed that I don’t proofread my posts.
I could make up a bunch of reasons for why that is, but mostly it’s just laziness.
Some of you also may have noticed corrections to those mistakes in the past few
day day’s* days’** worth of posts. This is because I have given girlfriend access to fix my posts when she chooses to read them. She doesn’t do this too often, since I usually blather on and on about how excited I am about X in my blog, so there’s no need to read it herself, but occasionally, she’ll take a gander, and usually spot 4 or 5 mistakes right away. I’m debating asking her to proofread all of my posts, but I’d hate to subject her to it. 😛
Besides, all she gets out of me is three square meals a day and a good cuddle buddy. Hardly fair pay for a live in editor.
Perhaps I should offer to rub her feet for every proofed post?
*FUCK! There’s a typo! Damnit it all! ….I only noticed this while reading the post aloud to the girlfriend. She is a wonder and a gem.
** Why yes, I did have this all corrected and she still fixed it for me. Grammar FAIL.
