AKA Who cares?
I usta be an editing fool. Guess I still am to a degree, but I especially try to make sure I am "completely" finished with a post before making it public. Although sometimes my posts are novellas (and I'm not apologizing, I just happen to be an observant, detail-oriented, anal, paranoid, bitchy, nit-picking, sarcastic, snarky person who loves the release, the adrenaline rush of getting this shit out of my brain), I honestly do prefer posts right with the the world as well as right with spelling and grammar.
But more than anything, I prefer things out of my head and on to this proverbial paper. This is the most writing I've ever done, particularly b/c I'm not being forced to do it for a grade. I'm proud of that. I also remember some advice on writing that I'd read years ago and I'm trying to follow it - just get it down, worry about structure, edits, spelling etc later. Just get it spewed first. Make it pretty as you finish. That's what spell check is for. (He'd obviously never used Blogger, huh?)
Lately, I haven't had the time or energy to make things as perfect as I can, as my sometimes anal self wants so hard to do. It hasn't been that I haven't noticed the errors as I do a re-read after uploading; I just haven't been motivated enough to tackle Blogger or to tackle my own lack of energy to make stuff right.
1) A dose of lazy sneaked in, perhaps. (Hushed whisper.... she's letting herself go .... tsk, tsk)
2) I have a desire to not have anyone reading me via feeds (like Bloglines) to have to read (skip over?) my re-re-re-re-edit 95 times. That quite honestly is a personal preference based on what I do not desire others to have to suffer through, that which I have suffered through. Consider that one typo courtesy. We know you are capable of better, we snicker at your momentary lapse, but we UNDERSTAND!
I cannot believe how much some people tweak their posts. They could have done 15 add'l quality posts for the time wasted.
For the record, consider this one of 15 from me. (You judge the quality part, not for me to say, quite frankly.)
Hence, that "they're" which exists in my most recent post instead of "their" (gosh I abhor that fuck up) and that silly "I son" that sneaked in instead of "my son," just ignore those blemishes and others. Chalk it up to good time management.
