The Embarrassment Of It All

How many times does this happen to you?
It’s like I catch a thousand typos right after it’s published.

Well, not right after since I publish at four a.m. Like, six hours after.


  1. I compose mine in Word first and then transfer it over. I still miss a typo now and then though. Yes, drives me crazy.

  2. Oh, I do the same. Start reading it in the morning and I'm like 'damn it!'

    The problem is I have to do the corrections on a PC, because for whatever reason if I start editing a post on a laptop, I run the risk of deleting a picture out of the post.

  3. I decided a long time ago, at this point, that I can't worry about typos in blog posts. I don't have the time (or headspace) to devote to editing on the blog. I have to catch them while I'm in the process of doing the writing.
    I also don't go back and read my posts once they're published...
    ...unless it's a long time after they're published and I'm trying to remember what I said.

  4. O, it happens to me as well! One way of getting around it is compose the post, and come back to it after sometime. There is a greater chance of detecting typos.

  5. After I finish writing a post, I first hit "preview" and reread the whole thing. I always have to change at least one thing (but usually more). Typos. Missed words. Things that sound just wrong. It's the old advice to read something in a different form than you wrote it.

    Not that typos still don't get through. But if you saw how many typos I actually catch...

  6. Yup, that's how it goes. I just noticed a typo in today's post, and I need to fix it. >.>
