Have I discovered a blogging "don't"?

The blogging thing works for me, more or less. I even like the idea that sometimes people read what I write and even comment on it. What I don't like is the fact that it reveals my imperfection as an editor of my own writing. As with my private journal, I find it interesting to read what I've written days, months, or even years after the fact. It can be a great stepping off point for refection. That is, unless I find that I've published grammatical errors and typos for all the world to see!

So, since I'm not a great proofreader, I suppose I need to:

  • Not read my own stuff; or
  • Forgive myself for not being perfect; or
  • Be prepared to make occasional corrections.

Just what I needed: another growth opportunity.
