Don't Look Up My Blog

I try really hard to never use my full name on my blog. Mostly because I'm scared a potential client will look it up and see everything wrong with it. And not hire me (obviously).

I edit for a living. I write for a living too. I used to teach English for a living.

But I blog for fun. And, as a result, I seldom never edit my blog. In fact, I can't remember the last time I actually read over a post before I hit publish.

Occasionally, my sister will text me and point out a spelling mistake (when she reads my, like, once every three months). ONE TIME a complete stranger emailed me re: an error in my post and I was mortified. For the next week I tried to watch more carefully but I got over that rather quickly.

You'll find mistakes here. Sometimes big ones. You'll find unsubstantiated thoughts and ideas. You'll find insights that sometimes sound stupid (even to me, should I dare go back to my 2009 posts...what was I thinking???). Sometimes I come off as a total douche. Sometimes I come off as a whiner. Sometimes I come off as a person who was unlikely to have passed Grade 11 English given all the errors in my posts (for the record I have two university degrees. Oof.)

I guess the point I'm trying to make is that this space is purely for fun- maybe a bit of writing practice, maybe a bit of cheap therapy, maybe a bit of egotistical self-indulgent back-patting, and maybe a bit of a place where I can whine and complain uninterrupted.

But it's not my writing portfolio. Nor is it indicative of my editing abilities (I'm good, I swear!). It's just my little space- that hopefully doesn't have my name attached to it very often.


  1. But don't you use your blog when you send pitches, etc?

    1. Very rarely- usually I will use links to specific blog posts if the job calls for it. I have been offered writing jobs based on my blog I'm assuming those people read my error-free entries:)

  2. Hahaha - umm I read this like everyday :)

    1. Haha, you must because you commented the same day I wrote this!
