Occasionally, my sister will text me and point out a spelling mistake (when she reads my blog...so, 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.
