Off Topic: Grammar, Does It Matter To You?
Okay, I'll admit, I'm a very bad blogger. Well okay, not a bad blogger, but a bad writer. Well okay, not a bad writer, a lazy one. I'm bad a double checking my post for grammatical and spelling errors. See, I already made a mistake. I'm sorry. Even the Blarney can't help me! :( It does bother me when I re-read my own post and find errors, which I do on occassion. But in most cases, I just like getting the idea out of my head and stopping. My thoughts are often discombobulated, and well, just all over the place--funny because the way I write is really the way I am too. Organization is not my forte...I may suffer from some mental disorder yet to be diagnosed. I love elipses and inappropriate punctuations abound? Seriously, everytime I write something and then I re-read, I find at least a few letters or even whole words missing, and I think to myself, "What the heck?!" Like if I meant to write: "In order to portray professionalism to your readers, it is highly recommended that you double check grammar and spelling in your compositions." It will often look like this: "In order to protray professionalism to you're readers it is highly recommended that double check grammar and spelling in your composition." Yuck! So by admitting this, am I committing blogger suicide? How much does grammar affect your readership? Most blogs that I read, are very well written. I'm quite jealous. Do I want to change my blogging style? I guess in a way I do, but at the same time I don't. Hah. Hey it's my blog, and I write however I want! :P What do you think? Warning, I did not re-read this post.
