The bit over there in the “about me” blurb is fairly accurate. If it’s a longer post, odds are that I just posted the damn thing right away. Then I start noticing grammatical errors on the order of “Paris in teh teh Spring.” Then the broken links start to show up. Then of course, there’s the elimination of adverbs. Then cutting the extraneous sentences.
Then there are the errors pointed out by my “editors.” (Thank you!) So, by the time the post is the third or fourth down the page, it has gone through approximately four or five edits. No lie. Then, at some point, I let them go because I’ve done all I can.
I’m not sure why I don’t edit before I hit that publish button. I either don’t believe in the rough draft, or I believe in organic, living text.
Yeah that last bit sounded like bullshit to me, too.
In any case, just like my posts, I’ll be editing and tweaking and doing my best to not break the site. For those of you that have been here a while, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
New readers should just come back when I say something funny, which should be any week now.
