Embarrassing blogger fail
So, with that in mind, let me share with you a silly, embarrassing, facepalm mistake I've made as a blogger.
For the last two months, I've been sponsoring Love, Elycia and for the last two months, my button has said "Gyspy in Jasper." Do you see the error? I didn't the first time or the second time or the third or fourth or fifth or hundredth time I saw my button. It actually took an email from a reader for me to finally see it. To be honest, even after she pointed it out, I still couldn't see it, so she had to break it down for me. You see, the 's' and 'p' are in reverse. *Face meet palm*
So... yeah, I'm a doofus, and I might just need a copy editor outside of work. My dad generally plays that role, but I don't think he reads many lifestyle blogs outside of this one, so the chances of him seeing my ridiculously embarrassing mistake are pretty slim. Had he seen it, he would have sent me a one line email pointing out the error. He would then sign it, "Your loving editor" and I would be embarrassed for a moment, then quickly fix it and move on.
Where were you on this one, Dad? Just kidding! My fault, all my fault. I guess it's time to start using my trusty friend Miss Spell Check. I can't expect Dad to catch everything!
So ladies, tell me you've made similar errors in the past and I'm not all alone on this one. (If you haven't made a similar error, I'd appreciate it if you lie and just tell me you have.)
