AN INBETWEEN INBETWEEN

December 27, 2011

Tomorrow is my regular post day and it is upcoming, right on schedule. However, I wanted to ask you all a favor.

The other day, I was posting updates to some of my pages and one of them was to my Adventure/Thriller page. When I finished the update, I ran spell checker. Just out of habit, I scrolled to the top of the page and to my horror, I found a whole bunch of typos. I am not that sloppy! Well, I am when I do a draft, but I always clean it up before I post, which I had done when I went live with it.

In this case, instead of typing it all in Word, cleaning it up and pasting it into the page from there, I typed it in freehand, saved it (actually posted it) and came back and made a few tweaks before I made the site live. When I did, I spell checked it and fixed those errors. A few weeks later, maybe a month, I was running through the pages maybe for an update and noticed the errors were back again. I ran the spell checker, found the errors, updated it, closed the page, went back into it again and made sure they took. I assumed they were fixed. Now, here it is several months later and I find they are back and people have been visiting that page and seeing what a rank amateur I am! Aaagh! None of my other pages are having that same issue.

I fixed the typos once again, saved them, went out and back into the page to make sure they took. I don’t trust that page!

As my readers, if any of you spot a typo in one of my pages or on my posts, please let me know so I can fix it. I’d sure appreciate it and I won’t get upset. Sometimes a word might be deliberately spelled wrong for effect, but tell me anyway so I can either fix it or explain why it is spelled that way.

Thanks!

    Welcome to the world of computers. That problem happened to me in my novel that took nerve-wracking time to find and correct. I was insecure after that for quite awhile.
