Words fail me


I have a confession… I am feeling a teensy bit of pride. Pride is something I feel very uncomfortable with – it was considered a lowly, dishonourable trait by most of my family. But I’ve heard on the grapevine, feeling a sense of pride in yourself can be a good thing – just don’t let it go to your head and spill over into a cascade of arrogance.

I have been writing in this blog for a year or so now, and every now and then I get asked to share something with another website. Mostly I send off posts I’ve written here and they edit them (generating a whole pile of typos in the process) then publish. But a couple of times I’ve been asked to write original things that aren’t in my blog – and so I do. And it makes me feel happy. And a little bit proud.

So I thought I would share links to the original pieces I was asked to write 🙂

And then sometimes my blog posts get edited and published like these 🙂

And of course sometimes other bloggers stumble upon me and for whatever reason, they reblog my posts – without editing 🙂

I know I mentioned the editing thing a few times… But it really bugs me when I send something off with no typing errors and they modify the content to suit their website (absolutely fine and totally expected!) then add in a pile of errors. I wish there was an option to let me read the copy before print. The little OCD perfectionist that resides inside my heart is not happy with its/it’s/its’ errors appearing under my name.

Aside from these little technicalities… I am very chuffed my words have meaning to others 🙂
