At this moment I am struggling to write my true feelings, a mix of sadness and weariness.
Right now I just need to laugh at myself.
Right now I just need to laugh at myself.
Here is a little F.Y.I. if you have never read my blog, if you are a regular you have already figured this out without being told. I am a really bad at spelling and horrible at grammar. In fact I wanted to start a blog for quite awhile but I knew I would have some seriously embarrassing moments because of my struggles with the English language. LOL
So I decided when Jonathan was born I did not really care any more. I mean my journals have been a big mess of spelling and grammatical errors for years. The thing is, no one reads those. Well when I started my blog no one was reading it and I was in to much pain to care even if they were. Then I began to connect with other mommies in blog land and decided I really liked the relationships. Uhhhh one problem, now people other than my family are going to read ALL my mistakes. I really wanted a place to keep my memories and pictures so I decided to swallow my pride.
Often my husband reads my post and corrects them, sometimes they are still wrong even if does :-/ So when I go to push publish it I think,... ohhhhh I know there are so many mistakes wouldn't it be easier and less humiliating to write this stuff in a journal. Then I remember my friends on the computer and all the support I would of missed out on if fear had stopped me. I take a deep breathe and push publish and hope the readers hear my heart and overlook my errors.
I love blogs that are perfectly and beautifully written. When I read a perfect post I think--Oh gosh I could never use words that eloquently and with no mistakes. Some people just have a knack for the English language and communication or they are really well educated! Here are a few of my favorite daily reads that are worthy to be handed in to a college professor.
When these girls leave comment, I gulp and think, oh how embarrassing they read ALL of my mistakes :-/ But I know these girls are not grading my blog but they are listing to my heart, I am so very thankful for that!
SO I want to share some of my worst blonde blogging moments. Some my husband saw. Some I caught after I had posted it. Some I got messages about my mistakes, YIKES! The first is what it was supposed to say the second is what I wrote.
- My husband really loves me.
- My husbands really love me.
Jimmy teased me for days saying things like "Where is the other husband, can he pick up the milk?" :)
- Happy Mother's day MOM
- Happy Mother's may MAN
- My husband is a wonderful Pastor!
- My husband is a wonderful Poker! teeheeehee, this cracks me up!
- I am really blessed with many online friends
- I am really messed with many conline friends
- I have not been very lovable lately
- I have not been very movable lately (this one is funny because it is soooo true)
- This post is just some rambling thoughts running through my head at midnight
- This pot is just some rumbling thoughts running through my lead at midnight
LOL, I will have to save some more bloopers for another post.
Okay, here is the REALLY dumb blonde blogger moment that is not so funny. I have been replying to
no reply-comment@bloggers since I started my blog. Yep I know it is a sad blonde moment. I was thinking how come I never get a response from certain people? Then I tried to send an important email and realized it was a no reply blogger uggggg. I sent a TON of emails that never went anywhere and I did not even know it because they do not send failure demons. I receive comments when someone replies to me because my email is turned on in my profile, so I thought everyone did. If you want to receive comment replies when you leave a comment follow these instructions.
1. Click on the Dashboard link in the upper right hand corner of your screen (or go here).
2. Click on Edit Profile, which is on the left hand side of the screen next to your picture.
3. This will take you to the Edit User Profile screen.
4. Look in the Privacy section.
5. Check the box that says, “Show my e-mail address”.
6. In the Identity section, enter in an e-mail address.
7. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click on Save Profile.
If there is no email in that box or if you don’t have the Show My Email Address box checked. You are a no-reply blogger.

SO there are many replies to all of your comment floating around in cyber space :) REALLY DUMB BLONDE BLOGGER moment!
Then Tuesday I had a really embarrassing one. I did a book review for a Lynette Kraft book, an author I highly respect. I wrote the review then I sent it to my friend Kathy because it was important to me. She is a book review, blogging genius! She made LOTS of corrections and sent it back to me. It was really late when I went to work on it and my mind was numb and foggy. Some of her corrections were in red so I just fixed those and hit publish without even rereading it. I thought wow I did not have that many correction, I am getting better. WRONG! Kathy sent me a text to point out a BIG fat mistake and then I realized I had published without making half the corrections. UGGGGG, at this point there were like 20 comments, ALL ladies I really respect. Also that post was important to me because I LOVED Lynette's book and wanted to do a good job. So I was bummed, then I read through the comments and so many people said they wanted to read her book! Whew, deep breath, I didn't blow it with my serious mess of errors.
I will continue to pour out my heart on a computer and hope the readers will pass over my mistakes and hear my heart. I am literally laughing out loud as I read and reread my post thinking.... thank the Lord I did not hit publish! So if you are reading this, thank you for all your grace and hearing my heart. :)
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter,
and your lips with shouting.
