Let’s see how I’ve failed: What are some of my blogging mistakes?

Hello!

It’s Monday again, which has now become known as “Confession Monday” because, it seems like Monday has become designated as “feeling expression time”.  I can just tell that I’mma be laughing at myself by the end of the post.

I admit, I’ve made a lot of mistakes over this year. Like A LOT.

The typos and general spelling mistakes have been horrendous and I cringe every time that I see one, and spend about five minutes locating the post and changing it. But my biggest blogging mistake was probably writing the wrong title of a review for a book.

*eep* AWWWWKKKKKWWWWAAAARRRRRRRDDDDDD.

It was written in the frenzy of finishing ACOTAR, and I was so excited to read ACOMAF, that I wrote “A Court Of Mist and Fury Review” rather than “A Court Of Thorns And Roses Review.”

So yeahhhhh that happened…

ALSO (I know, could this  be any more embarrassing?) I also used the wring header image for the post that also said  “A Court Of Mist and Fury” rather than “ACOTAR.”

So that was my biggest mistake, and I didn’t even realise it until MONTHS later.

But, I don’t think that I could have grown from a terrible mistake more than I did from that one. I mean sure, knowing myself all too well, it was bound to happen. I mean, not everyone can achieve such a large c*** up, but hey, now I don’t think that will EVER be happening again. Let’s face it, that’s a “Never Again” kinda moment.



Since then I’ve been way more organised in checking my posts etc, for typos and also when I read what. This is actually super embarrassing.

Let’s talk about some slightly smaller mistakes because that moment was just horrific.

I’m pretty sure that I seemed absolutely horrible in the comments because of my sense of humour (which I need to just calm down with) which I’m sure NO ONE actually understands half of the time.

Also, I think that I hardly communicated with anyone in the beginning, and when I did, used about a million !!!!!!!! and I still do to this day.



So what were some of your blogging mistakes? Let me know!!

Thanks for reading,

  1. I agreed to do that Dream Panel for Everbrite and the chick who asked me micromanaged my post! I put it up and then she asked me to make changes twice! I’ll never be doing something like that again…it’s my blog and I’ll post how I want to! 😂

  2. Hey this is a really honest post – thanks for that. As someone who is just starting out blogging I really appreciate that you are owning up tot the fact that you make spelling, grammar and general mistakes. I think for me the main thing that I wish to improve is my commitment to one post a week. It is definitely something that will be difficult to commit to with uni and two jobs but i’m being optimistic. 🙂

    1. Hi!
      One post a week with all that work load is a great goal! Like how your being optimistic, but also realistic!

  3. I do a weekly meme called The Friday 56 and titled it The Friday 65 once. I use the same format for this post every week and discovered a couple of months ago there was a big grammatical error. This error is present on at least a year’s worth of Friday 56 memes. So…you are by no means alone.

  4. Don’t worry. I forgot to send someone an ATC (artist trading card) in the mail for a month and I forgot to email her. So we’re both awkward. And 99% of the time I get your humor. 😉
