I set up this blog on Friday. Saturday, I receive a link from Jeff Jarvis. To be honest, the blog is no where near ready for prime time. I posted a few times to see that all was working, and those posts were done quickly and late at night. As I IM’ed with a good buddy, I was throwing postings up without any regard to spelling or grammar.
I mean, who in the world will see it. THE SITE WAS ONLY 8 HOURS OLD!!! (It had been up a year ago, but dead for a long, long time.)
A good liberal linked to me, pointing out my spelling errors and labeled me work “borderline illiteracy” . I deserved that. The work was not my best. The concepts I am fully behind, however the craftsmanship was lacking.
This is a warning to future bloggers. When you put up a project on the internet, be ready for anything. It was great to see my name up in lights at Jeff’s sight, it was a wee bit embarrassing to see spelling errors. And in the future, everything will be spell checked.
But it was nice to see my weblog in the bright lights of Buzzmachine.
Also, I need to get RSS working with this theme in WordPress 1.5. Otherwise Robert Scoble will be very angry with me. I like the geeks and the political junkies.
[UPDATE] The liberal who blasted me had a very good excuse. He is a Marxist, Ex professor who received Ph.D. in English Lit from Yale University. Obviously, my writing style was not up to the task. That is a profile guaranteed to passionately dislike anything I write.
