Nodding Off While Blogging

It happened again.

Earlier today my wife asked if I had been falling asleep while writing my blog last night, because there were several typos.

I told her that I had, and so I went back to look at what I had done. Here are some examples:

  • “I felt it had loste, the Internet was some of its appeal”
  • “o I decided to see if I could find some new jokes realted to teh noble”
  •  “I just took at the jokes”

That’s pretty bad, and it shows what can happen when it is 11:30 at night, you want to keep your consecutive blog streak going (now at over 900 straight days), and you are completely exhausted.

This is the second time this has happened in the past three weeks, and I’m sure a major reason is my calc class; it has taken up an amazing amount of time and energy. The good news for me, and any grammarians out there, is that my final is on Tuesday.

I’m not saying that the content of my posts is going to get any better, or that future posts will be error free, but hopefully I can find time to work on the blog when I am more awake.

There has been one benefit from falling asleep while working on my blog – I can now better empathize with my readers.

P.S. I don’t think I’ll go back and edit last night’s blog; I’ll keep it up there as a reminder to do a better job…
