Thursday Thoughts: The Messed Up Blog Post

~What happens when you work for hours and hours to perfect your blog post and then screw it up anyways?

This unfortunate circumstance has happened to me time and time again; the continuous read overs through each paragraph correcting one or two words at a time. The long pause when finishing a sentence and then deleting the entire thing because it sounds weird. Then that last correction after spell check says you have written everything in a passive voice or that you have just used a handful of clichés. cliché…

Then you ask yourself, “Can I even write!?”

Finally, you think that you have perfected each and every part of your post and you hit that dreaded Publish button and it only takes an entire day to realise that you have completely screwed up the title. THE TITLE!

The most important part of the post is ruined 😦

Everyone sees it. You manage to get the likes and a few more views, but the horror still lingers in your belly. You fix the link in your Facebook feed and you correct the Permalink in the post so that fewer people notice that you have messed up.

Oh, the horror… the messed up blog post.

So what happens? Nothing. Nothing at all. Life goes on as does the blog. It’s a learning experience I guess.

Try not to beat yourself up. Correct, move on and grow. 🙂

(I’m taking my own advice on this one)

  1. I’ve always wondered what Permalink was for. I still don’t know but you’re the first person i’ve heard use it. I’ve had blogging boo boo’s too. But like you I keep going. We learn from our mistakes. Right. . .

    Great post.

    • Yes definitely! The Permalink is the link in which people can find your post in a search engine. If you change your title and don’t change it in the Permalink, it won’t match and it’s harder to find. I didn’t know that for the longest time. Thanks for feedback 🙂
