I'm a stickler.
Apparently I stickle.
That's what I was informed of by the Eats, Shoots & Leaves quiz.
I am OK with this. It's not bad to be a stickler when it comes to punctuation, grammar and spelling, and I got 100% on the quiz.
It's not totally inherent, to be sure. When I am working quickly, hammering out a post in a few free moments, a "to" instead of a "too" will slip by, or a "your" instead of a "you're". That's out of working quickly, rather than not knowing any better.
Which is probably worse when you think about it - committing an error I know better than to do. For example, you'd never ever EVER catch me saying that I "should of" done something. I hate that one over all. So why is it OK for me to make the random mistake?
Because I'm human I guess, and I know that with some extra time and care, it could be perfect. It's something to strive for, and an easy one, too. I'll save that goal for when I'm really down on myself. For now, I've got other stuff to strive for, so I'm not "to" worried about the grammar and punctuation in this blog.
At any rate, you can take Truss' test here. And if you haven't read Eats, Shoots & Leaves, you should.
And yes, we're back from Austin and SXSW. I have some photos and stuff to share for sure, but I've got to work on this site first.
