When This Blonde Didn't Proofread First...

January 25, 2011

There are many rules to follow in life. Don't drink and drive, for example. In the blogging world there's an important rule: Don't post it without proof reading it! Leave it to me to forget this rule! So, without further ado, here is my latest blonde moment for you all.

I recently put up my review for a book, The Luxe, I loved. I loved the book so much I couldn't wait to share my thoughts on it. Yeah... I totally forgot to proof read it prior to posting it. Now, I've done this numerous times with no problem. However, this one had a problem: I GOT THE MAIN CHARACTER'S NAME WRONG!!!! How I pulled that off I don't know, but I did. Instead of using the character's real name, Elizabeth, I kept referring to her by her sister's name, Diana. I didn't even notice my massive error until a comment was posted pointing it out to me.

And there it is my readers: Never blog without proofreading. May this put a little smile on your face. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to proof read this before posting it.

Oh I did this too. I got the location wrong for a book I LOVED and I knew the correct location - not even sure why I said the wrong (& it was important to the story) one but the author caught it. Embarrasing. Luckily she had a good sense of humor about it.

Karen- Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one to make a goof like this. Thanks for commenting. I'd like to say I won't make this mistake again, but it may. Lol

Don't worry, it happens to us all. Sometimes I'm in a rush, don't proofread my review and notice later on what mistakes I made. To err is human, I say.:)
