I stand to be corrected...i'm not perfect

I was just reading my comments because I always do...I'm like to read other peoples responses to what I write. Someone corrected me because I called the after funeral gathering "repass". OOPS....this anonymous person corrected me it's "repast". This got me thinking........

The reason I started this "blog" thing is because I enjoy reading other peoples blogs...so after a few months of "blog-surfing" I decided to give it a try. I know i'm not the best at spelling and grammar but i'm real...I never claimed to be a writer either...I never use spell check or anything like that....

I guess what i'm trying to say in the kindest way I know how is....Why do folks feel the need to correct other peoples shit? If I wanted to mispell every fucking word here, would anonymous have a fit? Going through with a fine tooth comb....

Over the past few weeks I have seen a couple of my favorite bloggers be corrected/criticized and ripped a new asshole in the comment section........sad....

LIGHTEN UP PEOPLE!!! This is supposed to be fun!
Maybe i'm blowing it out of proportion but when I read that comment it really got me thinking............Maybe it's the blue razzberry martini's i'm having....LOL

I'm not here to make enemies.....I would never correct anyones post...but hey,

Bump those folks. There is no perfection in life, and that includes blogging. It's our imperfections that make us unique.

Nikki said it best...Fukk them... there's one person's blog that I refuse to go to now because of this issue... That person is always trying to pick an arguement and talks mad shit! This is supposed to be fun and therapy for our souls to get through whatever we're going through... So you go wit ur bad self, don't trip off of anonymous! and @ anonymous, you don't even have the balls to put ur name up there with your perfect ass...
Sorry didn't mean to go off! I just hate that! :)

....*smh*.....

I knew it wouldn't be long before someone did a write up about this....lol

I am cosigning on what Nikki and Coley said....this blog is YOUR space to make all the grammatical errors you see fit...as long as you get your point across....thats all that matters!!!

Some people take this blogging shyt way too seriously. It's my personal belief that those kind of people have no real lives outside of this internet shyt. Bless their hearts.

This is your space. Tend to it the way you please.

I have one question??? Did that person know what you meant??? That is all that matters is that your point gets across. YOUR point, YOUR Blog, Your grammar. :)
Playing the devil's advocate...maybe the person wasn't trying to be mean, just givng out friendly ....Forget it! I agree! hehehe!

It just gets under my skin because this is supposed to be "fun" The interactions between strangers,talking about issues that we can "all" relate to... I have seen so much negative shit in peoples comment section....SHEESH!! Can't we all just get along? I'm just trying to spread a lil LUV!!! I'm not an aspiring writer,poet or artist...i'm just a momma/nurse/friend trying to survive....

"blue razzberry martini's" ... Mmmm.. I'll have to remember to try that one.

Ditto to what everyone has said. This is YOUR spot to do as YOU please.

I think people that comment on what they percieve to ne a spelling or grammar error on someones blog are flipping control freaks. Block em! No one needs that negativity that they bring.

Fugg 'em. As a writer, my blog is one of the few places I can write and spell anyway I please. I dare somebody to come by and tell me otherwise. I'll be ripping them another . . . yeah, one of those.

Keep being real. I ain't interested in reading the make-believe when I blog hop.

the classier move would have been a private email, if it bothered them that damn much. if you take on a mission to right every wrong you see on a frickin blog, you REALLY gotta get a damn clue..one of my first comments on my new blog was rude and pissed me off soo bad! I know I gotta get a thicker skin but STILL doesn't excuse people from being an azz in your space...it's like coming into your house and leaving a pile of pooh...just tacky! end of rant...sorry lil mama..I will keep reading, regardless!

You're right. I've experienced the same thing. Wonder why people want to correct and debate with someone about their own personal private feelings and thoughts? Bugs the Princess to no end!

Hey Dee,
I saw the repass/repast thing in your comments. Who gives a rat's ass how it's spelled. They could have left that crap alone and atleast showed some respect to you after losing your grandma. Sheesh! See, that's why folks go "anonymous" with that crap. I write what I want on my damn blog and spell it the way I want. If I misspell something I wish a n**ga WOULD try to correct me. Piece o' crap. Sorry, I just have issues girl. :-)

Blogger Diva said...

Wait...one more thing...if you do want to correct me, say "Hey Diva, I think it's actually repast instead of repass". See, that works for me.

Girl dont sweat the small stuff! I am with Nikki on imperfections make us unique. That just shows how miserable some people are.

U TELL EM, DIVA!

the same thing happened to me, in a comment box. this dude was struggling in school so i put in quotation....

"without struggle, there is no progress"

i did not sign it or anything. i just posted that a wise person said it to make the blogger feel better.

this asshole posted after my post that it was fredrick douglas and that i plagerised.

YOUR BLOG IS YOURS TO DO WHAT U PLEASE!!!

Blue raspberry martinis! Share that recipe!

People like anon need to go F themselves. Who cares but them if something is spelled "wrong". If all they have time for is to correct people's grammar on the internet(s), more power to them. Maybe it's like a retired 78 year old English teacher or something. Bwah!

Thanks you guys.....All of you...I like the positive support....

This "blog thing" is supposed to be fun right?

Anonymous Nati said...

I TOTALLY agree!! I oft times misspell words when I blog or just on the internet in general and I don't care. I am an excellent speller in real life and on my job (where it counts) when I'm chilling on the internet, I'm too busy trying to get all my thoughts out to worry about spelling etc. Shake em off girl! ;)

"Save all the hatin and the poppin shawty you don't know me"

For real great post, cause I have had to speak my peace on my blog to. It is what it is. MY FUDGEPUCKIN BLOG!

Blogger Zantiferous3 said...

ROFLMAO I only correct my shit and one other person's... only because they are a writer and I figure they'd want to know... LOL

But other than that... I never do.

Some people just live to be THE ONE. In this instance... it's "the one" to show you the right way to spell, say... some meaningless shit. Take it in stride girlfriend...

Oh and why was the first thing I thought about commenting on was how DAMN good a blue raspberry martini sounds!!! Does that mean I have a problem? LOL
