Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

Question... does this look unedited?

I realize that I'm the worst self-editor in the world. It is nigh-impossible for me to see my own typos, because my brain just fills in what I meant. I KNOW what I meant to say.

So I fire off these little posts without rereading them, and while looking at my blog later, I see egregious mistakes, and then go back and edit them.

My question is posed to you all out there who use auto-readers, which collect posts from your favorite blogs for you to read in a digest daily: does your reader show the edited update, or does it show the original, typo-riddled post?

Here. We'll try an experiment. When I hit "publish" originally for this post, the word after this paragraph will say, in capital letters, "damaged." I will wait a few minutes, and edit it to read "fixed." Tell me what your reader shows you. Thanks.

FIXED

"Fixed", and only that version of the new post, if I understand you correctly.

I stopped re-reading my old posts, partially for that reason. I'd never finish, if I kept correcting all the errors...

I use Bloglines.com to "collect" the blogs I want to read daily and the posts I have today from you, Mr. Matt G., says, "Fixed."

I hope that helps.

My RSS reader (Ilium Newsbreak for Windows Mobile) is showing FIXED at the end ... but that may be due to the fact that it was edited so shortly after the inital posting.

If you want, adjust this entry again in a few days and let's see what happens. You can send me a private email at "ron dot king at gmail dot com" after you do it so I can see if I get a correction after the fact. I have some sites I follow that when an entry is edited it shows back up as unread later ... but that may be something related to the method the RSS feed is being built on the originator's side.
