Grammar and spelling mistakes in formal writing bug me. If somebody is going to put something out there, some writing that is supposedly well-polished, it should conform to our language's conventions, right?
And then I spotted it. A grammar error. Right in the first paragraph.
Cringe. Sigh. Repeat.
Yes, repeat. I know I'll probably do it again. Even on this blog, an outlet I consider less formal, I've probably already made tons of mistakes I didn't intend.
So on I'll continue, perhaps a little more careful about editing and definitely less likely to criticize when I read somebody else's mistake.
