How Embarrassing

I wrote an article on debt elimination late last night. I did a lot of cutting and pasting. When I went back to re-proof this morning. It made absolutely no sense to me. I had paragraphs pasted two and three times and pasted in the wrong places. I even had a sentence fragment. I'm so embarrassed. If you read that article and pass me in the hall today, pretend like you don't know me, and I'll do the same.

My head is swimming after correcting it. I've got to go over it again today.

I saw nothing, I say nothing, not a thing.  

That's happened to me.  I can't tell you how many times I've rearranged my modules in haste and then had a similar experience. 

It happens or then again I saw nothing, I know nothing...Embarassed

Now I feel better knowing that I'm not the only one that's done that. Thanks Sam. That makes me feel better.

Don't worry, Brenda, it happens! At least you fixed it quickly :)

I recently went back to update the earliest articles I made here and was horrified at how awful they looked - must have been me getting used to playing with the layout on Wizzley. They'd been up for months!

It's just not possible to try and be perfect all the time.

I've had the same experience, I thought who's been sneaking into my account making such awful wizzes..... Oh what we learn in no time

 Thank you all for sharing this. I was feeling bad about one of my first articles here that needed to be 'returned to me for editing'. I think I got so carried away with all the different layout options that I forgot to read it through before pushing the publish button.

I'm going to go back and look at all of my articles to make sure I don't have any other ghastly mistakes. It's funny how you can proof read your work and your eyes just slide over horrible mistakes. Putting your work away and coming back later makes a big difference.
