Blogging Bloopers. Do You Have Any?

Let’s face it, blogging bloopers happen to all of us.

No matter how careful we are, no matter how many times we proof read, sometimes we slip up.

Right? Please tell me I’m not alone here.


Sometimes I think I am the queen of blogging bloopers. They happen to me all the time and I am left banging my head against the computer desk.


Here are some blogging bloopers that I am known for:


Some of my regular blogging bloopers are typos.

Even with spell check, I still manage to make countless errors.

Take my post the other day about How I Trained My Dogs To Pee In A Bowl.

I spelled pepper wrong. Peeper is what came out.

One of my Twittter buddies called me out on it and I just laughed. I decided to leave it because, well……  peeper worked  in the post too. We were talking about pee and peppers so peeper is now a new pepper hybrid.

Bobby is another one that fumbles me up. Booby is sometimes what comes out and I don’t catch it. Yes I call my son a Booby, but not on purpose. Caren from Dakota’s Den called me out on that one and of course I immediately changed it.

There and their is another one that hangs me out to dry too. Obviously I know the difference but sometimes my fingers are faster than my eyes and I  just don’t catch it for a few days after the post is live. It’s embarrassing because most of you have already read it and just chalked it up to another typo of mine.

Chose and Choose. Seriously what was I doing in grade school?

Sherman’s registered name is The Chosen One. That is how I figure it out, Sherman is not The Choosen One. So therefore my choice now is to choose, because that is what I chose to do. Ha!

I will not ever be able to repeat that.

Titles and tags.

My blogging bloopers aren’t confined to just typos either. A few times I have forgotten to title my post. I remember seeing it one time in my blog feed and I was like, WTH?  Who stole my title? Oops. My bad.

Tagging gets me a lot too., but WP is making it a lot easier, when I remember. I think I need an alarm to go off when I forget tags. TAGS!TAGS!TAGS!

Blog Hops

Blog Hops are another blooper of mine. More than my fair share of times I have entered a blog hop more than once because I got a little too excited with my enter key. There’s my blog. Twice. Just making sure you didn’t miss it.


Comments are another big blooper of mine. Sometimes I just type to fast hit enter and then notice my error. Wait! Come back here comment! Then I have to go in and type another comment with an apology. I’m sorry if I have ever done this on your blog!

In my defense, I am a blooper in everyday life too. My day is filled with bloopers all the time. Everyday. Just ask my husband.

So tell me, am I alone in the world of blogging bloopers or do you have some too? Please share.

You know the Copyblogger post just out about getting enough sleep so your posts makes sense? That's me, not enough sleep - often a 4 or 5 in the morning problem, I once wrote a first sentence that contradicted itself. The first sentence - logging is nothing if not humbling! Oh, and there was the word "public" where the keys on my laptop were starting to stick and not type...guess which letter didn't make it;) I think I got a lot of hits on that one for all the wrong, no - it's not just you =)

I think that is my biggest problem! I mostly blog and write a lot of my posts at night, sometimes barely able to keep my eyes open! That is hilarious about the public typo! I can so see something like that happening to me.! LMAO!

LOL Everybody does it ... and not just bloggers! I know stories of newspapers having to be pulled off the stands because some major bloopers (back in my old country)

I remember a phone book where mid way through there were several pages from an old west novel. Pretty funny for the phone book reader, not so funny for the novel reader missing a part of the story to phone listings!


Sunday 22nd of July 2012

I have read a few magazine and newspaper typos before-not many but a few, and I am always wondering how they slipped through! I can't believe a phone book had part of a novel in it! That is too funny!

Its pretty terrifying to see all the mistakes I've made. I've only been called out once, but I think its just because no one is reading. Great photos make for a good distraction :)


Sunday 22nd of July 2012

That's right! The beautiful photos are a great distraction on your site! I bet no one even sees a typo there!

Oh yes, that happens here too. The worst is a typo in a video because to fix it means going back and re-editing, re-posting, bah, forget about it. Mostly people read as fast as we type so they see the right word due to context (at least I hope so).

I don't do many videos here but if I did I know I have those kind of typos too!

Oh my...sometimes I think Kol's Notes s one big blooper reel. I detest it! I bought a laptop with one of those flat keyboards and I think my typing went to H-E-double hockey sticks in a hand basket. LOL, typos GALORE and then if I happen to be a little sleepy when I edit, sometimes I'll make it even that time I wrote an entire post about "senior dogs", misspelled it as senor, then let the spell check change it all to "Señor".


Sunday 22nd of July 2012

LOL! I don't think I have ever seen a typo on your blog either! and here I thought it was just me! That is too funny about senior being Senor!
