Editing blogs for grammar

Ok. I get it, I don’t always perfectly proofread my writing when I’m doing a blog. Why, because I am writing off the top of my head about what I am thinking. On top of that I am usually trying to squeeze it into one of the million other things I do throughout the day.  I don’t always have the time to make sure everything is 100% grammatically correct.

If that makes me a bad writer then so be it, but I see the point of the blog to be the content and not the language or grammar usage.  I don’t understand why people would take the time to comment on grammatical mistakes.  Is it to make oneself feel superior or is that the only thing some people read blogs to do, catch writer’s making mistakes.

We are not perfect, and yes, I did go to public school.  Many believe that those of us who attended public school where taught insufficient grammar, and although that may be true in comparison to private schools, we can use correct grammar.  It just wasn’t pounded into our skulls to the extent to make us constantly aware that we have made a mistake.

I guess what I am really trying to get at is this is a college blog, we are focusing on content for our fellow college student’s.  When I am writing I am thinking more about what I am saying than the technical side of my writing.  I hope my readers can excuse me for any silly mistakes I happen to look over, and please keep the comments coming because I love to hear from you guys!!
