The Importance of Proofreading

I don’t claim to be an engaging writer. I claim to be a mostly competent writer. Then I read drivel like this from my last post:

The fact that we share a cell phone and me having an iPhone that spends all day in the diaper bag and/or Kate’s purse kind of defeats the point for me.

Ew. Really? I re-read all my posts before I publish them. How in the world did that pass muster? Fortunately, in the ever-changing medium that is the web, I can sit down the next morning, realize my temporary insanity, and change it to something like this:

Kate and I share a cell phone. That means my fictitious iPhone would spend all day in the diaper bag and/or Kate’s purse. Doesn’t that defeat the point?

Proofreading is good.
