Random thoughts about roadside art, National Parks, historic preservation, philosophy of technology, and whatever else happens to cross my mind.

A blogging question
Am I the only person who will update posts when/if a typo gets noticed? I'm not in the habit of going back to review my deathless prose, but every so often I'll be scrolling down the page kind of checking to see if any one bothered checking one of the little boxes at the bottoms of posts and a huge honking typo screams at me. Some of the stuff I manage to miss when I'm supposedly proofreading before hitting Publish does not speak well for my copy editing skills. Then again, I always tell people no one can accurately edit themselves: your mind sees what you think you put there and not what your fingers on the keyboard actually did.
I do know most bloggers will fix stuff if a reader points it out, whether it's a factual error or a typing blooper, but that's a little different than being sufficiently anal-retentive to go back and correct minor typos that may have been sitting there for a month without anyone else noticing. Maybe I really do have CDO . . .
