During my lunch I did some browsing around and I found a really nice proof reader that has a plugin for WordPress tied into Jetpack. Not only does it exist for WordPress though but someone created a plugin for Live Writer.
I know more often than not my writing leaves something to be desired. This I attribute to the fact that my brain will mentally fill in words that are missing when I wrote it. It usually takes at least 24 hours before my brain will actually catch missing material. That’s a bit of a problem with how fast some information flows within the blogosphere. I don’t exactly have an editor to proof my work before I hit the submit button. Hopefully this will help with some of those deficiencies.
My brain is actually really good at filling in other people’s mistakes. I have to seriously slow down my reading to catch mistakes.
In other news a couple of weeks ago I finally ditched the big beard since summer was finally showing up. Normally I go bald specifically because I’m already bald on the top of the head anyway so I might as well just embrace it.
This limits my ability to have the big fat beard, which I do enjoy though it does make soup a serious pain. It just looks weird being bald and having a big bushy beard. Also it’s really hot during summers out here and it’s just not necessary.
Now normally I go with what some would call the JayG look, bald and goatee, but that’s relatively common and frankly I just like being different. So instead I’ve gone with the below.
With the hat on:
With the hat off.
I still have the beard, doesn’t look scroungy, and still allows me to be intimidating if necessary.
So what say you? Should I just go back to the goatee, or keep the trimmed line running back?
