My Third WordPress Anniversary!

I’ve been on here for three years! I can’t believe it. ๐Ÿ˜€ In celebration, I wanted to reshare a few “third” things. Firstly, Seeds was my third post on this blog. Secondly, He Saves was my third poem.ย  Thirdly, Perseverance was my first photography type post.

I found this in my drafts from back in 2016 and thought I’d share for the occasion. I laughed at myself from 3 years ago. I don’t think I kept up with adding to it for the past two years. Hope you enjoy the humor!

Auto-correct and I have a very interesting relationship. Most of the time, itโ€™s helpful and fixes my typos for me or suggests what I was trying to type when I really wreck the spelling of the word.

However, every once in a while, it turns against me and โ€œfixesโ€ something that wasnโ€™t broken to start with; or I’m in a hurry, so I go ahead and choose the first word that it offers me without really reading it first. Whoops. I thought it might be fun to collect some of these mistakes that I caught and fixed before publishing and make a post about it. Some of them are really crazy. XD

From Follow Your Heartโ€ฆ?: โ€œNo, this isnโ€™t about the song in Disneyโ€™s Mulligan soundtrack. XDโ€ The movie has nothing to do with stew or golf; itโ€™s Mulan.

From The Season for Grace review: โ€œTheir backstrokes were so touching.โ€ This novel is set during the fall and winter. Nobody was swimming so elegantly that it was touching. No, it was their backstories that I found touching.

From The Liebster Award: โ€œโ€ฆChristian Dustpan Young Adult novelโ€ฆโ€ Uh, no. Just no. How would one even write a dustpan?ย  o_O I wrote the first draft of a Christian Dystopian Young Adult novel. (It also wanted to replace โ€œLiebsterโ€ with โ€œLobsterโ€ or โ€œBlisterโ€, but I digress.)

From By Perseverance…: “Here is one of my favorite quotes by Charles Surgeon…” Charles was not in the medical field. It also tried to replace Spurgeon with Sturgeon; Charles was not a fish either. His name is Spurgeon. I’m actually quite surprised that autocorrect wasn’t familiar with his name. o_O

And speaking of theย  o_O (the shotcut to get this emoji o_O ), Microsoft Word wanted to make my cringing face into an โ€œodorโ€ or an โ€œoboeโ€. Please. That doesnโ€™t even make sense.

Not even the Bible is exempt from the autocorrectโ€™s clutches. In my post, Seeds, I quoted Matthew 13:3: โ€œBehold, a sewer went forth to sowโ€ฆโ€ **bangs head on desk** Sower. A person who sows seeds. I thought sower was a known word, so I don’t have any idea where that one came from… Word can be so oblivious sometimes.ย  XD

And there we go. Hope you enjoyed my adventures with auto-correct. ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow. I barely even remember writing this. XD

On another note, I’m working on posts for this week – finally getting back into posting a bit more often. I also looking forward to catching up with you all! โค I’m so behind in reading your posts. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
