On my post “A Dozen Stupid//Fun Things To Do When Your Bored” I misspelled a lot of words including in the title.
(I wrote Board instead of Bored, your instead of you’re) it prompted a couple of people to write some disrespectful comments.
I welcome your feedback after all I want my blog to be easily comprehended. But It would have been a lot more thoughtful to send me your suggestions in an Email, rather than expressing them publicly on my blog.

As for Marjorie’s comment about my “unschooled background” I am proud to be unschooled. I think it’s a remarkable way to raise children; it gives them the chance to follow their passion and in doing that zero in on their life’s work at a really young age. One of things about unschooling that frightens most people is that their children’s passion might not include math or grammar.
In my experiences if your kid’s having a really hard time reading, buy him or her a Gameboy and Pokemon game. They will have to learn to read to play the game. The point is if you really need to know something you will want to learn it so you can get on with your life.
I am an extremely visual thinker and I feel much more comfortable with images than words.
I have always struggled with spelling and grammar. In fact I would never write because it would upset me too much to see my primitive handwriting and poor spelling.
(powered by Spellcheck) I decided to start my own blog.
It has been about a year since I started this WordPress blog and it has been a wonderfully empowering experience!
I’ve challenged myself to write regularly. In the process I’ve learned a lot and created something I’m really proud of!
I am still learning so if you notice a mistake it’s ok to let me know privately at firstname.lastname@example.org
I started writing because I was sick of limiting myself, by being afraid to make mistakes.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
