From the blogging Mayoress…

Mary Reid of Kingston upon Thames to be precise, who highlights a few glaring mistakes in a pitch for an online proof reading service. Good to see more public representatives getting into blogging (still not one of our public reps have set up their own blogs in NI, despite obvious blogging champions in the Republic and Britain). But I wish Mary would get someone to sort out her dodgy permalinks.

    Perhaps you meant “to be precise” rather than “to be precises”, but I still don’t understand what you meant – was that link supposed to go to Damien Blake’s website and what does it have to do with online proofreading?

  • Mick Fealty

    I’ll start again. I’ve slightly amended it. Hope that covers it better. The second line begins, ‘good to see public representatives, etc. etc..’

    Mary isn’t the only one with dodgy links. From what I see the link which I presumed would take me to her site takes me to Damien Blake’s site (also linked where it more obviously should be later in the story).

    Need a proof reader Mick?

    Limps off red faced… no real defence on my part, but it took me so long* to track down the actual url of the page, that my brain had clearly wandered on to the next thing before pasting it in…

    *three clicks actually, which doesn’t sound a lot but a single permalink gets you there in one… can’t for the life of me think why the designer left it our since it is a standard component of most off-the-shelf software packages… try hitting the permalink button at the bottom of the page and then look at the url in the browser?

  • Thanks for all the links, Mick!

    Don’t these ads for proof readers always have a few deliberate mistakes for respondents to spot?

    Well I think IJP should have a blog. He writes very well, is can be very thought provoking. He also is aware of the technology which is an advantage!

  • A DUP Democratic Unionist Podcast would be good, with words from Big Ian and songs from Wee Willie McCrea. Did I hear someone shout Never, Never, Never!?

  • Green Ink

    Tut, tut Mick. It’s D’oh.

  • Mick Fealty

    Don’t for get to close your italics… D’oh!

  • Green Ink

    I asked for that!

  • Pete Baker

    *ahem*

    let’s try that again
