Do you suffer from PMP?
And it’s embarassing:
The missing links.
The misspelled words.
And worst of all: no tags or categories so strangers can find my posts!
I’m talking about PreMature Posting. It happened to me just this week. My musical post appeared a few days earlier than expected. I thought I was all hot because I’d written my post days early. I was ready to go! I thought I’d be all “in the moment” and schedule it for Friday morning as usual. I figured I’d come back to it later to finish it off.
Big mistake – I missed poorly spelled words and I’d used passive voice all over the place! Plus, no links to all those musicians I wanted to support.
“So what’s the cure?” you ask. “Double-check your work? Set the alarm for midnight Friday morning and click publish then?”
Hell-to-the-no! I’m just gonna roll with it because, let’s face it, the post came early….
…but you still liked it.
