If you show me a page of copy, my eye is like a laser beam--that will automatically pick out any typos or mistakes. Or when I make a mosaic, sometimes there's one little piece that doesn't look right, and I'll rip out a whole section, even though I know nobody but me would ever notice.
My eye for details doesn't apply to most of my life. But that has to be obvious to anyone reading this. Because right here on this blog is a very obvious mistake. Anyone precise and detail-oriented has already noticed what I mean. Go ahead and look. Up at the top of the page. The design doesn't fit around the banner.
It fit at the beginning. But then I changed the page design and I couldn't figure out how to change the banner back. It's been this way for months. You've seen it, I've seen it, everyone has seen it.
It's a technical thing I don't know how to do. So I figured I would temporarily leave the broken banner alone and wait, until I was ready to change the whole design.
This is one of the hallmarks of a procrastinator. I wait, and then I forget about it.
The word "wait" is one of those four-letter words I should never say.
I don't know if this defect detracts from the experience of reading, or if it offends anyone who has obsessive compulsive disorder. Since it's my blog and I'm an artist, even though I haven't done anything about it, I'm sure it bothers me more than it bothers anyone else.
I''m not sure it does bother anyone else. If you subscribe to the blog by email, you don't even know what I'm talking about.
In fact,for almost six months, NO ONE has ever mentioned this to me. Which makes me kind of wonder why I'm pointing it out now.
