I mentioned in one of my comments exactly where I think I may be heading with my little corner of the blogosphere.

I've been thinking of continuing to make material, refine my work through the encouragement and feedback from all of you, and then releasing my work to a wider audience. You may wonder why I choose some of the topics that I do, considering much of it should be well known within this community, well this is why. I'm thinking about the future and working on things I think I may want to take with me on my journey through life.

I am currently working on What is Science? (Can Science be a religion) Part 2 -Evidence- so please stay tuned :)

I hope you all enjoy.

and thank you all!

That's really interesting. I loved reading and writing. I was taught by sounding out words. And I always struggled with spelling, however my manner of speaking and writing was highly rigid. I was very precise in my application of grammar at all times. Unfortunately this caused a rift between myself and my peer groups (I don't call them peers as it would seem I was forced into peer groups I did not being, which explains a lot). I would often be told I sounded like an encyclopedia, or that I always sounded like I was reading a script. I worked very hard to fix this in order to fit in. As a result I've gotten quite rusty. Also spell check and grammar check are tools of laziness. They intend to help but in the end they seem to foster sloppiness instead. Add to that is always a challenge to critically assess your own wiring. For these reasons I always prefer to work with others and enlist their aid in spotting errors.

Spelliing is quite a nightmare in English. Research has found that kids who try to spell by sounding out letters don't do as well as kids who try to spell by visualizing the letters. George Bernard Shaw has a famous example of the inconsistency. If you take gh as in laugh, o as in women, and ti as in information, "fish" could be spelled "ghoti."

At one time I was quite rock solid when dealing with grammar (spelling, not so much lol). However I'm painfully out of practice, so your reminder is quite helpful :)

Of course I don't take offense. Thank you, I'll make sure to take a look.

BenGee - since you asked, don't take offense if I point out something about apostrophes. They have two purposes, to show possession [my friend's book] and to stand in for missing letters in a contraction [It's  instead of it is, can't instead of cannot]. They're never used to indicate a plural form and they're never used before the "s" on the third person singular form of a verb. [It takes a village.]

I think I've now gone through and cleaned up every past post for grammar and readability (Pretty sure I didn't miss any). If anyone feels so inclined feedback is still welcome, especially anyone who would like to point out any errors.

Thanks Thomas, I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for :)

From my limited perspective I think it take's a lot of introspection to know yourself well, and sometimes a lot of hardship to find those convictions and passions most important to you. Searching is the key, so it sounds like you're on the right track.
