I’m a little embarrassed . . .
. . . but I’m still learning (the hard way, apparently) about blogging and posting information on the internet for all to (hopefully) see.
When I first opened this blog I decided my very first post would be a summary of some helpful information on how to save money pumping gas. I’d read these tips in my local newspaper so I took the info at face value and faithfully reproduced it.
Now I’ve learned that the source of this information is questionable, as is the usefulness of the so-called “tips.” In fact, this very article has been listed on truthorfiction.com as “fiction.” The web site’s page on this article was last updated in November of 2007, so clearly this story has been drifting through the internet for some time.
Whether I have hundreds of people reading my blog or no one at all, I feel it’s my responsibility to post a correction to the previous entry and apologize for not checking my facts further before publishing. I admit it never even crossed my mind to check the veracity of the information — and I’m usually of a more skeptical mind set. All I can say now is, lesson learned!
