Dear Autocorrect and Food Friday Linky Party?

In case you don’t follow me on Instagram {evystree}, I thought I would fill you in on the craziness that went on over there on Wednesday. Yes, I have issues with autocorrect. UGH.

I started out ok, but HUH? “I SOY evys tree!!” oh boy. I was supposed to say SPY. As in I SPY Evy’s Tree. Good grief. Thankfully I took 4 years of Spanish so I can at least say I know what SOY means…however it is completely NOT what I meant here.

And then a few seconds later I post this puppy

Right. A “Jensen” skirt? ha. To answer @iluvmy2sonz… I have no idea what a Jensen skirt is. I know what a jean skirt is, but not a jensen. If anyone knows please enlighten me.

So I posted those and had no idea what I said until after church Wednesday night when I was browsing instagram and realized what I had done. I was just going to type an explanation under each picture when my dear friend Heidi texted me this:

Well, there you go. So I posted that on Instagram as my explaination. Unfortunately nobody liked it or thought it was funny. I guess I’m the only one who’s autocorrect hates them. So here’s what I have to say to autocorrect:

“Dear Autocorrect, Please stop changing words without my permission. If it is spelled wrong please leave it. I may want it to be spelled wrong, but regardless, nobody wants things changed without their knowledge. Also, please stop turning hoodies into goodies. You should know by now that I use the word hoodies daily, I use goodies NEVER. Thank you, Amy”

And I have been told you can turn off autocorrect, so I will be figuring that one out once I am done with this post.

So Food Friday…let’s talk about it. I love doing Food Friday. It makes me cook more and also helps me become more creative. In case you are new to our blog, Food Friday is where I share a favorite recipe of mine, or maybe a new food tip, or perhaps a new restaurant I have tried and love.

You want to know something crazy? Anytime I meet someone new and find out they read my blog, they ALWAYS say to me…. “Please don’t stop Food Friday, I love them and they help so much!” I hear that especially from the new wives and new mothers out there. Well, I started thinking about back when I was newly married and I remembered how I felt I needed a bunch of recipes…how I felt I was clueless as to what to cook and how I really wished someone would pretest a recipe for me so I wouldn’t have to waste good money on trying it myself. So I had an idea….

Why not make Food Friday a linky party? In case you have never participated in one…a linky party is when a blog post is opened up and you can add your link that is related to the blog post. It creates a bunch of thumbnails of great blog posts all related to the subject of the original blog post {not sure I’m making much sense! ha}. Anyway, I thought it would be so cool if weekly we got together and shared all our recipes. You can catalog it right here under the Food Friday posts and give other people a chance to hop over to your blog and try out your recipe. You could either link up your Food Friday post that you published on Friday, or you could link up a food blog post you did throughout the week, either way! Can you imagine all the great recipes we’d have access to?

So I think this coming week we’ll give it a whirl. Would love to know your thoughts? If you are interested in participating, grab a Food Friday button and add it either to a post on food sometime this week or a Food Friday post on Friday and link up next week! I hope to have my Food Fridays finished and scheduled to post at 12:01 AM on Friday mornings. :)

So talk to me! What do you think??

Big hugs friends! xoxo

    Amy – I laughed out loud (literally) when I saw the pic of your auto-correct note. Sorry I didn’t comment or “like”, but I was just skimming FB at that time. :)

    RE: Food Friday – I LOVE IT !!!! Please don’t stop! I have used several of your recipes (and I always give you credit for any success)! I don’t have a blog so I don’t think the link thingy would work for me – but please don’t stop doing Food Friday! :)

    LOVE YOU SO MUCH ! I really admire and respect you!

    I HATE Autocorrect ! But in general – I despise ANY piece of electronic equipment which thinks it is smarter than me. I am the human here!!!

    So – every time I get a new phone the FIRST thing I do is turn off Autocorrect. And – if I get a chance – I turn off Autocorrect on my husband’s phone too.

    Thanks Amy for the wonderful laugh to start off my Monday. You are incredible! Keep up the good work!!!

    It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it’s
    time to be happy. I have read this post and if
    I could I want to suggest you some interesting things or tips.

    Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I wish to read even more things about it!
