I hardly see that small typo as a "FAIL!". For many bloggers, blog posts
are not meant to be perfect prose, but something that is dashed off between
numerous obligations. I am sure there are many imperfections in my own blog
posts, but the important thing is that they convey information about
subjects that I consider interesting. If I demanded my blog posts (which
are not about technical writing) be perfect, I would never publish
anything, as timeliness is key to what I post about. The content of the
posted blog post, and the fact that she posted it, is more important than
the error you found.
