Part of my job is to send out news releases and update our university Web site with said press releases. Naturally, not all the news we receive is “earth-shattering,” but we still want it out there, so we have a section for briefs, or “Newsmakers" (see red circled part).
I was typing up a particular Newsmaker about our English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta, and I typed in a short headline, which is not shown on the Newsmaker portion but will help me find the brief if necessary. I hit submit, and it went online.
On the wrong part.
Instead of putting it in the Newsmaker column to the right, I put it right under, “News at University.” Okay, not so bad, really, right?
Uh…except for the headline.
I used to make fun of this when I was a member of this honor society, but when I was putting the headline in, I didn’t think much about it.
Think about the initials of the honor society…
That’s right. Right below “News at University” was the headline “STD.”
Thankfully, though, I fixed the problem quickly…I’m crossing my fingers that nobody saw. But for those who might have…I hope they laughed. ;)
