That's why it's such a good idea to proofread blog posts before hitting the publish button. Knowing that proofreading one's own work can be difficult (we tend to see what we expect rather than what we actually typed), it's very helpful to get a picky friend to look things over.
Sometimes I see a typo that managed to sneak into an old post. Now and then, someone points out a mistake that slipped by me. I correct them.
Good spelling makes articles easier to read, and it increases the chance that readers will understand what I'm trying to say. It also protects me from "gotcha" moments with my English students.
