Hi Sarah,

I am lucky that if I publish with typos, old eagle eye Paul Hassing sends me a DM so I can quickly fix it. They do look bad and I mostly have spelling mistakes when I rush and don't take time to do a final check.

Hi Susan,

One of the reason to befriend other bloggers is because they all become virtual editors for us. I know you've caught a few whoppers on my posts. I'm eternally grateful.

My favorite was a line of knock-off high-end Chinese bycicles I saw at a flea market. On the frame, it said "Disk Break".

Oh no! Having lived in different parts of the world, I can attest to the often unintentional humor injected into translation.

Thanks for sharing.

Sarah,

I do the same thing. I post my article, go back and check and find at least three errors i didn't notice the first time! It's why they say you should wait an hor before submitting...I'm too impulsive for tthat!

Hi Yoni,

After I wrote this post, I found 3 more spelling errors in marketing material. I was say, "Unbelievable", if it wasn't so common. Spelling *is* a big deal especially if it sends the unintentional message that you're lazy, stupid or just don't care.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sorry! I meant to reply, not post a new comment.

Very True! I've noticed my problems writing usually occur when I change a sentence - the syntax might come out wrong if I don't check very carefully. What was correct in plural in the original idea is now wrong in the revised version, but it's something I don't always catch when proofreading. Great Article!

Thank you. I usually read my content aloud to avoid to find grammatical errors. Just lately I've discovered if I read a blog post aloud directly after I've published it, I can almost always find something that was corrupted during revisions.

Cheers,

Sarah
