Boost Your Blog in 100 Days – Importance of Proofreading #BB100

It’s Part 3 in the #BB100 Grammar Challenge. Yesterday’s post provided a super simple way to distinguish between WHO and WHOM and also gave the assignment for the Grammar Challenge – finding pictures of grammar errors when you’re out and about – please no pictures from blogs. Let’s keep this nice! You can email them to me {[email protected]} or blog about them, in a recap post of what you learned during the grammar series.

Today, we’re going to change it up a bit and I’ll share with you a few of the pictures I’ve collected with grammar mistakes. It’s often a lot easier to spot other people’s mistakes than it is to find our own. See if you can find the errors and leave a comment with what you find!

I had a rude wake-up call when I started teaching College Composition classes ten years ago. Teaching is really the best way to learn! When I started teaching Composition, I got a heck of a lot smarter – and in a hurry.

The advent of social media has made grammar errors even worse, yet. No longer do we need to think about proper grammar at all. Capitalization – what’s that? Why do we need spelling rules – UR anyone? Tell me I’m not the only person who texts with proper capitalization, punctuation, and spelling?? And there are soooo many blogs, and so many people writing whatever they want. I can say this because I make a ton of mistakes, myself. In fact, I had a glaring error in the TITLE of my intro post for the 100 days to a better blog. And no one told me for days…isn’t that embarrassing? I always find typos after I hit publish. Always. Despite my own mistakes, I still cringe when I come across the errors I’m going to share with you in this post.
