Today I thought I’d do something slightly different. While I usually try to avoid errors – today I’m purposely going to mispell words and see how many of them you can find.
I’w throwing down a chalenge.
As sum of you might have notised my post the other dey was riddled with grammatical errors. Some were oversites, others were cauzed by rewording and some were due to sloppyness. The fact of the matter is that I was multitasking and trying to get to mach done at the same time. Hence, the quality suffered.
Completely my fawlt.
Thankfully a few of my readers pointed them out to me so hopefully I had made the neccessary adjustments.
I must admit that I was a little disappointed in myself as I pride myself as being a descent writer. That wasn’t always the case but I walked hard to inprove both my spelling and writing.
In this age of computers, spelling is samething that meny of us have gotten lazy at. I must admit that I do lov having the spell check function to aid me.
But a computer can only tell you when a word is mispelled, not when the word itself is wrong.
Their are many words in the English language that have the same pronounciation yet have drastically different meanings.
Just the other day I glanced at a friend’s calender and noticed both a grammer error as well as a spelling misteak. I didn’t have the hart to tell them.
Grammer may be tough but spelling is simple. All that’s needed is a little memorization and practise. And when in doubt, all it takes is a few seconds to find out the correct spelling. The problem I have found is that so many of us don’t bother to take the time to check.
Having been a teecher for so many years spelling errors iritate me more than anything.
Witch is why we should all take the time to give our work the one ober.
Their’s nothing worse than handling in reports that have numerious spelling misteaks. There stick out like a soar thum.
I now that one could simply copy and peste this into a word document and find mast of the typeos but they’re a few that will slip by a computer.
I can’t wait to sea if any of my reeders can find all of them.
ps. if you were wandering how this relates to success, it’s simpul. Sucess is all about doing the little things well. Some people blame there education for their poor speling. But their’s nothing stoping us from learning by ourselves. You may have been a pore speller but only you can determine weather you’ll stay one.
