A Pet Peeve: Proofreading (or the lack thereof)

25793708-the-phrase-always-check-for-spelling-errors-on-a-cork-notice-board

Is anyone else bothered by posts that didn’t seem to get proofread, even a little bit? I’m not saying I’m perfect. Nope. Not at all. See that little gizmo above the writing space on the Add New Post page? The one with ABC and check? Yup. Spellcheck.

Go ahead. Give it a try.

I know the surest way for me to find an error is to hit “send.” I think that’s why they also put that little “edit” button on every page.

I’m neither your teacher nor your mother. But with too many dumb mistakes I won’t be your reader either.

  1. One of my peeves too. I always have to “View Post” before publishing it, I seem to miss errors in the writing section. And yup on the edit button! My mom has a tendency to walk in and point out my mistakes, which I cringe about, but immediately fix them.

    I chose this same theme when I started my blog 2 years ago, but changed quickly because the white type on black really bothered my eyes. But you can see I went back to it today for this assignment. I’ll just have to see how I feel in a few days!
