Silly Goofs

Avoid these mistakes while blogging
We all make mistakes, some more than others.  There are a few particular grammatical errors I'm prone to making, and even more spelling errors than I care to admit.

The spelling errors I'm fortunate to have help with because my Chrome browser lets me know my mistakes as I type them out.  So far on this article I've made four errors, three of which were caught by Chrome.  The fourth was a capitalization mistake.

This afternoon I was perusing the site of an old vendor that worked for my old company, one that did the company website.  On their blog they had an article about National Proofreading Day, which was back on March 6th.  I found this ironic because this company did a poor job of entering in the website copy I wrote, entering in numerous errors that weren't in the source copy.

All personal merriment aside, the blog had a good infographic from Brian Clark.  I figured it would be worthwhile to share.
