Yes!!! I make typos every day.

grafication

A few weeks ago after a typo filled blog of mine was criticized on twitter, I decided to look for bloggers who have overcome the terror of grammar Nazis.

Check out what i found;

1. Geoff Livingston considers himself a walking typo (not so different from me). He says;

“Before you rush to deliver an admonishment or advise about proofing more, the fine art of editing, blah, blah, blah, please wait. Believe it or not, I proof these posts, as many as five or six times before publishing. No matter how many times I proof an elusive typo seems to appear. Even the posts that seem OK always have a few sentences that could be tightened, more active, or simply rephrased.”

2. Then Penelope Trunk (@penlopetrunk) who made my typo evening interesting. She wrote a blog about Writing without typos is totally outdated. She highlights all the reasons why grammar and typo checking is old, and for the 18th century. She automatically became my hero, expect she had no typos in that blog… hmm

3. Finally Joseph Birdsong who differentiated Typos and Grammatical Errors. He made me feel like a super typo woman.

Anyway typo or no typo, life goes on. I do what I have to do to share knowledge and information.
