Almost every time I write a post about grammar, word usage, or proofreading, someone comes up with the idea that I never make these mistakes - or that they have to be super-careful in commenting because I'll ... I don't know what. Think less of them, comment about it and embarras them, turn them into the grammar police? I don't know.
Anyway, I keep telling everyone that I make mistakes just like everyone else. Yes, I do proofread my work before I send it. Sometimes I go over it many times, checking for goofy errors.
Here's an email I got this morning in response to my weekly newsletter:
Just a note, for a writer, you messed this up: “ I learned log ago from marketer…….” From your recent email Dated Nov. 5 Maybe it should be the word Long not Log.
I read and re-read that newsletter about 6 times before I hit "send" and I still missed that typo.
So it just goes to show... I told you that I make mistakes just like everyone else, and I do!
