Writing Hint #21 Do you check your spelling?
I have written here on several occasions about the need for writers, and bloggers in particular, to take far more care to check their spelling. Some blogs are annoyingly difficult to read when they contain numerous errors; I usually don’t bother to try and click right on out of there.
The Probabilist has written a very useful article called “The ten most misspelled words in blogs.” Technically the words he has listed are commonly misused words. Well worth a read anyway. With over 140 comments on his article that section is also a good read.
