Blogging Peeves

I love blogging and I love reading other people's blogs. But I have a few peeves (of which I cannot claim I have never committed) that just irritate me.

  • Select the correct word. There is a huge difference between they're, their, and there; and reign and rein; and its and it's. And I can go on. If you aren't sure, look it up on dictionary.com or thesaurus.com for help. It will really help people decipher what you are writing about.
  • Spelling, spelling, spelling. If your blog app indicates a word is wrong or autocorrects to something you don't understand, correct it. How many people's resumes include the term that they were the 'manger' of a department because the omitted 'a' in manager becomes manger. Or when I worked for a legal non profit the omitted 'l' in public. 
  • Punctuation wasn't taught as an optional part of studying the English language. Its important. Run on sentences are one thing. But if you type an entire paragraph without using a single comma something might be incorrect.
I am not perfect. My high school English teacher told me I would never be a writer. Through my career I have done a lot of editing other people's writings and have learned the importance usage, spelling and punctuation. 

After I write each blog post I usually go back and read it before posting. I have also been known to reread earlier posts and go back and make corrections.

A blog may be the result of a stream of consciousness that just pours out. But editing is usually required.... But keep writing and reading.....

a daily effort done by medical doctor to cure cancer can increase the spirit of life longer.
herbal remedies are also very helpful for the healing that is sometimes more effective and positive thoughts that cancer can heal
