I will continue to add to this as I see or get more words. Feel free to send me yours if you have some you want added to this list.

There are so many words that cause confusion and I hope I have given you some of the ones you might have the most trouble with.

Some other tips are:
  1. If you are confused with a word you can always search it on the Internet using your favorite search engine.
  2. Use online dictionaries. Dictionary.com is one of my favorite.
  3. Take your time and proofread your content. If it is something you just have to get up fast, fine. Get it up, then proof it, and make any changes. Any time I find an error on my pages I change it right then so that I don't forget.
  4. Do not use slang unless it is relevant to your content. Your customers, for the most part, do not want to read slang, they want to see clean content. Proper grammar is clean content.
  5. Read your content out loud. Most mistakes will be caught this way.
  6. If you have someone you can get to read your content and tell you if there are any errors in it, have them help you.
  7. If someone points a mistake out to you thank them and don't take offense. If they are trying to offend, then they will succeed. If they are trying to help, they will be hurt if you are offended and won't try to help you anymore. So if you don't get offended, you are the winner either way!
  8. Remember that bad grammar, spelling, and stinky content turn people off. Think of what you think when you see those things and multiply it by thousands or millions that will see your content!
I hope you will use this resource and enjoy its ease of access. The list was arranged alphabetically so the letters could be found more easily.

Thanks for reading and have a GREAT day!

Very helpful. It's easy to confuse words when they both sound and look alike. Thanks for the post, I'll refer to it often I'm sure =)
