Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar Clangers!
This is my first attempt at creating training at WA so I hope that you will forgive any faux pas!
I was a primary school teacher and specialised in teaching five to seven year olds which means I need to apologise in advance in case I slip back into 'little people' teaching mode.
Anyway, here goes.
How many times have you looked at a piece of writing and a mistake jumped out at you?
Whether a spelling, punctuation or grammar error, they shoot out and hit me in the face.
Kyle has created excellent training for creating content for your website and I'm following every word. The problem I find though is we are encouraged to use a natural and conversational tone which is good but I don't think that should mean our grammar standards should drop.
In my opinion, a good, interesting and conversational piece of writing can lose credibility with these errors.
Okay, I may be the only person in the world who feels this way but just in case I'm not alone I've put together some of the 'clangers' I've come across recently.
I hope that they will help at least one person avoid these pitfalls. If nothing else, some of them are amusing so they may entertain you.
Please feel free to correct any errors in my text and I'd love some feedback to know if I'm on the right track or not.
Thanks for reading
