Some “Goof-Proof” Writing Tips
First impressions are everything right? That’s why there’s nothing worse than making a silly grammar mistake in an email to a potential supporter of your cause.
I found this clever info-graphic called 15 Grammar Goofs That Make You Look Silly from the Copyblogger website which should amuse and perhaps teach us a little something about:
- the difference between “your and you’re”
- the difference between “its and it’s”
- the proper use of an apostrophe
- when to use “affect and effect”
- the difference between “then and than”
- when to use “complement and compliment”
- and how to avoid the dreaded “dangling participle”
and many more!
Hope it helps.
