Some “Goof-Proof” Writing Tips

March 7, 2012

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.
