by Emily Hill

Thanks to this infographic I found on Pinterest, I can sum up about 15 Cross Your T’s posts into one. Copyblogger’s “15 Grammer Goofs That Make You Look Silly” is a must-have reference for all writers, especially those whose grammar skills may be questionable.

    What kind of grammar things would you like to see? Maybe I can do some research for you! Grammar Girl is one of my favorite resources for grammar questions. If you haven’t checked out that site, you totally should!

    Oooh! I love this. I don’t have perfect grammar, but I am sure bugged when I read and notice other people’s mistakes!

    I’ll admit I often forget to proofread my own work. It’s much more fun proofreading other people’s writing. ;)
