2012 June 1
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. I say print this out and post it next to your computer so you can easily reference it at any time. Even I can use a refresher when it comes to complement vs. compliment…

    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!

    It’s just practice, practice, practice! I think printing it out (and maybe even laminating it) as a reference next to the computer is a great idea. I might even do that!

    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. ;)
