I have been guilty of this, where I have typed, texted, wrote, emailed, you name it too fast and wrote really bad grammar. This past year, I was in a group chat and I was writing so fast on my phone that I did not realize until afterwards that I was misspelling, had improper English, and my sentences were not complete. I am still embarrassed about it. As a blogger, I try to have good grammar and make sure that I don’t have many typos. When I first started creating my quote or thoughts of the week, I had many typos. It was so embarrassing. I had people tell me, “Hey, you have a word misspelled.” Being told your grammar is off is not something you want to hear. I have a bachelors degree in English – Technical communication and yet, here I am misspelling, not always having the right punctuation, etc. I learned that it’s okay to slow down, check your sentences and words before publishing. I have used the website Grammarly before and yes it does help. But slowing down and just making sure everything is correct, really does save you from embarrassment. I have learned this the hard way and I remember one time when I was posting one of my quotes or thoughts of the week, I made major grammar errors. I kept making the same errors because I was rushing and not really making the changes that were needed. Over 3 thousand people saw my error on Pinterest. I was so embarrassed. Just thinking about it makes me feel like, ‘Oh No!’ I have learned to double check myself when I am posting. Am I perfect? No. I will probably still make mistakes but I have learned that it’s okay to take your time and just make sure all of my content is edited and looks good.
