Does your worst typo top these?
- After listening to Grammar Girl today, I have learned to not trust electronic spelling error check. Computers are man-made and no one can depend on it for grammar mistakes. I have also learned to always proof read everything before printing, and posting. Even if, it’s not yourself proofreading it, make sure that you always get a second eye or else one will end up like the church pamphlet leaving off a certain letter in spelling “Tits” instead of “Titus”.

- I was surprised by the references section in Grammar Girls podcast, because normally references are one of the most important sections of a resume or volunteer form. It is just un-known to hear that such errors were made, plus the person who is trying to get a certain job position will look badly according to that error. Then again, it was no surprise because of our generation living a fast-paced life.
- In this experience, I want to know more about editing, and how to proof read my work without misreading or getting tired of proofreading it. Sometimes, when you are in a hurry to do a writing assignment, you sometimes forget to proof read it more than once. I will love to learn the fun way of proof reading things with excitement.
