Great Buzz. Grammar has been my most difficult subject for me. I love math, science, and business. I never cared about the how my proofs look or if my words were spelled right, my goal was to find out if my hypothesis was correct or if my business plan numbers were in the green. Yet, when I married my wife, she was an English major. On a daily basis began to correct my words without realizing it. When I began to market on-line, friends of mine told me to try proof read my own work. I had never did this before, not even in college. When I did this, I realized that what I wrote was NOT what I was thinking. Usually after my third proof read, it's sounds great to me. But, I still find professional criticism from followers who suggest changes in my work. I also thank them, and make the change. I am still in the process of making corrections to articles I wrote five years ago. I found I relied to much on "SpellCheck". It made my grammar worse over the years.

I just saw this on LinkedIn. The one thing that i feel you missed is autocorrect. The rise of autocorrect has caused many, otherwise intelligent, people to seem unintelligible. I turned mine off, yet sometimes the app autocorrects when you hit enter. It is frustrating to see a well thought out point become a series of gibberish because a word isnt recognized. I haven't figured out how that translates into changing other words in the post. *Sigh* Somehow, if autocorrect thinks you have one word wrong, it thinks it should find other possible words to change. I have checked a post, multiple times, and was appalled when my post suddenly said 'My son served in an Afghan blanket' I am making it my life's work to figure out how and why Afghanistan would be changed to Afghan blanket. I am also curious why it doesn't fix an obviously misspelled word, for example, changef doesn't correct to changed. Ah, the mysteries of life...*chuckle*

And Paul "Pablo" Croubalian? I know nada about coding! Nothing. Commas I know about, but not anything you're so good at in your world.

Wednesday Words: Who and Whom

Wednesday Words: Who and Whom

From what I've seen over the 20+ years I've been helping business professionals (re)learn the finer points of American grammar, very few folks know how to use who and whom.Seriously. You probably do not. So I thought I'd see if a post on just these...

When all else fails me, I use Grammerly. It points out the stupid mistakes I make when I forget the rules or cannot really decipher them.

Try Grammarly. It's a free browser plugin that will do a good job a checking your spelling and an OK job of checking your grammar in almost any text editor, including comments.

What bugs me is that unless I write in a text editor before I post on BeBee or LinkedIn and I make a mistake my only choice is to delete it and start over; editing is not enabled.
