Atrocious Grammar and Spelling

I have always loved reading and was a repeat spelling bee champion throughout my childhood, so you can correctly conclude that words are my “thing.” People who frequently read are exposed to more words and vocabulary, so they are often good writers too.

I’m not so unrealistic and arrogant as to expect everyone to have perfect spelling and vocabulary skills. It’s just that in a world where we have technology literally in the palm of our hands, there is no excuse for not doing a grammar or spell check. We also need to stop posting things like “Sorry for your lost” (instead of “loss”) or confusing “your” with “you’re” even after all the work your poor English teacher put in so many years ago. Let’s do better in 2021.
