In honor of are National Speling Bee the weak of May 22 – 27, we want to remind you to check you’re spelling. In todays fast paste world of social media, texting, and short attention spans writers are often tempted rush they’re copy resluting in embarrassing spelling errs and run on sentences and run on sentences that are almost to painful too read.
Is spelling and grammar lost arts? We recently ran across two strong cases for “yes.”
Not long ago I saw a online post by a local company looking fore a copy writer. The ironic notice went something like this:
“We’re looking for an experienced senior copywriter. Get your stuff together and show us what you got!”
“What I got?”
You mean like last week at the store? Or that dangling participle you been seeing the doctor for? Tell us! Unquiring minds like we want to know! What about about the sincere but immediately dismissed job seeker who’s recent cover letter stated that they would love to work for “Bonfire Effects?”
Effects. Plural. With an “s”.
Wait—does they’re miss spelling mean their is another one of us out there someplace? (See what we did there?) Or it may be it means they are willing to work for smores, a few campfire stories, and some smokey clothes at the end of the day? Rule number won of job getting: Spell right the company name. Perhaps she should apply at Starback’s instead.
How about these humdingers?
But fear knot, intrepid reader. Bad spelling and grammer doesn’t half to try your patients and make you’re company look badly. After all, like Steve Martin once said, “Some people have a way with words and some people…not…have…way.”
Let hour proofreader and copyeditor extraordinaire (didn’t think we could do it, did you?) help you tell a more better story and expand your vocaba..vocabul…your word collection. From websites and emails to ads and brochures, we’ll take your foul language and make it sing—S-I-N-G—sing.
