So yesterday I had a grammar mistake in my post. I’d like to say typo but the fact of the matter is I used You’re instead or Your and I never noticed. Quite a few people have noted the mistake, sent me messages about it and now it’s corrected, which is all fine and it should have been the end of the story. But I really wanted to share this choice email I got about the issue. It’s a bit lengthy and goes in-depth about the rules of you and you’re so I won’t post all of it here but I felt this part was the best.
Any serious blogger should be aware of the rules I just explained and pay attention to what they write and how they write it. Having an audience is a privilege and your readers deserve a text that is free of grammatical errors. Any less is an insult to them and their intelligence.
Well, dear readers, I am truly sorry for all the mistakes I have made and made you suffer through. I will lash myself until I am worthy of your attention.
Your undeserving servant, Lonomonkey
