This blog is about beads, people who make beads, my life, my dog, my friends.
I like this. It's brief and to the point. We all know it, but once we start writing, we tend to forget that the other person can't see our face or read our tone. You know what bothers me, though? The rash of misspelled words that comes from so much communicating in a hurry (emails, chat, texting, etc.). Even though I'm a good speller, I am guilty of it, too. I'm forgetting grammar rule after grammar rule, and I catch myself spelling words the way they sound. This guy just made a very nice video presentation about communication, but the prominent misspelled word was a major distraction. It worries me that maybe he didn't even think about proofreading because no one taught him to do so. Does that make any sense, or do I just sound grouchy?
You are so right, Ang. As a former, thank God, former teacher, I see the incorrect spellings, the poor use of grammar, etc. Proof reading is taught, but we rely so much on computers now to proof read for us.
