Trunk Rules of Writing Adopted Hear. — 6 Comments

  1. Here, here!

    I’m with you on this 100%. I have high standards for paid publications that I read and get really persnickety about their typos. (I am a recovering professional proofreader, still working on those demons!)

    But for bloggers, typos or the occasional grammar goofs are a way of life. For blog commenters, it’s even more understandable (those teeny comment windows that pop up on Blogger!)

  2. I’m with you, but as a former English prof, I’m still fighting that tendency to use a red pen too often. Just be a bit careful, gals and guys. Yes, some typos are funny–and possibly confusing.

  3. @Polly: Yes, two standards can be applied to typos. Anything I pay for should be typo free. Any thing that is free can have typos (to a limit.)

    @Mr. Fab: Penelope Trunk would have been a bra burner back in the day. I don’t know if she is now, I don’t follow her that regularly.

    @SeniorWriter: As my new best friend Penny (see below) pointed out: We should be careful, but not get OCD about it.

    @Penelope Trunk: Hello, welcome to my place. OK if I call you Penny? Want to exchange blogroll links. hee. I’m glad I gave you a chuckle, you need more chuckles.
