Can you identify the error?
The picture shows the subject line of an email that I’ve edited to hide the identity of the guilty typist. It includes the kind of error that a spell checker won’t catch. Even Microsoft Word’s grammar checker didn’t catch the typo when I tested the complete sentence.
Proofreading is essential, if you want to avoid embarrassing yourself in your financial blog or other written communications. Tips for effective proofreading are included in my blogging class.
If you think typos don’t matter, read some of the comments this typo drew from my social media friends.
- Oooh…That makes me not want to open that e-mail at all.
- That kind of mistake makes me nuts.
In case you couldn’t identify the error
The subject line should have read “See who’s speaking this fall….”
Gosh, I hope I didn’t let any typos slip through in this post.
