Reading articles online from established news and blog sites who also accepts guest blog posts or articles from freelance writers makes me feel rather disappointed in most cases because a lot of these articles are riddled with typos and grammatical errors. To me, it felt like reading the first draft and somehow it got published without the editorial team proofing it. What on earth is going on? Is it suddenly acceptable to publish something that hasn't gone through the proofreading process? Just because it is easier now to just hit publish and have more content readily available online doesn't mean that we have to forgo spell checking and proofreading. To me, that is tantamount to cheating your readers out of quality content and is unacceptable.
This issue has been bothering me for some time now and I have been approached by a startup company called Grammarly to write a blog post on writing mistakes and they sent me an infographic on the results of a survey they've conducted and I thought I'd share this interesting bit of information with my awesome readers. I hope you enjoy and definitely check out Grammarly for your grammar and spell-checking needs.
