    Thanks for the comment Melissa, though this was was from me rather than Michelle! You’re right that not everyone agrees. I guess I was speaking more to the web marketing audience on that. I guess I was getting tired of saying “not everyone understands that…” Even still, I should have though better of the opening line. And your comments are so very true!

I see an awful lot of spelling errors, typos, and just bad grammar all over the web, even on some of the most professional sites, as well as on plenty of A-list blogs. A typo here and there is no big deal, but if there’s more than one on a page, or I notice them on a daily basis, I sort of cringe and wonder why they don’t hire a professional proofreader. Thanks Michelle!
