Potentially embarrassing grammatical blunder!

    I just wrote an entire hub, full length with pictures and polls and everything - about Altars. Just happened to Google something where a link popped up talking about the difference between Alter, and Altar. Guess which one I had been writing! Thank you Google for that stroke of luck to save me from writing an ALTERnatively embarrassing hub!

      Haha, that's funny... don't feel bad. Mine was worse. I wrote a hub on "role playing" only my brain seemed to be hemorrhaging throughout certain parts of it. In some places I used the word "role" in others I used "roll". Someone asked if I was just trying to get past the censors. lol... It's weird how our brains at times have a mind of their own.

      You missed a couple. Check Section Titles and your description. N.B. You may want to include the altErnative spelling in your keywords because other people may be typing the other word, as you were.

    Ha ha, ThompsonPen. That is funny, but I'm glad you caught it in good time. It happens to the best of us. Keep on hubbin'.

    I just did a browser search of the hub. There are still 10 of them. Hang in there! smile

    I don't understand the problem. It is patently obvious that altar and alter are two completely different concepts as well as two different grammatical forms.
