Also my punctuation has fallen down a well.....What is happening to me the most simple words I forget how to spell. I may need to go back and repeat my English exams....Is it just me or does anyone else worry about these things.
All the time Ive got this love /hate thing with 'i' before 'e' drives me batty!!.
My backspace button sure takes a pounding
You are not alone it comes with maturity I certainly do not like to say age. lolololo
I have never been good at spelling so as I get older I am not really losing anything:)
I always try and remember that line "i before e except after c", but always forget. Weird.
I have problems where to place punctuation and sometimes I take a wild guess and hope for the best....so uncool...I only just leant not to spell buisiness as business...been spelling it that way for years.
Oh Helen, you are a kindred spirit. Yes, the older I get the more problems I have with spelling and punctuation. And to think I used to want to major in English...sigh ~
I totally understand. This is why I'm devoted to MS Word and Firefox...they save me from eternally spelling wrong. Punctuation is easy for me, although I tend to have run on sentences - I just can't stop myself, you see.
On tip I learned after I was diagnosed with Dyslexia, read your sentences/paragraphs backwards. Yes, its daunting, but you catch your grammatical errors and capitalization errors easier.
I read in another thread (forgot the topic) that it is better to write the hub first in MS Word before copying and pasting on hubpages. I took that advice and I sure am glad I did. It saved me from all those misspelled words and missing punctuation marks I kept having before. Whoever gave that advice, thank you.
Hehehe you just know this recently LOL there emievil...
This is what I do hehehe... Everytime I type directly to hubpages awww I got a lot of faulty grammar and misspelled words.
Oh boy here we go, i just know i'm gunna kick myself for asking , and before you all start, yes i am blond...What the hell is MS I thought it was a desease. easy explanations please...Blond with no lights on here!!!!
MS = Microsoft My suggestion to fix your spelling problems is to read as much as you can! Getting into a habit of reading will breed discipline and memory (for spelling, etc.) Not to mention it's fun
more reading you must be joking. I read 3 books per week and have done for the last 15 years..OK I admit since i started hubbing it's been none...but that's only 9 days...There must be something wrong with me.A brain disfunction...gawd did I spell that right.
Okay, but do you work at trying to improve your spelling/grammar? I'm sure if you put some effort into it, you will excel! English is actually my second language and I also grew up learning both Thai and Lao (I had no other choice). You'll improve only if you want to
You can buy those brain training games..I have one and look where it has got me..Went over my hubs at 5 oclock this morning and I could not beleive all the mistakes in there...I swear to you all they were not there yesterday...I think we have a grammer devil in the hub who goes around changing the text.
Thought of this thread today when I started my new hub
"How to write an online dataing profile that works"
followed by another new hub
"How to write an online dateing profile that works"
Bah. I now have these two borked URLs sitting in my profile taunting me...
I write in notepad, transfer it to Open Office, do a spell check, transfer it to Hub Pages, look for spelling errors and I STILL miss some.
I have a bad habit of getting into typing and just let the words flow and not worrying about what I am typing, just what I am thinking.
So don't feel bad.
Well, I use MS Word, so it picks up spelling and grammar errors, and here on the forums, the similar squiggly lines appear if you make a mistake.
I make sure to check.
But writing on hubs is different, the text capsules don't indicate spelling mistakes as far as I know...yet.
well some days i spell well..... other days i make quite a few mistakes... grammar needs really brushing up on, i know. Writing most days now though, i am sure we must improve with time, even if we have lapses in memory, or as my sister calls them senior moments.....

I think HubPages is just a terrific opportunity for writers to write and make connections within the HubPages community. However, I am concerned about the quality of some of the hubs I see. Even if the writing is fresh and lively, if the spelling, punctuation, or grammar are poor, then...

Does bad grammar and spelling bother you?I don't expect everyone to be an English professor, but for goodness sake people, use some punctuation and a built in spell-check! This is primarily aimed at forums, hubs, and places like YouTube comments. Places where people could take the time to read over...

Hi everyone,Just a question that I am hoping some of you will answer. I have seen SO many excellent hubs here on HP and find myself asking the following question ... do these folks do it for the money or because they love to write?!!I think I know the answer to this but want to ask anyway. Love...

Is it rude to point out grammar/spelling mistakes on hubs via comments?I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes. Otherwise, these hubs would be interesting and will written in my opinion. Is it rude to point out these mistakes...

Even before the Google changes, I never really saw very much traffic to my travel hubs, so I didn't write any more travel hubs. Because of this, I stopped writing altogether... because I LOVE writing about travel.What are some types of travel hubs I could write that would attract an audience?
