Affect produces an effect. Effect is reliant in sorts to an affect. I remember it this way - A, E, I, O, U This will sound silly, but E has an IOU for A. Now, that is where sometimes Y comes into play or 'why.'
Effect owes Affect, why? A is before E, E has an IOU for A, but why? Science at its best. Cause and effect.
"Affect" is a verb. "Effect" is a noun.
Examples of use:
"Affect":: "I'd like to write poetry on my blog, but I'm concerned it was affect my traffic."
"Effect": "I wrote some poetry on my blog and discovered it didn't have any effect on traffic."
A way to remember the difference may be that the word, "action", has "a" in it. So does "affect". If you remember that then it's easy to keep in mind that "effect" is the one that doesn't have the "a" (action/verb) in it.

Is there a difference between feelings and emotions?I wonder if there's a difference between the meaning of the words FEELINGS and EMOTIONS? Can you use both words in similar situations? When I write, I just use the word that sounds best in my ears. English is not my first language.
