I was thinking my writing skills would become much better If I regard my previous posts as part of my testing exercises. So from time to time I will try to review my ex-post and report my findings like bugs.
First I found it better to start with a spell checker, even if my blog, based on WordPress does this already.I google it and I will use http://orangoo.com/spellcheck/ for beginning.”Enter website to spell check” or “Enter Text”. I will try the whole page, because as I said before WordPress does it already. I use http://www.testalways.com/?p=15 and my email email@example.com and waiting for results. Since looks like it takes some time I am thinking of using the Google spell checker from Google translate. Hm, I noticed that the auto-fill in Google search takes me to “Google translate” as first choice, even if I entered just “Google”. Since I lately used Google translate a lot it basically knew that. Sometimes Google is scary. Meantime the WordPress spell checker pointed out that “google” should be “Google”.I am not completely sure about the context but I will go along with it.Funny though “WordPress” is shown as a misspell. Well the Google spellchecker didn’t find anything to notice anyway.
OK lets say the spell-checking part is done. One mistake that I make is using the punctuation marks, particularly commas “,” and dots “.” in incorrect way. For example “I will try to present my ideas ,others ideas”.As also its pointed out in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commas, the right usage is “word, comma, space”. Meanwhile my site went down and I was wondering if GoDaddy hosting has something to do with it or it that spellchecker site. So I am going around my posts and repair those issues.
Going through the posts I reviewed the text written and I also corrected phrases that didn’t make sense. That’s it for now I am taking a break.
