Grammar Mistakes

When you start a blog, the most important thing is to get readers. To do that, you need to create a blog that is both relevant and enjoyable to the reader. Here are some great tips to help you with that.

Banner Ads

You need to update your blog regularly. If you want people to keep coming back to your site, you need to have something for them to come back to. If people see the same blog post from a month ago, they are going to figure you aren’t doing anything, and they will stop visiting.

Blogger

Make sure you proofread your posts. If you want to seem like a professional blogger, you need to ensure that your content is properly proofread. You want to of course check for spelling errors and grammar mistakes, but more than that you want to make sure that the post flows the right way. A good idea is to read each post out loud.

Business Purposes

Have posts ready for posting if you need to be away from your blog. Because regular posting is preferred, if you plan to be away or take a vacation, consider pre-writing a few new blog posts and letting them drip in at certain times when you aren’t around. >

Let the real you show. There is no one who is better at being you than you are. That is the true quality that sets you apart from other people, so you should use it. Be uniquely you, and you will attract more people who respect you for your individuality.

Golden Opportunity

Use white space and bullet lists. Remember that the online screen is easy to get muddled. Make sure you use space between your paragraphs, and make sure that you use bullet point lists to make the information easier to see and easier to understand.

Grammar

Make sure your content is relevant to your readers. This is the most important thing about your blog. You need to give people a reason to be there. Your content has to entertain, inform or solve a problem. What are you doing for your readers? Why do they read your site or follow you? Think about that, and then do more of it.

Grammar Mistakes

Ask others to guest post on your blog. Sometimes, if you don’t have many ideas, you can allow other bloggers to post a new blog on your site. Their information can give you a break, and you will still have good content for your site.

High Interest

Ask readers for feedback. This is a really easy way to find out what your readers want, and this can be a great way to encourage loyalty, since everyone likes being listened to.

Link Relationship

After reading this article, you should be able to understand that you have a lot of things to do in order to get your blog off the ground and keep it going. If you use the tips in this article, you are setting yourself up for blogging success. Hopefully that success will come soon, and you will be able to blog for years to come!

    What Grammar Mistakes Are In This Sentence? Here is the sentence.
    “For example; if someone knocks on your door and is very dirty with holes in their shirt, odds are you will not feel very inclined to open the door even thought you do not know a single thing about their personality or why they knocked on your door in the first place.”
    Please point out any grammar mistakes, comma splices, or just anything in general. Thanks!

      If Lauren is a writing tutor, God help the English language.

      If a dirty person wearing a tattered shirt knocks on your door, the odds are you will not want to admit him, even though you know nothing about his personality, nor his reason for knocking.

      If you need the “for example”, then you want a comma; not a semicolon.

      . NO! English, or any language, is too complicated to be corrected by any machine. Yet. But there are online human ‘tutors’ who might help for a little money.
      Consider this statement:
      “The dove [bird] dove [dived] into [in to?] the blue [blew?] sea [see? c?] fromm a nearby [near by?] pier [peer?]. ”
      ………. The BEST way to learn grammar is to READ. Read lots of well-written books. And of course study grammar lesson books. That helps your spelling also. .

    Why Are Most Teachers Good At English In College? Why are most professors good in English classes when it comes to correcting essays(history, geography, General Education, Social Sciences) and detecting grammar mistakes. In other words, how are professors capable of finding grammar mistakes in student essays even if English is not their field of work.

    What Are Some Good French Grammar Correcting Sites? I have a French report to do and I need help with my grammar. I DON’T need a translating site, I can speak French fine it`s just that when it comes to writing I have a little bit of trouble conjugating and finding the gender of words. It would be nice if I could find a site where I could type my text and it can show me my grammar mistakes. Preferable if it uses Canadian French since it is slightly different from France French.

    Thanks a lot!

    Is There Any Grammar Mistake Is This Little Sentence? I’m very appreciative if anyone can help me out here.
    If theres any grammar mistakes, which ones and why? Okay so heres the little sentence.—>
    ” A relationship included in the friendship, I’m open to. However, a relationship isn’t what I’m looking for and it doesn’t need to happen. Meaning, a relationship would be nice, but its a pretty low priority. So I don’t want a chick thats going to be all strict with me. My interests right now, are way more into friendship than the relationship alone. ” <-- Any grammar mistakes?

      1. It is not a little sentence. It is a bunch of sentences.

      2. They are full of errors.

      *A relationship included in the friendship, I’m open to.

      The meaning of this sentence is unclear. The subordinate clause has no verb, and you end with a preposition.

      Do you mean, “I’m open to any relationship, including friendship”?

      *However, a relationship isn’t what I’m looking for and it doesn’t need to happen.

      You need a comma between the clauses: “However, a relationship isn’t what I’m looking for, and it doesn’t need to happen. ”

      *Meaning, a relationship would be nice, but its a pretty low priority.

      You can’t put “meaning” there, it isn’t an adverb. You also left out the apostrophe in “it’s”

      You could rewrite it this way: “This means that a relationship would be nice, but it’s a pretty low priority.”

      *So I don’t want a chick thats going to be all strict with me.

      You are missing a comma after “so”, an apostrophe in “that’s”, and “all” is not an adverb and can’t be used that way. “Chick” isn’t a grammar mistake, but it is slang.

      Try this: “So, I don’t want a chick that’s going to be too strict with me.”

      *My interests right now, are way more into friendship than the relationship alone.

      You have a misplaced comma, “way” is slang and used improperly, and an “interest” cannot be “into” something.

      Try this: “My interest right now is in a friendship more than a relationship.”

      I honestly hope English is not your first language. If it is, you really have done a pretty poor job at writing something very simple.

      As for what you wrote, good luck. I think she’s going to see right through it, and the part about “I don’t want a chick that’s too strict” might annoy her. But you only asked for grammar advice, not dating advice.

    Would A Spelling Mistake Technically Be A Grammar Mistake As Well? For example, when people say sarcastically:

    “I have amazing grammer.”

    Would this ACTUALLY be a grammar mistake or simply only a spelling mistake?

    View Comment
    1. Reply

      No, it would not. Grammar refers to the structure and syntax of sentences, not the spelling.
      “I have amazing grammer.” is not a grammatical mistake because it has proper structure and syntax, and has all the requirements of a sentence.
      “I amazing grammar.” on the other hand IS a grammatical mistake as it lacks a proper predicate/verb.

      There, their, and they’re can be either a spelling or a grammar mistake, depending on whether they intentionally chose the wrong word or made a typo

    Grammar Pros/experts, Please. Any Grammar Mistakes? Any Other Suggestions? With a divorce rate around 50%, it is easy to see that couples do not take the normal ??????til death do us part??? vow anymore; instead, it seems to be ??????til divorce do us part???. With every upcoming year, divorce rates are predicted to increase, supporting the fact that marriage is not as important as it used to be. Marriage is often viewed in today???s society as a one day celebration, where you say a few words and get a ring, and then you have the rest of the night to party and eat cake. Too often, you will see couples who overlook the fact that there are many other aspects in marriage that are more important than the actual wedding, such as trust, communication and respect. These factors, plus many others, combine to create wonderful marriages which are necessary to the well-being of a society. Without these proper and successful marriages, the next generation will have no examples to look up to, and it will become harder for them to develop and keep relationships.

      Grammar looks good, Princess!

      I just have a few suggestions, so I am rewriting to include my suggestions, and I will include your regular text in parentheses after my suggestions:

      With the (a) divorce rate around 50%, it is easy to see that couples do not take the normal ” ’til death do us part” vow anymore; instead, it seems to be ” ’til divorce do us part”. In coming years, (With every upcoming year) divorce rates are predicted to increase, supporting the fact that marriage is not as important as it used to be. Marriage is often viewed in today’s society as a one day celebration (no comma) where you say a few words and get a ring, and then (no “you”) have the rest of the night to party and eat cake. Too often, you (no “will”) see couples who overlook the fact that there are many other aspects in marriage that are more important than the actual wedding, such as trust, communication and respect. These factors, plus many others, combine to create wonderful marriages, (you had no comma–this one really depends on which part of the sentence you are emphasizing) which are necessary to the well-being of (no “a”) society. Without these more traditional (“proper” implies a negative judgement–appropriate if that is what you want to do, but you should generally strive to not be biased) and successful marriages, the next generation will have no examples to follow (look up to–removes a dangler, which technically takes place at the end of a sentence, but you can also get tagged for it if it is at the end of a clause–just depends on who is looking at and grading your writing), and it will become harder for them to develop and keep relationships.

      Those changes are, of course, merely my opinions. In a few places, notably the sentence describing current weddings, there was simply too much repetition of the word “you”, which can become a distraction. Also, I changed commas in a few places, as I wasn’t sure if the structure, as written, was emphasizing what you wanted to emphasize (this is, naturally, a matter of opinion, and you will know best). It is a little confusing, and I apologize for that, as there were several places where I removed words, and realized there was no way to note my removal, other than placing a note in parentheses after the removal ? So, I am sorry if it looks kind of jumbled to you. Of all my changes, which are really suggestions, the only one I feel VERY strongly about is the use of the word “proper”, for which I have substituted “more traditional”. It depends on what you are writing this for, really. “Proper” in this case implies a value judgement on your part, and generally, that is frowned upon. Also, “proper” can be taken several ways, as it has more than one usage, so it can confuse your meaning. For those reasons, I would avoid it, but the choice is entirely yours. And naturally, you are entitled to ignore everything I have written, or only use the parts you agree with ?

    Are There Any Grammar Mistakes In This Paragraph? I need help for an English paper. Are there any grammar mistakes (including passive voice) in the following sentences?

    “It is plain that their love is grounded in something that will last for eternity. Bella and Edward eventually get married, and through this Meyer displays that a love focused on external appearances is long-lasting and tested by time, able to weather the storms.
    A love like the one Bella and Edward display is something special, a real and enduring love that few can find, but it is an example of how deep true love is.”

    Thanks!

      There are no grammar mistakes. That does NOT include uses of passive voice. Whatever makes you think that use of passive voice is a mistake? That is ridiculous. Passive is often the better way to express a thought. What you have written has clauses with passive voice verbs, yet it is well written and easily understood.

      Your passive uses are:

      …love is grounded…
      …get married… – Don’t fall into the trap of believing that passive voice is always some form of ‘to be’ plus a past participle. Several other verbs may be used to form passives, and ‘get’ is one of them. (This is your one use of passive that would be as good in active voice: ‘Bella and Edward eventually marry…’)
      …is…tested by time…

    Grammar Mistakes? Can anyone help me to correct my grammar mistakes in this text? I need it to be CORRECT AND FORMAL English (the one teachers want) “Children should be able to make up their own minds about their appearance and lifestyle. Parents are there only for support.” That???s completely true, but the way kids decide about how to dress, what do they do in their lives, who to go out with depends a lot on how they were raised and their experiences as younger kids.
    If a cild had a very bad childhood, he was hit by his parents and misrespected by other children he will become a rebel and his appearance is going to be very rude. On the other hand, if he was a kid who lived a childhood with respect and love from his parents and family, he is going to grow like someone self confident and his appearance is not going to be so “extreme” like other kids mentioned at the beginning of this text.I strongly believe that parents are so important, and their support is the key for kids and to define their future

      You have very few mistakes, but for “formal” english, i would change some of the phrasing.
      Don’t change too much, because you still want this to sound like you. Just be careful with casual phrasing, and you are set.

      This is how I would write it:
      That statement is completely true, but the way kids decide about how to dress, what do they do in their lives and who to go out with depends a lot on how they were raised.
      If a kid had a very bad childhood, if he was hit by his parents and disrespected by other children, then he will become a rebel and his appearance is going to reflect that. On the other hand, if he was a kid whose childhood was filled with respect and love from his parents and family, he is going to grow up to be someone self-confident and his appearance is not going to be so “extreme”.I strongly believe that parents are very important, and their support is the key to defining a child’s future.

      So far, most of the answers are nonsense. “So” is a perfectly acceptable conjunction, so there’s no need for a comma after it, a period before it, or for the first letter to be capitalised. It’s also fine to use double quotes.

      It’s also worth adding that capitalisation, periods, commas, and quotation marks are all a matter of orthography, not grammar (although the question of whether “so” is acceptable as a conjunction or not is a grammatical one).

      In short, your question doesn’t deviate from Standard English grammar in any way.

      There’s no grammar mistake.

      Although you often see the claim that it’s an error of logic because – allegedly – unique has no degrees, this is not borne out by usage.

      “Very unique” exists – Google Books finds 88,1000 hits in published books http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22very+unique%22&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a#q=%22very+unique%22&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbo=u&tbm=bks&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wp&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=7804156024c18dc2&biw=1366&bih=596 – and is used as an idiom to express the idea of being unique in some particularly outstanding way.

      Being the only person in your family to be able to play the piano or sew cross-stitch is unique, but pretty unexceptional: being the only one in your family who’s an astronaut and won the Nobel Prize would be very unique.

      See Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary of English Usage, page 927 http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=2yJusP0vrdgC&pg=PA927#v=onepage&q&f=false whose citations include:

      I was an English major in school and my grammar still s*cks.
      That’s why I have my book of “standards.” Depending on what, or WHO, your writing this for, you should have an MLB book of standards (or similar) to help you out and keep you consistent.

      As for me correcting you… um… let’s see:

      “Since the typical American eats an average of 126 pounds of potatoes per year, it is clear that the potato is America's most beloved vegetable.” (Great intro paragraph, maybe you can break it up and turn the next sentence into a new paragraph)

      It may not be the prettiest , but the potato is a healthy choice, (this doesn’t flow; try “Looking at a potato, there is nothing too spectacular about its exterior, but inside, the potato has a long list of heath benefits.”)

      (Start a new sentence) (Providing…)providing fiber, potassium and other essential nutrients (add something, here, like “are just a few of the benefits to having potatoes in ones diet”). Not only is the potato a nutritious vegetable, but it can be used in a variety of ways.

      (Start a new paragraph) Potatoes can be found fresh, frozen or instant, (a comma before “and” can go both ways, I like it without the comma, it looks cleaner to me) and can be prepared into soups, salads and sides.

      (New paragraph) Given that potatoes are eaten in 1 (one) out of every 3 (three) meals, potato lovers around the world are developing new recipes every day to satisfy the millions of people who take pride in their potatoes.

      …and then read it backwards for the final check.

      Hope that makes sense.

    What Is The Difference Between ‘grammar Mistake’ And ‘grammatical Mistake’?

    View Comment
    1. Reply

      “Grammar” is a noun, and “grammatical” is an adjective. When we put a noun before a noun the first will somewhat modify the later but in a little bit different manner. Talking about a “football field,” we talk about a “field for football.” In the same manner, talking about “grammar mistake,” we talk about “mistake for grammar.” This interpretation may make a little sense but the words like “grammar suggestions” may do more. Grammatical means “about grammar,” “having to do with grammar,” or “concerning grammar.” If you will talk about some mistakes you found on the sentence in terms of grammar, I’d rather you call them “grammatical mistakes.” However when people say “grammar mistakes,” others understand what they are talking about. It’s just like when we say “It’s me,” and not “It’s I.” This is not a big deal. But it will be if this question is for an examination. Is there any grammarian coming across this question? Please help elaborating it. I want to know more myself.
