I have a lot of pet peeves as a writer, and I get “peeved” a lot when I view posts on social media. Just because it is a casual post does not mean you shouldn’t put your best foot forward. Especially if you’re a writer.
If you want to attract potential readers, every post you make on Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Your Own Blog, etc., please take the time to do a fast spell check. Type the post in your word processing software prior to posting it on the site. This will help you catch many grammatical and spelling errors. The last thing you want to do is look uneducated if you’re trying to promote yourself as a writer. Believe me, I’ve seen it a thousand times.
Do yourself a favor and SPELL CHECK IT FIRST!
