What prompted me to write this one is clicking a blog post recently, and upon going through the post in it’s entirety, I wondered how come some of us bloggers really don’t give much though to keep the spellings, typography, grammar and language coherent and accurate, so that our efforts don’t fade away somewhat.
I will try to keep this short. 🙂 And once again, like my earlier post on book reviews, I will make it quite clear that, my intention is not to disrespect and hurt any fellow blogger. But I wish to talk about something which is quite real and close to my heart.
Being a product of English medium schooling, I had developed an affinity towards the English language from a very early age. During my childhood days, my mother used to teach me English, and she was quite strict in trying to make me perfect in the writing and composition segment, with specific stress on keeping the words and sentences perfect and meaningful. And trust me, I had grown exactly in the same way in all these years, to make me aware of my mistakes and rectifying them, so that I can write well and without mistakes. That’s why I get a bit disheartened and sometimes angry if I see mindless mistakes by writers in their writing.
And that said, when I see these days, some bloggers and writers don’t even bother to check and re check what they write, it pains me. While some of them are talented writers, and they can easily express and explain to the readers what are they trying to say, but many of them fail
Particularly, in an era of so many helpful resources right at everyone’s disposal, sometimes a carelessly written blog post, article or any other piece of writing can raise serious eyebrows, when the writers become so much nonchalant and ignorant of the intelligence of their readers. My honest request to everyone including me, will be, please let us have a check and if possible a second or third recheck of what we are writing. If we do that, then we can rectify many unwanted, ignorant or any other mistakes due to lack of knowledge, and can make our creations free of clutter and perfect in expressions.
Hoping many of you will agree with me on this one. Please do let me know what you feel regarding this, and what kind of advise you can give to all fellow bloggers and writers in keeping their writings clean and beautiful. Also if you find any improvements which I could have done in this post, do let me know in the comments section below :). Till next time, stay safe and healthy.
