Apart from pre-installed spellcheck in my blog programme, I have another human keeping a careful watch over my blog posts. She has an MA in English Literature and was also a popular lecturer in two famous colleges for ladies in Mumbai.
The latest policing that she did was when she saw my post “There Is A Rough Sense Of Justice In The World” she caught a typo. Instead of Sense, I had typed Sence and quite how the spellcheck missed that I do not know.
She sent a message to me before anyone else could read that and I was able to correct and update my post.
Thank you dear Grammar Police Woman.
(Psst, she is none other than my one and only sister Padmini who has stopped blogging for some inexplicable reason.)

Critics… Not capable of any original work… That’s why they poke their nose into other people’s blogs!

And my smart phone outsmarted me
Spell check Spy… (Not Soy)
I also go by the name Dame Quixote
Ah, now it makes sense. You have now become a critic rather than a writer and also one who depends on her smartphone!
whilst I was away I had only my smart phone and I was trying to say “browning” on a f/b page (possibly mine) and f/b keep popping up a box with M… Brown for me to insert. M… Brown is a young relative of mine, if the post had arrived on his page, he would’ve been very confused.

I can relate to that frustrating experience of using the smart phone with autocorrect!
It’s clear that you give due respect to the ladies in your life!does Padmini also receive a proof reader’s fee?
Kylie, I don’t give due respect to the ladies in my life. The whole lot of them control my life. Proof Reader’s fee? She can take what she wants from me without ever having to ask for it and without having to say thanks.
I would watch her do a vlog on cooking! even if I never made it myself.
I loved it when she was doing those.
please pass this message along to Dame Quixote.
I will indeed. It is a pity that due to her current preoccupations she has stopped vlogging as well as blogging. She is however, one busy lady.
As a rule, I’m not too bothered by people’s misspellings, typos, bad grammar etc, as long I can understand what they’re saying. But I do get irritated by the endless misuse of the apostrophe. Is the correct usage really so hard to grasp? It seem’s so….
That bugs me too.
How lucky you are to have a grammar policewoman — an unfair advantage for correctness over those of us on our own. Also, an “out” — now whenever we err here, we can simply say, “…but we don’t have a double-checker!” 🙂
Indeed I am. Not only because she is a double checker but also for a number of other reasons.
It’s a blessing to have a grammar police. I have two in my life: one male and another female. I thank G-d for them every day :).
So, why has your sister stopped blogging, did you find out?

She has to manage two homes in two different cities as well manage a serious writing for the press and magazines career. She cannot find the time for blogging.
