3 Reasons I Won’t Judge Your Spelling

Please excuse the spelling and handwriting

So say many of my clients. I really don’t mind some dodgy spelling though, in fact, I welcome it and this is the reason why.

Bad spelling is often a sign of a creative mind

Our minds work in odd ways and it seems that people who are very visual find the words on a page thing a bit of a puzzle. They also find the English language very odd. Two too and to or there and their, I won’t go on.

I wouldn’t want you to judge my drawing or painting

I know a lot of people with a talent that astounds me. They draw, paint, make things and have endless ideas. I really wouldn’t want them to judge (or even see) my drawings. I can make it as far as stick men but that’s about as far as it goes. We all have different things we find easy so we shouldn’t look down on others who find these things hard.

Its My Job, Not Yours

My job is to produce a well presented document which has accurate spelling and grammar. I expect you to get lost in your work and keep your creative flow.

My Tip To You

Always spell a word as it sounds. It may not be correctly spelt but everyone reading it will understand what you mean. And apostrophes (‘) – if you’re not sure, don’t. This is because people are more likely to notice a wrong one rather than a missing one.

You can also use a programme on your pc such as Grammarly.com which automatically highlights any spelling or grammatical mistakes and helps you fix them.

Is Spelling Important?

Yes and no. Spelling helps people understand us. When writing for ourselves and people who know and understand us already it’s not important. If we need to fill in a form, or make an impression on someone we don’t know, it’s more important to get it right. In that case, it is better to ask a family member friend or VA to help you rather than spend hours stressing out about it.

I work for creative people, who prefer visual things to the written word, people with lots of ideas and not a lot of time. If I can help you therefore, either with your social media, some typing or transcription, please call me on 07974 701526 or email to [email protected] I will be glad to help.

Auto post to Instagram

Posting to Instagram can be a faff.

Until recently even when using Buffer and Hootsuite you still needed to go in and post manually after a reminder.

Not Any More!

You can now post directly but there are three things you need to ensure to post directly;

1️⃣ Your IG profile needs to be a business profile

2️⃣ You need to go into settings on that profile and do a whole link through to a Facebook page thing to enable direct posting.

3️⃣Your picture must have a ratio of 4:5 or 1:1.91, easily adjusted in your photo editor.

Only one image can be posted at a time, but you can add text.

I’m delighted by it. It takes all of the faff out auto-posting to IG and you can post from any device.

So, if Instagram is part of your marketing strategy, it got a whole lot easier!

Will you use this facility? Do you use it already?
