Sorry, folks, still working on that thesis. >___<
Recently, on a German beauty blog I follow, someone mentioned a spelling mistake the blogger makes a lot, and pretty much every other comment was about how this one person who dared to highlight the mistake should stop caring so much or just open a spelling blog instead.
I don't think that a typo is the end of the world, but I do like to read blogs that are as mistake-free as possible, and I would definitely appreciate it if you pointed out any mistakes to me, especially since I'm writing this blog in a language that's not my native one.
So while I agree that a mistake is not a big deal, I don't think we should go and attack someone who points one out in a nice way.
This also made me think how some beauty bloggers are totally meticulous about their eye make-up or foundation routine, but don't care about spelling or grammar all that much. Why can't we put a little effort into both? It's a way of showing respect to your readers, if you ask me.
Plus, considering beauty bloggers probably have a bit of a "dumb" image already, we should really try and show the world that make-up is not all we have in (or on) our heads, shouldn't we? We are smart, too, and we don't want to feed any stupid rumours by making stupid mistakes in our entries, don't you agree?
What do you think about this?
