Are you like me?  Even though I know it’s ‘its‘ that I want, my fingers type ‘it’s‘ when what I really meant was  ‘its’.  Just this morning I caught myself using ‘whose’ when what I really meant to say was ‘who’s’.  Thank goodness for grammar check!  It surprises me every time I see someone who doesn’t know the sometimes subtle differences between nouns, verbs, and adjectives and the infamous dangling participle.  For writers who want to present themselves as professional this is the kiss of doom.  Your reader will be jarred and thrown off  ‘the cadence of reading’ by your goofy grammar.  I loved this article and graphic offered by copyblogger.com.  Really a good one to save!
