Effort to Improve My English

I decided that I am going to make a conscious effort to improve the level of English on this weblog. Not to improve the writing style but focus on spelling and grammar. I will still occasionally use “but” and “and” at the start of sentences, even though I know it isn’t right. I will still misuse commas and be confused about the proper use of “it’s” and “its” and even about “too” and “to”. I’m an Engineer. My English is far from perfect.
How do I plan on going about improving the English level on my dear old blog? Simple. I plan to read over my entries before hitting the “post” button. Ingenious isn’t it?

    It’s “conscious”, not “concious” ๐Ÿ˜›

    To make an easier transition at the end of the first paragraph, you could simply put: I am an engineer, therefore my english is far from perfect. Although that would imply that all engineers are grammar and spelling retards, which may be the case…. but I doubt it is for everyone..
    (sorry..I just had to comment ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I knew conscious looked wrong. Argghhh!! I might have to spell check before I press the send button.
    Astrid: Trust me. I read and mark lab reports for an engineering course and a lot of them hurt me to read them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. “Not so improve the writing style…”
    Do you mean, ‘Not to improve the writing style…’?
    ๐Ÿ™‚ But, it does sound like good advice. I rarely read over my entries before I post them either.
