Quite helpful, thank you! Similar to when people mistaken “your” and “you’re” quite often too. I tend see “Your welcome” instead of “You’re welcome.”
Other than that hopefully other can see this since it’s well explained and easily to comprehend :slightly_smiling_face:

I need a blog for effect and affect
Then and than.

This one is such an easy thing to mess up! I completely understand which one I should use and when, but I still catch myself messing up all the time! You can understand the difference and how to use them, but unless you carefully watch what you type/write you can easily find yourself using the wrong ones. I’m luckily someone who reads over what I’m typing a lot as I type it, often reading a sentence I just typed three times before I even finish the next sentence. That’s how I catch myself often having typed the wrong one. Without watching your typing, you can spell it incorrectly and have the wrong one without even noticing.

I’m so glad that I’ve never really had a problem with that. In school, they gave us hundreds of exercises with those so we really won’t ever mix them up. The problem is that if I see someone messing them up, it kind of annoys me. Not really annoying, but it’s just very weird to me and makes me stop reading. So please, can everyone read this blog posts if you don’t know which one to use? Everything is explained so well! :pleading_face:
