Spelling Mistakes

So you may have noticed I have some recipes listed over there on the right hand side. These are the ones that people visit my blog for most often, which is why I feature them on the sidebar. But a funny thing happened the other day when I was scrolling down to answer blog comments - this picture caught my eye.
Notice anything out of the ordinary?

Yes - I spelled MACARONI wrong. In March. And it has taken me until the end of August to notice. (Needless to say, spelling is not my strong suit, and I rely heavily on spell check. I was also that kid who didn't seem to "get" spelling until upper elementary/middle school.) 

Hopefully by the time you're reading this it'll be fixed ;)

Are you a good speller?

  1. Horrid speller in school - but OK now that most browsers auto spell check (and wordpress is dumb, and sometimes they get me, but mostly I outsmart them). They say the more you read the easier it gets?!

  2. I used to be. now I make a daunting number of mistakes that I can't see and people don't point out unless it interrupts meanings.

    1. Yeah - I don't see mine either! It's much easier for me to find other people's mistakes.

  3. I have an eagle eye for spelling and grammar but I try not to let it take over my life!

    1. There are certain grammar things that really bother me, but plenty more that I don't understand . .

    1. Btw... how are you supposed to spell macaroni? It looks right to me...
      Oh wait! "Maraconi" I see it now. Dyslexics untie!!!

    2. It's funny . . I made a new label for that picture this weekend and when I first typed it, I misspelled macaroni again. Good grief.

  5. Sometimes you just look at something so often that you see what you expect to see rather than what is really there!

    1. Exactly - it's been years since I used a dictionary. I use google and it usually figures out what I'm trying to spell ;)

  7. My mum is a teacher who loves to point out spelling mistakes (and misplaced apostrophes) whenever we go anywhere, so my spelling is pretty good :) However, I have been guilty of staring at something for a long time, but missing blindingly obvious mistakes!

    1. Apostrophes are easier for me to notice for whatever reason. Maybe because the rules for apostrophes don't seem as tricky?
