And my only excuse is that I’m human

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but typos happen. Seriously. Some days it doesn’t matter how many times I re-read my words, typos appear like seagulls at Maccas.

When I started my business, I thought I was top shit. If I saw a typo on a business’ website, I’ll send them a message and let them know. Then when I received no responses I realised why – it’s a twat act.

And being a copywriter for 7 years has taught me not to be a twat. I churn out so much content that yep – I have the occasional typo.

And now when I see others make a typo – I smile. I know I’m not alone in my slip ups in this ‘oh so professional, I’m so perfect’ online world.

Let’s end the year by not only celebrating our successes, but our hilarious slip ups.

Here are some of my favourite copywriting typos:

Good luck to our future generations!

See how funny our typos can be? Let’s make 2017 the year we share funny typos, not to criticise, but to celebrate being a human running a business.

If you’ve got any funny typos, I’d love for you to share them.

Until 2017, take care and keep smiling.

Great Copywriting (typo-free) Starts Now!
