I just read an interview with Tim Carbone wherein the writer gives us a good interview, but blows it with things like the above-mentioned error when talking about music transitions. He used segway. Maybe I’m being pedantic (I’m not), but really, if you’re going to write, whether online or for print publication, get a good grasp on spelling. Understand that spell-checkers will not always capture your errors, and leave you looking stupid.
I hate when I make obvious spelling errors, but usually it’s simply because I was in a rush. I always go back and correct the errors in posts, sometimes months later.
Having an editor is all well and good, but it’s best to give them your best possible draft to make their work easier, and to make you look less of an under-educated person. Their job is not to be a spell-checker for you.
And if you’re the writer of the article mentioned above, nothing personal, but it really bugs me when I come across things like this.
