Find Spelling Errors, Win a Guide Book

As you've probably noticed if you're a regular reader of BizNetTravel, I suck at spelling, but Steve really sucks at spelling. In the interest of turning a weakness into a strength and as a shameless stunt to build regular readership for the blog and introduce new customers to our travel agency, we hereby announce that we will award travel guides to readers who can spot mistakes of spelling, punctuation or grammar on the BizNetTravel Travel Log. Here are the rules:

  • Be the first to spot an error by noting it in the comments feature of the post in question

  • To win a book, you must find errors in two separate posts

  • Any one reader can win a maximum of two books

  • No going back into the archive. This promotion starts now for posts going forward

  • Unless we chose choose to extend it, this is a two-month promotion that will expire on October 31

  • American spelling rules apply. References to settle any disputes will be for spelling, The New Well-Tempered Sentence for punctuation and The Deluxe Transitive Vampire for grammar

  • If you find legit errors in two separate posts, we will send you a travel guide of your choice from among these titles from DK Publishing
Steve and I, meanwhile, won't make any special extra effort to make fewer spelling errors in that time (no spell checking, as usual), nor will we go out of our way to make any more. Sounds fun? Let's see.


Oh yeah, and another thing: mistakes Steve and I might make in the comment threads on any given post don't count. Playable errors count only in the main body of blog posts.

Spelling error #1: "Unless we chose to extend it" should be "Unless we choose to extend it"

Okay, nevermind, "chose" is actually proper here. What the heck do I know.

Actually, David, I'll give you that. I meant choose and grammatically it should ideally by "were to choose" in the subjunctive, but otherwise I think "choose" is preferable to "chose." Find another mistake in another post, and a book is yours!

Oooh boy, the gods of this contest are as generous as they are wise. Thanks, Rick!

Well, to be perfectly honest, we get a discount on the books.
