Running a website, a blog, and a workshop all at once is very time-consuming. A lot of ink gets spilled on the keyboard, so to speak. That is why it is out of the question to allow room for error. In all honesty, I am not exactly a grammar and language prodigy. But as some of you are avid readers and literary buffs, I thought that if by proposing you go on a hunt for spelling and other grammatical errors, I could then reward you for your work! This is why I am launching this “treasure hunt” for all kinds of typographical, spelling and grammatical faults in the articles published on my website.
All hard work deserves recompense. That is why, in order to properly thank the many readers who have helped me improve the quality of my articles, I am proposing a hunt for spelling mistakes and other errors that my faulty penmanship may have caused..
Participation in mistake hunting can earn you up to 10% off your next purchase
I suspect you are all anxious to find out how I intend to reward your participation. I gleaned this idea from a teacher who used to give extra credit to students who could spot mistakes that were purposely written into their assignments’ subject line. Of course we will never know if this was really done on purpose, or if it was simply this teacher’s way of saving face in front of both students and parents…
…but I digress. I would like to propose bonus points in the form of discounts for each (unintentional!) mistake you find. Each correction will award you a 1% cumulative discount on your next purchase in my store. You will be able to accumulate up to 10 corrections per basket purchased, with a maximum discount of 10% off your purchase.
So how does mistake hunting work?
