Want to Look Smart?

Want to be taken seriously, bloggers and blog commenters, copywriters, and wannabe authors of best-selling books? Learn how to spell and use punctuation!



And please learn before you contract for my services, or you're going to be paying a lot of money that you shouldn't really have to. I'm expensive. You just want to be paying for help with transition, flow, comprehensiveness, documentation, concision, and clarity—not all of that plus the basics of spelling and punctuation.

Firefox has an addon which spell checks form input.

And Blogger now has a spelling-checker tool for new posts, although I don't think that it has one for comments. It's always possible to use a word-processing program (Microsoft Word, etc.) for checking spelling: Copy your blog post or comment and paste it into your word-processing program (or compose it there in the first place), and then run the program's spelling checker. Don't bother with Word's grammar checker; it's useless.
