It doesn’t take a genius

You don’t have to be a genius to know how to spell homogeneous. And if you can’t spell it (like the editors at yahoo.com), perhaps you could ask your employer for one of those newfangled thingies called a spell-checker. I hear they work quite well.

    LoL. You’re at it again, I see. Why haven’t they found your blog yet and fired every writer on staff?

      I’m “at it” every day. Some writers and/or editors found my blog when I first started it and followed it for years. But I don’t know if current staffers know about it. I can’t imagine Yahoo firing its writers because of the quality of their writing. It’s just not important to the company. As long as the articles get clicks, that’s all that matters.

        I know. But haven’t seen you in my feed for a bit. I do follow quite a few blogs.

        I can’t imagine any company specialising in content thinking it’s actually beneficial to hire people with poor skills and lazy commitments to quality.

        You are right though. It seems to be all about the clicks. You should start commenting on the articles themselves if you don’t already.

        • Laura Says:

          I don’t comment on the content of the articles unless they contain a blatant factual error. And many of them do! Otherwise, I restrict my content to the writing by actual Yahoo writers and editors, and not content from other sources. My hope is that my comments on the writing is somewhat instructive and occasionally entertaining.

        • Alex Says:

          I confirm. They have definitely been entertaining and instructive.
