Top ten most misspelled words in blogs!

Here’s a list of the top ten most often misspelled words. Pay attention though, because these are words that spellcheck can miss based on the context in which we use the word, or because a few of the words are homophones (words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings) and we use them incorrectly in the sentence. Make sure that you’ve got foolproof control over them, especially if you tend to write around 3am in the morning!

1.) Your - You're
2.) Then - Than
3.) Its - It's
4.) To - Too - Two
5.) Were - Where - We're
6.) There - Their - They're
7.) A - An - And
8.) Off - Of
9.) Here - Hear
10.) Lose - Loose

One last word my father hammered into my brain many year ago: "alot" is not a word, it's "a lot".
