The Blogger Spelling Test
Bloggers do get a misspelled word once in a while (some bloggers more often than that, but anyway). If you want to test your skills you can try the Blogger Spelling Test.
There are 15 questions with common misspelled words. Most of them are quite easy, just don’t run through the questions or you might end up getting one wrong like I did, for my embarassment. 😉

That’s a spiffy piece of linkbait that mingle2 created. I love it!
Hmm, I only scored 87%. Maybe that’s why I don’t have a writing tips blog. 🙂
Yeah it is for sure a linkbait, in fact the main site has nothing to do with the topic.
You manage a blog called Daily Writing Tips and you only scored a 93%?? What is wrong with you!?
Totally just kidding. There were a few of those I had to look at twice, I can definitely see how you could overlook some random stuff.
Thanks for the link!
but I don’t know where I was wrong! 🙁
All of you get a nice score, i just get 80% 🙂
Faisca, yeah in fact I just manage it 🙂 . The head “tipper” is Maeve, our English Ph.D.!
Wow! I got the whooping 100% – I’m the greatest of all 😉
You’ll be relieved to know that I scored the 100%, but I almost slipped up on “embarrassment.” Which would have been one!
As a teacher, I never cared for the type of spelling test that requires students to look at misspelled words. I think such tests tend to reinforce incorrect spellings.
I enjoyed taking this one, though.
Maeve, I had to think for a bit about embarrassment as well! That’s a tricky word.
Only 87% but I guess that it is decent as I’m not a native English speaker/writer. Luckily, I did nicely on my american college english test though. College level it was! 😀
Anyhow, there’s always Apples automatic spellchecker. 😉
Daniel, the problem of some of those words is that spell checkers won’t catch the mistake.
Like then/than or loose/lose. Both are correct words with different meaning. So make sure to proof read also after running the spell checker!
I attempted to post the html code from my test here on Daily Writing Tips. That didn’t go so well, so I’ll have to resort to telling you how I scored.
100% baby!! Yeah!!! Hooray for me!!! Yay!!!
That just proves that I’ve been reading Daily Writing Tip. :-0
I got 93% too, not bad considering English isn’t my primary language.
93% and I quite happy with this results
At least I score A for this test 🙂
🙂 93% is not bad…i will share the words with my kids to remind them.
thanks a lot
Not surprised. I really struggle with my spelling. Fortunately, my wife who is an excellent speller, reads most of my blog postings within a day or two of putting them out there. She keeps me straight.
I got 93%. I really got confused with embarrasment/embarrassment.
very interesting, but I don’t agree with you
I got 93%, too. I was hoping for 100%, but it’s better than 2%.
It’s definitely not definately.
I’m absolutely sick of seeing the word definitely misspelled as definately on blogs and websites not to mention texts.
Come on folks, at least make the effort. The correct way is ou thee of you really care.
got 87% not bad..
i don’t believe him but i can’t help myself to follow my heart not escape but to love him more and more…
