Caution: If You’re Using “Your” Instead of “You’re”, You’re Confused.

Not everyone is confused, of course, but if you’re in the habit of responding (in writing) “your welcome” to someone who just thanked you, you are (confused). You’re one of many, in fact and you’re doing it all over the world-wide web. Your misuse of “your” in this instance means your English teacher somehow failed you. We know you’re not to blame.
your welcome vs you're welcome

Once you read this blog post, however, your teacher is off the hook. You’re now in “the know”. You’re no longer going to use “your” instead of “you’re”, are you?

Don’t be embarrassed. For goodness sake, we all make mistakes. If you’re “guilty” of this one particular grammatical error, you’re forgiven. But now that you’ve seen this message, your continued use of “your” when you should be penning “you’re” means you’re just not paying attention. This suggests to me that your English teacher is not to blame after all. You are! You’re guilty as charged!

Here, if you’re curious, is a list of twelve very common grammar mistakesI confess: I have in the past been guilty of #7 and on more than one occasion.  I’m sure there are many others…

Here is a list of “15 Grammar Goofs That Make You Look Silly” (great infographic!) and according to the blog, Lit Reactor, here are 20 grammar mistakes “that (almost) everyone makes“.

No doubt there are many more lists I could pull up for our mutual benefit but I think this is a good start.

You’re welcome!
