We’re big advocates of conversational writing that’s engaging, persuasive, and fun. So that means it’s perfectly fine to fracture the occasional stuffy grammatical rule (and many times it’s preferable).
On the other hand, making some grammatical errors just makes you look bad, and hurts your effectiveness. Sometimes we even misuse words simply because we hear others use them incorrectly.
So, we’ve assembled the 15 most egregious grammar goofs into one helpful infographic. With this handy reference, you’ll never look silly again.
Thanks once again to our friends at BlueGlass for the infographic design that makes my silly little words look cool. Enjoy!

This is a huge accomplishment, as the company said it had reached five million nights booked less than six months ago.
In the U.S., about 4.4 million nights have been booked, which is a 300% jump from this time last year. Although demand for Airbnb accommodations in the U.S. has increased 240% in the last year, it also has 95,000 listings in Europe alone and 20,000 properties across Central and South America.
