Spelling mistakes in blog, need help and advice

Posted by on Apr. 3, 2013 at 7:15 AM

Hi, I have a blog in English although it's not my native language. Someone told me that it's better not write at all than to write with misspells. Do you agree with this? 
Currently I can't afford to hire someone to fix this misspells. 
I use spell checker and Google, but I guess it's not enough, the problem is that because of my poor English I can't see those mistakes.
What do you think should I do, would love to read some suggestions.
Thanks.
P.S. This is my blog, if you have a minute

'Someone' was wrong! I commend your knowledge of a second language. I make lots of spelling errors, too. And I can only speak English! Write away happily, misspellings and all. 

Happy Blogging,

I read a few of your entries, and while its pretty clear English probably isn't your first language, I didn't see snything completely atrocious. The phrasing is kind of odd and some words are not quite right.

I read your entire first page and didn't find a misspelling.  Is it more than 1 person making this comment?  If so then I might take it a little more seriously, if not I would accept the fact the is a negative Nancy and move on.  If she brings it up again I would tell you checked with others and they couldn't find what she was speaking of could she possible show you exactly where they are.

I would just ignore it - if it's one person, they may just be a troll.

I think it is great that you are blogging! Just keep up with you are doing with spell checking and such and don't worry about what one person is saying!

If you want, I was an English major with a 4.0, and used to always help my teacher correct papers, lol. I am more than happy to point out grammar mistakes. The only thing I saw was grammar mistakes, not spelling. I think your blog is very nice. 

Can I give you my honest opinion though? I like your mistakes, as odd as that may sound. I don't find them hard to follow or scratching my head. It makes me feel like I am sitting acorss from you and listening to you talk. It adds charm and a touch of whimsy to your post. It makes it uniquely you. I wouldn't change it.
