    That's pretty cool. I know I question myself on the issues of "affect vs. effect" and "me vs. I"

    One I saw that wasn't mentioned is who vs. whom...I struggle with that as well.

    They only one I have problems with every now & then is affect/effect. I always get them mixed up.

    And I say "literally" quite a bit when I don't mean it. I don't care.

    "Thank you so much. No matter what, nothing is possible without you behind the scenes bustin heads and takin names. Thank you again. Everything you have done for me means a lot and nothing has gone unnoticed. I love you so much and thank you for saying 'I do.'"

    I do all of those on occasion.

    I sometimes try to use figuratively or metaphorically in place of literally. But I occasionally slip up and use literally.

    I know that I certainly slip up on all of those at times!

    I wish I could post that on some of my FB friends' pages. My biggest pet peeve on the list is the difference between "your" and "you're."

    I'm such a grammar nerd. I cringe when people do things from that list!
