  2. Friendly suggestion: have someone proof your spelling. Beautiful info graphic spoiled by many spelling errors. Hate to see all your hard work not reach a wide audience because poor spelling hurts your credibility.

    Thank you for creating and sharing the info graphic!

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Your friendly suggestion went to the wrong person as I am not the creator of the infographic. I tend to land on the side of grace and assume it was probably typos and not intentional spelling errors. Either way, I like the facts and spirit of their infographic. It did not hurt their credibility at all in my eyes…actually increased it because it showed that their human like me.
