I just didn’t know.
After reading a recent article in Slate, I learned that I am making a huge mistake possibly hundreds of times everyday. Until this very blog post, I always put two spaces after a sentence. I remember someone, probably a teacher telling me it was the ‘right’ thing to do. Now I wish I remembered what teacher so that I could write them a letter with one space after a period and tell them what’s what. Eek. I just did it again and had to backspace.
If you are interested in reading the article, here it is. Thank you for your patience as I attempt to correct this apparently bad habit.
If I’ve offended you with my double spacing after a period, please accept my sincere apologies. I am working on it. I promise.
