Morning all – this is a post for me, so apologies in advance – and it’s with regard to one of my pet hates (and, I am aware, a pet hate of many of yours, dear internet-dwelling word herders) – the misplaced apostrophe.
I am not going into this here, as you’ll know what I’m talking about and if you don’t, then it’s likely that you make apostrophic errors and, if I were you, I’d keep your head down, do da clickety onna linky and NEVER MAKE THESE MISTAKES AGAIN.
(In actual fact, I like this whole blog – Boggleton Drive – and so should you, dearest Blog Trotters. This stuff is important.)
(Even if the apostrophe post has a split infinitive in it. Mind, I was told recently that split infinitives don’t matter any more, so who am I etc etc etc.)

I like to friggin’ split infinitives whenever I want 😉
Thanks for linking this! I’m enjoying your blog; you are a skilled writer
I’m afraid the infinitive was doomed from the the moment the starship Enterprise boldly went and, in fairness and in some sentences, it is the devil’s own job unsplitting it in a satisfactory manner anyway. Life is too short.
Thanks for your comment – genuinely enjoyed your blog, and I shall visit again.
