There are two apostrophe errors on the front page here. What can be done? : lol

Mothers Writing Group should be Mothers' Writing Group... and what was the other one... Freelancers. No apostrophe needed there.

I know I'm a big geek. I swear you'll learn to love me.

I say both are good catches. I'm always pointing that kind of stuff out to the point that my husband is always rolling his eyes at me. Nice to know another punctuation geek is out there!

I should probably be doing something else right now.

Just kidding! I noticed one of those errors, but didn't know who to mention it to. (to whom to mention it? ).

Maybe, though, it's kind of like Mothers (Writing Group), so that Mothers (plural) is a modifier, not a possessor) of Writing Group.

It would still need an apostrophe after the s, though. Mother's singular, mothers' plural.

Hee hee I haven't had a chance to post about apostrophes... ever?
