because people speak English
I want to share a quick tip about tagging! A tag is a keyword. You can add tags to the blogs, photos, and videos you post on MyEC. This makes it easier for members to search for specific content. It also helps English learners learn new words! Use a space after each tag.
If you want to use a phrase or expression with more than one word in your tag, you have to add quotation marks around the words. For example: "Why did the pope quit?". If you don't use quotations, the tag will look like this when you post your content:
Members often ask how to get corrections on their blog posts. The best way is to use the tag "corrections". A teacher or advanced learner might see this tag. They may offer you some tips in the comments of your post. I often offer writing tips when I see that tag. If I don't see your tag, let me know. If someone takes the time to offer a tip, please take the time to edit your content and correct your error. Some members like to show their edits by using the strikeout feature. This helps others learn.Highlight the word or phrase you are changing and choose the S feature. When you are done, click on the S again to disable strikeout. If you are going to help with corrections on blog posts, stick to one or two tips per blog post. Don't correct every error. Nobody learns that way. Instead of making the corrections, you may want to offer suggestions and challenge members to make their own corrections.
