I think the end quote marks are in the wrong place. Shouldn't they come at the end of the actual blog? Then the info about the book comes separately?

I do hope you don't mind my mentioning it. smile

from a very appreciative of all your excellent services, JBF. smile

Hi, Jingle. Thank you, I'll pass this on smile

Thank you. smile

Sorry to be pedantic.

What a great eye for detail you have, jingl smile

'fraid when we do guest posts, the system quotes the whole text and doesn't leave any space for a separate info box.

Hope you're having a lovely evening.

But... but... It only involves moving the last pair of quote marks.

I don't think you understand what I mean. (wrings hands in the frustration only known to committed pedants) Have a quick look! (pretty please) The apostrophes need to come after the word "sixty" at the end. Not after the word "Amazon".

Just a quick look. here is a link to it to make it quick and easy

Oh, you don't need to bother. I will take extra meds a chill pill.

I hope you are having a lovely evening too. smile

I do understand what you mean. The quote marks are preset to quote everything in the box...

Can I ask, if I may, it hasnt come from an actual blog has it?
It is pieces of a book, put together, but not in the order they are in the book? As the very last paragraph doesnt really seem to carry on from the other parts.

While the pedants are here, may I ask whether one or two quotation marks is correct, or doesn't it matter? I tend to use only one, out of laziness.

I am referring to the inverted commas, not the positioning at beginning and end.

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 13-Nov-15 09:08:15

Well they should un-preset 'em then! [tears hair and howls]

That's fine Kat. I'm fine too. smile

Following this avidly, I realise how desperate I am to not tackle the ironing this morning grin
