Yup, I’m a copywriter

Around 7:45 p.m. I noticed a blunder on the Boston Globe’s website, Boston.com. Can you find it? (Click on the image to see it better.)

Yup: They wrote “Cheat eats,” not “Cheap eats.” It’s not the biggest deal in the world, but it’s too bad one of the biggest newspapers in the country had such a glaring error. Around 8:15 p.m. I checked the site again and the issue was fixed.

    I catch stuff like that all the time. It drives my husband crazy when I point out the errors in the headlines and tags on the TV news. I just can’t help myself!

    I can totally identify! Do you have a job that’s editing-related?

    For some reason i searched for Boston Globe, and this was the first result that wasn’t boston.com, bostonglobe.com, legacy.com or wikipedia.com. I’m impressed!

    That’s awesome! Though it may be because you were signed in to your Google account, and had personalized search results.
