Blog Challenge: Help us fix our errors!

As our fourth year of blog posts begins to come to a close, we have almost 900 blog posts that we have to review and update to match our current catalog. This is where we need your help!

So many of you find not only these blog posts but also the catalog descriptions to be useful and we try to update posts and descriptions that have spelling, link, math or even formula problems. However, sometimes we don’t realize there are problems. We want your help to catch the errors you read that need our attention. Every one that brings a blog post or catalog description needing editing to our attention will receive a treasure box with goodies that are samples or leftovers from our Production Department. The more items you help us fix, the more fun goodies we will stuff in your treasure box!

You may be asking, how do I bring a blog post or catalog description to your attention? It is actually very simple! Just comment on the blog that needs our attention and tell us what needs to be changed or updated. When we check the comments to approve, we will go fix the blog you have noted. If there is a catalog description that needs to be changed, then send us an email via the Contact Us page. We will then e-mail you to let you know we have fixed the blog post or catalog description and that we will need a shipping address to send your treasure box.

Doesn’t this sound great? You get to help us update our blog and catalog and you get some treasures to experiment with in return!

We do have a limited quantity of treasure boxes on hand, so don’t delay because you don’t want to miss out on these goodies!

  1. Oh boy, this sounds like fun! I like to joke that I’m a certified nit-picker (I have a BA in Professional Writing and Editing), so I like finding and correcting spelling and grammar mistakes. What if we find a post with a lot of little corrections, like spacing and punctuation issues? Should we just correct those in the comments field, too?

  2. Re: Clear gosseted bags in the catalog
    States…Can sit upright without support and appears bulky.
    Should state:….Can sit upright without support and NOT appear bulky.

    This is in response to the blog challenge, Thanks

  5. I hate to be picky, but just getting into practice for the real thing. I think the first ‘our’ in this sentence should be eliminated
    “review and update to our match our current catalog”

    You will certainly be getting more readers hanging on every word!

  6. Discrepancy in the “new” section. Champagne pump tops say “metal color” while the disk tops say “metal collar”.

    1. The description is correct. The disk tops do have a metal collar which goes around the cap. The pump tops have a metal color to the pump actuator.

  7. Pumpkin spice black tea minor grammatical error: “wards off the chill of the crisp, fall season, and a splash” the comma between crisp and fall should be removed. I love comma splices, but that one is just awkward! <3

    1. Some are awkward. We agree! This one comes directly from The Republic of Tea and we are copying their text exactly as it appears on their site.

  8. Milk Oolong Full Leaf Tea minor grammatical error: “The flavor is smooth with light, orchid notes.” The comma needs to be moved! It should read “The flavor is smooth, with light orchid notes.”

  9. Chamomile buds: “try two soaps, one make exclusively with water” should read “try two soaps, one MADE exclusively with water” =D

  10. One more, then the “new” section is done LOL Did I mention this is the PERFECT thing for me? I LOVE doing this sort of stuff!!

    Summer Melon Fragrance: “better in certain products of classes of products.” Should read “better in certain products OR class of products.”

  11. The description for Argan Oil states “Argan trees product a fruit (nut) that is used…” think it should be “Argan trees PRODUCE..”
