Tech Teach: The Double Space is Dead
Because writing is a part of everyone’s life (especially a blogger), I found this new tidbit of information to be kind of funny and strange and interesting all at the same time.
Did you know? You should only put once space after a period in a sentence!
Do you put one or two spaces after a period in a sentence? We were taught in school to put in two. Apparently these are the “old typewriter rules” and they no longer apply? Check out this article that explains the WHY behind this new thinking.
In addition to that, Grammar Girl (isn’t she cute?) puts her two cents in about this topic as well. Click on the image below to read the full article. Her verdict – She agree’s the double space is dead. So break your old habits, folks!
Am I the only one who didn’t know this or is this news to everyone? And just for fun, I tried to write this entire post with only one space after periods. Who knew!
