Typos. So easy to make, but oh so embarrassing when people notice.
I am one of those strange people who actually takes the time to tell a writer if I find a typographical error. If I can find an email address, I’ll send a message directly to the writer. Because it’s not about finger pointing or shaming. I’ll sometimes even spend time hunting for that elusive contact form. I’ve been doing it for years. Yes, I’m that kind of guy. Mostly because I like a nice and neat internet, and because I know writers appreciate it.
But lately, I’ve been thinking of ways of making money on my hobby. Sort of like an old gold-rush spectator, but looking for typos instead of gold.

One writers typo, another mans gold
A message for Google Photo: There is a typo in the Norwegian language version of https://photos.google.com/apps?hl=no. It says «Automatisk opplasring», should be «opplasting». If this was useful you may send a small amount of your own choosing to https://www.paypal.me/mskogly
