Like public television, though, we rely on viewer's* like you. Send in your examples of misplaced apostrophes**; pictures are preferred to text, but in a pinch, text will do.After all, its all about keeping the apostrophe in it's proper place, isnt it?
*Yeah, that was intentional.
** You're/your mix-ups are definitely fair game; so too are they're/there and it's/its. Too, to, and two, though, are right out, because none of those words have apostrophes.

Our challenge has been accepted, and a new language blog takes on the cause of the well-placed apostrophe
Founded, like it's parent, The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks, on the principle that there's no better example than a good bad example, The Blog of Badly-Placed Apostrophe's launched yesterday, taking up the challenge we posed in our recent Lands' End post. We hope that legions of punctuation mavens everywhere will respond to their appeal.
