Many people have a lot of difficulty using apostrophes properly—until now. I have created a video which will go a long way to helping you understand how to use apostrophes correctly.
Do you know the difference between its and it's? Is it okay to write 10's when you mean 10s (tens–as in the plural)?
From hero to zero with apostrophes in just four minutes! Believe it? Believe it!

That's (that is) a very good and informative video. As a writer, I cringe when I see people use apostrophes incorrectly. I think I will begin to share your video with them. It was a very easy to follow, simple way to show how, when and why apostrophes are used.
Thank you for your kind comments. So, you're a writer? What do you write about? Go ahead and post a link to your work here is you like, I don't mind. 😊 If you share my video with other people, thank you, I appreciate it.
Have a marvellous day.
This is awesome! You're certainly right about how people get the apostrophes wrong. I can't count how many people use "it's," when they should be using "its." Then of course, we have the ones that use the word "your," when they should be using "you're." Next to the comma and semicolon, I think it's one of the most confusing punctuation marks to get the hang of. Thanks for sharing! I'll be sure to share this on social media.
You're awesome! 😊👍 Thank you for your kind endorsement and encouragement.
I agree with you completely that apostrophes confuse many people, but I aver that they are child's play compared to the full horrors of commas. I think anyone'd be severely tasked to present a four-minute video on commas which was anything but a nearly incomprehensible and ineffective list of dos and don'ts.
