As new bloggers, we are certainly learning as we go. I personally struggle writing with humor and thought including the simple wordplay of using vane/vein to both mean “along the same line (vein)” and spelling it “vane” as in “weather vane” was amusing. I am working on incorporating some of my personality into posts — flaws and all!. Having two small children has created an appreciation for how complicated English can be!

It might be a pun if spoken, but when written you merely reveal the error of spelling and kill whatever little joke there was to begin with. Adding “pun intended” doesn’t make it so.
