Every Day vs. Everyday

I see this all the time.

Please note, world, that everyday is not the same as every day. They mean different things.

Memorize the following from Grammarist.com:

Everyday vs. every day

Everyday is an adjective used to describe things that (1) occur every day, or (2) are ordinary or commonplace. In the two-word phrase every day, the adjective every modifies the noun day, and the phrase usually functions adverbially. For example, every day you eat breakfast. You brush your teeth every day. Maybe you go for a walk every day. These are everyday activities.
When you’re not sure which one to use, try replacing everyday/every day with each day. If each day would make sense in its place, then you want the two-word form. Everyday, meanwhile, is synonymous with daily or ordinary, depending on its sense.

Ask any learned person how they became learned. They'll say they read a lot.

Thank you.
