This is another common mistake. It’s also easily avoided by thinking through what you’re trying to say.

“It’s” is a contraction of “it is” or “it has.” “Its” is a possessive pronoun, as in “this blog has lost its mojo.” Here’s an easy rule of thumb-repeat your sentence out loud using “it is” instead. If that sounds goofy, “its” is likely the correct choice.
