Grammar is an important factor of good writing, yet we often see poor grammar nearly everywhere: Facebook; corporate emails; Twitter; and everything in between are a showcase for our grammar skills, be they good or poor.
I once worked on the IT Help Desk for McCain Foods, and we often had to send a status report, via email, to literally every VIP in the company. Despite the high-profile recipient list, some co-workers would send emails that belonged in a middle school rather than a multi-billion dollar corporation. Run-on sentences, zero punctuation, spelling errors, and any other writing mistake you can imagine was found in these emails that went straight to every manager, director, VP, and chief officer – including the CEO. I’m sure you’ve seen this kind of thing before, too.
That’s why we’re here.
Your grammar is almost certainly much, much better than what I described above, but most of us have questions about grammar or are making small mistakes that can be easily fixed. We’ve created a resource page for you specifically for this purpose.
We will be writing blogs geared towards improving your grammar and to better communicate your message with your clients, coworkers, and even family and friends. Stay tuned, and keep your pencils ready – the first post is coming soon!
