Well that is excellent advice that I shall be sure to heed in future. :)

Hi Linda,

I'll be watching ;-)



It's all pretty basic (no value judgement on what you wrote), but I am still surprised by the number of sites that get it wrong.

The Internet is a pioneering medium that is still very much in its infancy. How can businesses utilise the latest developments - blogs, social media and Internet TV - if they cannot get the basics?

But then again how many people go to school and college for years and still cannot write proficiently?

The points raised by Rob are important. I'm thinking about starting a blog and at the moment am touring the blogsphere. I'm amazed at the number of good sites I find by people who appear to be well-qualified, who present themselves as experts on writing, but who cannot write very well or who don’t have a thorough grasp of the rules of grammar. I know it must sound picky, but I can’t help but wonder what texting and (bad) blogging will do to English eventually. And I’m not a stick-in-the-mud – it’s about clear communication. Even the piece here I'm commenting on has an error - no need for the comma in the headline : )

Hi Erin, many thanks for your comment. Well there is no time like the present to start a site and ultimately interesting articles will get read, linked to and mentioned by others. Once you get up and running, drop back in on the site and point us to it.
All the best, Craig
