I am a copy editor, which by definition makes me a grammar nazi. Every day, I read lots of blogs. I read a couple blogs that are pretty famous, some that aren’t, some of people I know, some of people I don’t. And every day, I encounter some of the same issues. Mostly, people don’t know the difference between its and it’s, and they don’t know to put a period or comma INSIDE a quotation mark. “Like this.” These things drive me insane and really put a damper on my enjoyment of certain blogs.
So I don’t mean to be offensive, really. But you would make all the psychos of the world so much happier if you would follow a few simple grammar rules on your blogs!! For your enjoyment and education, here are Strong Bad’s grammar songs.
If you want it to be possessive, it’s just I-T-S
But if it’s supposed to be a contraction, it’s I-T-APOSTROPHE-S
They’re as different as night and day
And don’t you think that night and day are different?
What’s wrong with you?
And I don’t care how they spell things on the Internet
When you e-mail me, you spell out the whole word
And I don’t care if your cell phone has a camera in it…
I’ve been tempted to hang the y-o-u-r song on my door at work. You think anyone would be offended?
