About

I’ve found that most people don’t like getting their grammar corrected. Even if they don’t mind my corrections, they don’t understand why it is was incorrect. That is the purpose of this site. I am a treasure-trove of grammar knowledge and word facts that you ordinarily would not know. You may find the advice on my page annoying, but you’ll thank me later when it comes in handy 🙂

I receive a lot of feedback from people who throw a conniption because they don’t agree with some of the grammar rules. It’s not necessary to freak out on me. I’m just stating what the rules are mainly in accordance with Strunk and White. I understand that many great writers break conventions in their works. I encourage people to do the same. However, I feel that in order to break conventions, you have to first know what the conventions are.

    Cool! I’m thrilled that you visited my grammatically incorrect site and decided to follow along (I’m sure it’s just like staring at a traffic accident). I will *so* enjoy digging through your rules.

    Thanks for contacting me. I do accept guest posts but only publish them once every three months. I have guest posts for the rest of this year.

      Awesome. Would you mind if I wrote a post for you in exchange for me including 1-3 links in the post?

      • Hugh's Views and News 4 March 2017 at 4:49 am #

        I don’t allow any links in guest posts unless they are for an author’s own work/book. Contact me again at the end of this year when I will be looking for guest posts for 2018.
