How do you feel about good grammar? As bloggers, we use our thoughts, ideas, and creativity to express ourselves in words (or pictures), on our blogs. Do you think that grammar is it not that important in your daily life? Does it irk you when people use “your” rather than “you’re”, as in “Your looking good today!” which should in fact be “You’re looking good today!”
I must confess, the use of the English word “fun” bothers me. Yes, it does. Not that I do not like fun. Of course I do! Who doesn’t like a little fun? However, I’ve unfortunately heard and seen, on countless forums, blogs, and even in the media – the use of the word “fun” used incorrectly. It irks me.
I know that if you wanted to, you could really knit pick and find many errors on my blog – I know that I’m not perfect. However, to me, using English grammar correctly is just …. well, nicer.
Yes, I’m well aware of the saying ‘People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.’ I do not claim to be a grammar expert, by any means. It just bothers me when I see or hear lazy grammar or word usage being tossed around with a disregard for the language.
When I hear someone say “His blog was really fun!” – I cringe.
I found a helpful diagram on WoodwardEnglish.com
