The blogosphere is a close-knit community. You simply cannot survive on your own, so to speak. It is a unique environment where competition has minimal effect and content support has maximum impact. Netizens devour content and the demand for it is the very thing that sustains the blogosphere. This is where guest blogging comes in. Guest blogging is basically lending your content to another site; it will not hurt your blog or other people’s blog to have new and fresh articles posted from different sources. Don’t look at other bloggers as competition. Instead look at them as partners in providing more relevant content to your readers.

Between changes in educational laws, curriculum, technology, and coursework, it can be argued that grammar is becoming less and less important. Or rather, less taught. Between all the standardized tests that must bet met and growing sources of electronics, teachers (and their students) have little time to think about whether or not the Oxford is the only comma. After all, there are grants at stake and texts to be sent. Who has time to consider spelling and sentence structure when school years are lengthened along with requirements?
Somewhere in the past few years, English courses took a strict turn, where aspects such as cursive writing, sentence structure, and grammar saw a great trim down within public schools. Other aspects, such as texting – which is often done with improper spelling and numbers – auto-correct, and spell check also take away from proper English.
As for public signs, menus, and social media – it’s as though grammar never even existed. Apostrophes have gotten a serious promotion – they’re used twice as often as they should be, as are quotation marks, double and single, and ellipses – synonyms are often confused, and does no one read their posts out loud? It’s enough to make grammar enthusiasts scream.
It’s even been suggested that certain grammar rules should be ignored altogether. By everyone except the Brits.Read More
