How To Conquer Common Grammar, Punctuation, and Spelling Mistakes | Jean Alon Media



Grammar Gremlins vs. Content Creators: Slay the Punctuation Police and Write Like a Boss

We've all been there. You're crafting a brilliant blog post, your creative juices are flowing, and then... wham! The dreaded red squiggly line appears, highlighting a potential grammar faux pas. Suddenly, you're questioning your comma usage and wondering if that semicolon was a wise choice.

Fear not, fellow content creators! While proper grammar is essential for clear communication, a few stray gremlins won't derail your writing career. This post is here to help you conquer common grammar pitfalls and write with confidence.

Let's Debunk the Punctuation Police Myth:

There's a misconception that perfect grammar is the sole mark of good writing. While strong grammar is important, don't let the fear of a misplaced comma stifle your voice. Great writing is about clarity, engagement, and conveying your message effectively.

So, How Do We Slay the Grammar Gremlins?

  1. Know Your Nemesis: Familiarize yourself with the most common grammar mistakes that plague content creators. This could be comma splice confusion, subject-verb agreement issues, or the dreaded dangling modifier.

  2. Embrace Your Friendly Grammar Gremlin Checker: Most online writing platforms and word processors have built-in grammar checkers. Utilize them! They can catch basic errors and point you in the right direction. But remember, they're not foolproof. Double-check anything flagged, and don't be afraid to override suggestions if they sound off.

  3. Read Aloud, Be Bold: Sometimes, the best way to identify awkward phrasing or unclear sentences is to read your work aloud. This can help you spot areas that need improvement and ensure your writing flows naturally. Don't be afraid to experiment with sentence structure and voice.

  4. Befriend a Grammar Guru (But Don't Become One): There are fantastic resources available online and in libraries to help you brush up on grammar basics. However, avoid getting bogged down in the minutiae of every rule.

Remember: The goal is to write clearly and connect with your audience.

Here's the Superpower:

Confident, clear writing that engages your readers is far more powerful than a text riddled with anxiety over every comma. So, slay those grammar gremlins, hone your craft, and write like a boss!

Oh wow! The ‘Who’ is my family…they inspire me. Some people may say that there’s this one person that really touched their lives…[for me] its my family. My family inspires me to go to the next level. I love them with a Great Love and I want them all to be successful and I believe they need a role model to be that. And I’m pushing myself to be that way.
