How to Avoid Common Grammar Goofs

Sometimes you come across something so good that you wish you had thought of it yourself.

I just love 15 Grammar Goofs That Make You Look Sillyon Copyblogger, particularly the way writer Brian Clark and designer-illustrators at BlueGlass have put them together visually.  I advise anyone who has to occasionally write letters or presentations for business, or even in personal situations, to print out this list, hang it  above their computer screens, and look at it whenever there’s any doubt about what word or usage is needed in these common situations. You certainly don’t want to be the one looking silly, either.

f your writing needs more attention than merely avoiding the errors on this list, however,  it might be time to find an editor. Your words should always leave the right impression.
