Kaylekd's blog for PR Writing

Archive for January 2010

I think I’m going to like this topic. From what I know about blogs, which is very little, is that they are a way to share your thoughts on certain subject matter. For the purpose of this class our topics will be chosen for us, which is a good thing, because honestly I wouldn’t know where to begin or which direction to go. But I will go out on a limb and say that commenting and feedback has to be a huge part. You can sit here all day long and write paragraph after paragraph about how you feel, but it won’t really do any good if you can’t share your thoughts with others. You may as well keep a secret diary.  Blogging is a way to see who agrees or disagrees or even people who agree to disagree. Comments can also inspire other blog posts.  I would imagine that gettting on your blog is close to logging on facebook to see if you have new notifications or inboxes. You want to see who has taken time out of their busy day to leave a special little note about how they feel. It seems to me that comments tie this whole “blogging” thing together. Comments?

So this is my first blog, and I really hope that I’m doing it correctly. After looking at the Grammar Girl website I was really impressed. It looked fun and up to date with todays generations needs for grammar needs. We all learned about commas and capitalization in grade school, but after a while how much of that do you really remember? I mean I just had to go back and change the spelling from grammer to grammar. It is great to have a resource like this that goes back over the basics and other frequently asked questions in the world of grammar. I liked how she had the basics of  “lay versus lie” and “who versus whom”. A style book helps, but sometimes it is far more beneficial to see other peoples examples with corrections. I also really liked the quirkiness of it. For example, the funny errors article. It was funny and comforting at the same time to know everyone messes up. But what I liked most about this website was how animated it was. It is so much easier to look at something when it’s not dry black and white wording with Times New Roman font. Other educational/ school help websites could definetly learn alot from grammar girl!
