08 Jul 2009

Writing In “Possessives or Just Possessed“, I discussed the trouble I have with possessives and plurals and asked for reader input.  Be sure to read that if you missed it.  Today I want to work with plurals.  I think many of us simply use plural forms of words out of habit instead of really remembering what rules apply or how they apply.  So, this is just a refresher course on plurals from Basic English class.

Akismet takes care of most of the SPAM for WordPress users, but SPAM is not the only type of comment many bloggers do not want on their blogs. There are always dissatisfied visitors who feel they have the right to be abusive, call names and use offensive language which you may not want appearing on your blog. There are also users who tend to write highly off-topic and ...

5 Gmail Tricks Everyone Should Know

However, today Google announced that they were pulling the “beta” label off of Gmail and, honor of that occasion, I’m going to take another look at how Gmail can help bloggers and other power users, this time by listing 5 ...

Possessive or Just Possessed?

Possessive or Just Possessed?
06 Jul 2009

Writing I have to admit that possessive nouns, plurals and punctuation give me a lot of trouble.  I often look at things many times before I decide if it’s correct or not.  I’m probably wrong about it a lot.  In researching possessives, I’ve looked at several websites, college English textbooks, and high school English textbooks.  What I’ve found is that no two books or websites list the rules the same.  So, today I want to bring up ...
