Third Person Pronouns

Third Person Pronouns
28 Dec 2009

Writing In this final article on pronouns I will be addressing pronouns used for third person. Pronouns take the place of nouns which means that third person pronouns do the same thing. They take the place of people, but these pronouns do not include first person or second person forms. Third person singular pronouns are: he, she, and it. These pronouns are used when the pronoun is the subject of the sentence. Example: He went to the store and never ...

Pronouns Are Fun Too

Pronouns Are Fun Too
21 Dec 2009

Writing Most of us already know how to use pronouns and don’t have any problems writing other than the occasional spelling mistake or the lack of creative words, but some people have a difficult time. Grammar is not very interesting, yes I understand that, but it is what I was hired to write about so bear with me and the dry lesson. I’ll try to spice it up with interesting examples. Last week I wrote about first person singular pronouns ...

Blogging and Me, or Is It I?

Blogging and Me, or Is It I?
14 Dec 2009

Writing Pronouns take the place of a noun. When we write our blogs we use pronouns all of the time, but do we use them correctly? Example: At seven years old I said, “Me and Mike want ice cream.” And my grandmother said (just like she did every time I made a grammatical error), “Mike and I.” I was taught that saying “Mike and I” was always correct while “Mike and me” was not. This is not always the case however. First person singular ...

You need to stay committed to your blog, which includes writing often and the site upkeep. However, being committed isn’t enough. You need to have goals.

Your Blog: The Holidays

Your Blog: The Holidays
23 Nov 2009

Blogging This time of year is sadly not pro-blogging because there are so many other things to do. You have to make food, eat a lot of food, buy too many things, worry about your credit card bill, fret over the in-laws that you hate (then worry about what to get those in-laws as a present, when you really just want to buy them a diet book), and so much more. All of this leads to less time to spend on your blog which can lead to self loathing and random ...

Appositives to Change Your Blog

Appositives to Change Your Blog
16 Nov 2009

Writing We write because we love it. We love the topic that we talk about, so much so in fact that we talk about it every week. Because of this fact, appositives are useful to understand so that you can successfully navigate them into your blog and express your true feelings about your topic. Without even realizing it, you’re probably already using appositives. An appositive renames the noun proceeding it or in some cases the noun directly after ...
