Proof That Grammar Pays

In sixth grade, I swore the worst job ever would involve grammar. In high school rhetoric, I sweated a really tough teacher and her deadlines. Of course, I grew up to become a professional writer. While I can’t say that writers make a lot of money, I did love this infographic from Grammarly via Ragan Communications.  Open up to see the entire graphic. Enjoy! 

Hi, Neighbors!

Thanks to all who have followed my fledgling blog on writing and sailing. I believe I have followed you back, but must admit, I’m a bit new at following, and I’m still not quite sure how to get comments working. Anyway, I’m really impressed by the variety of topics and the high quality of visual presentations. I must admit, one of the first things I look at is the name of the theme! Laurel

Hello to Blogging101!

Hello fellow bloggers! I recently started this blog about writing and sailing. You see, I live in Chicago and teach adaptive sailing. Alas, with such a short summer, I spend winters on my “real” job as a professional marketing writer. Some day, I will figure out how the two topics are related.
