A “PR News” article titled “6 Reasons Why Grammar Still Matters in the Digital Age” put “The In-House Writer” Andrew Hindes in the online hot seat when readers pounced on his own grammatical errors. It was a very simple lesson: if you are going to talk about grammar, be sure yours is correct.
If you choose to follow the link and read Hindes’ piece, be sure to read the comments that follow. His points were intended to deliver valuable advice … and likely to call attention to his services. Unfortunately, poor editing caused reader distraction and undermined the credibility of an important message.
Before posting to “Taking Aim” I always ask for editing. Just because you’re writing for a blog doesn’t mean you don’t need to check your grammar.
