Grammar is Everything

Mercados Connieby Connie Mercado

We’ve all been to school and learned grammar.  From this learning experience, some of us take pride in the way we write.  Some … could use a little extra help.

When I began working for Curley & Pynn, I realized just how important grammar is.  And 13 years later I still feel the same way.  People do not take pride in their writing anymore and social media is no exception.  I cringe when I see misspelled words or misuse of a common word that was taught in elementary school.  Grammerly has a great page on Facebook that posts funny, but helpful, ways to teach/remind people how to properly write, post or express what they are trying to say.

Even punctuation and phrases are a problem.  I often wonder why people don’t take the time to learn the correct usage.

I’ve learned a lot from working at C&P.  My job consists of a variety of things, but proofreading is a main requirement.  On a daily basis, I can be tasked to proofread news releases, letters and magazines to name a few.  But it doesn’t stop there.  I take that proofreading skill into my personal life.  I wish more people could have that same learning experience.

I have definitely made my mistakes, but the good thing about mistakes is we learn from them.  I’m thankful for my learning experience as it continues to grow.
