National Grammar Day

How well I could write if I were not here!

Did you know that today is National Grammar Day today? Me either!

The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar or SPOGG is for people appalled by bad grammar in public spaces. The blog calls out goofs by celebrities, politicians, marketers, and more. The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar is the founder of National Grammar Day. Ensure you look at their top ten common grammatical mistakes page.

On this site are listed blogs entirely devoted to grammar and the usage of the written language. There are some fantastic tips on every one.

They have even complied a list of songs which have been judged in the top 12 bad grammar stakes.

I know my grammar is not always the best – especially when I am busy blogging – the words just tumble out as they would if I were speaking to you. I have been thinking about attending a grammar or word structure workshop for a while, and now know that this is my prompt to go and seek one out.

Hows your grammar? Do you get stressed out about all the rules? I do!

  1. I usually delibrately try not to worry about grammar – or spelling – when writing, as I tend to get stuck if I do that. Instead I get the information down and then spend time sorting out all the typos and grammar mistakes. 🙂
