Thanks for your blog. It is most interesting and very important to us, people who wants to speak and write well. Words are not for hurting, but to cherish. I have loved your “10 Things to Remember”, and never forget, about the use of commas. I try to do something similar at my work (LPM Communication - www.lpmcomunicação.pt), I also have a blog that pretends to give some tips about how to write and speak fine Portuguese. Unfortunately it is only in Portuguese, so even if I invite you and you readers to visit “me” there, it will be difficult for you to understand. Nevertheless, I have created a link to your blog, so my Portuguese readers can learn who to write English correctly.
Sorry for my English, I am sure this blog will help me a lot; I will be a daily attentive reader.

Why "Word Wise"?

  • When I started to e-mail out a weekly writing tip to my Chicago colleagues at Edelman in 2002, little did I know how quickly how many people outside my office would start to request it. But word spread, as word is wont to do, and in 2006 the e-mail evolved into this blog. The tips, which are about grammar, usage and style, have a dual purpose – to remind my colleagues in PR of the power of the written word and, more generally, to support and perpetuate clear, concise, creative, honest, lively, stylish, compelling writing everywhere. In 2009 I started to add commentary about and links to stories and other blog posts related to the media, marketing, writing and, sometimes, just interesting stuff. For some reason, I also started Twittering (at SantowDan).
