I'm glad to see the change made official. I rarely come across "Web site" any more, and "website" is easier to type. Although I won't go so far as to type "reco" or even "thru", I still like some words better when they're streamlined (email vs. e-mail).

Thank you for your great blog - I'm enjoying catching up on old posts and have already found tips I'm using every day!

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).
