I have a monthly newsletter that I send out… it is a newsletter about JibberJobber. It’s actually kind of hard to write, for various reasons. I also blog daily and make comments on other people’s blogs. I am also towards the end of the first step in the book “I’m on LinkedIn – Now What??”
So I’m accutely aware of the quality of writing. Especially when I get called on it. Anything from typos to grammar to tone … I get called on it all. That’s why I enjoy seeing things from big rich companies where they make the same kind of mistakes I do. The first thing, in red, shows that they forgot to CHANGE one of the two. The second thing just shows that they thought about AND vs *and* … no biggie but I always find this interesting. At least I’m not the only one that wonders which would be better (hey, their solution is to use both :p
Writing is tough. I submit that it is a heck of a lot more fun when you don’t concern yourself with such nuances (like spelling or using the correct words, or proper things like that).
Can you dedup Karma? Now that would be a service worth 20% off of $49.95!
Jason, I hear you. While it is hard to write, a large company should be able to produce error free communications when they send out mass emails. Check out my article “Goldberg asks â€œShould CEOâ€™s Blog?â€ – I answer” for some pretty bad ones by Jobster.
