Oh look, something new over there under my photo

Posted December 30, 2008

Why, it's a link to Grammar Girl*, the new little site I put together to let everybody know that I'm available to hire for any writing or editing needs you may have.

This may not be the optimal place to advertise such services, since I seem to have attracted a following of grammar geeks who wouldn't need such assistance, but one never knows. Surely you wouldn't all be fascinated by the comma usage section in the AP Stylebook, nor would you necessarily purchase said Stylebook purely for your own edification.

(True story.)

(I'm even geekier than you thought, right? It's OK, you can say it.)

(I have not checked to see what the AP Stylebook says about multiple parenthetical asides.)

Anyway, feel free to check out what's there and let me know if you require the services of a huge written word geek for any sort of project.

*I opted against using Melissa's nickname for me, The Grammar Hammer, a decision that I stand behind 100%..

what a great idea. I may just take you up on the dating profiles or editing already written materials.

Funny story here: We were advertising for a position at my office and this woman walked in to drop off her resume. Only her resume clearly had a black line at the top from not being lined up on the copier properly!! And it was just a tick off center! And she handed THAT to me!! I let the higher ups know that I didn't think we should be hiring someone who hasn't mastered the rudimentary skills of running a copy machine!

Oh how The Grammar Hammer needs to be a t-shirt.

"The Grammar Hammer: pounding you into using proper punctuation since 1982."

(Have I mentioned that I often think in t-shirt slogans? It's a sickness. And the only cure is more (cowbell, or) t-shirt slogans.)

Brilliant idea, there are plenty of people out there who should really use your services. I might check back soon about cover letters as mine don't seem to be working very well...

Have you also thought about advertising at the college campuses near you? Or even somewhere on Facebook? I bet you'd get a lot of business through those.
