When I saw this post on Ragan.com by Eileen Burmeister, I had to take a deep breath before I considered sharing what it said. Maybe everybody is still commiserating about Christina Aguilera botching the National Anthem and it’ll go unnoticed, I thought.
Could it be? No more liberally clicking the space bar twice after each period? I’ve inserted more red number signs over the years than I care to admit and now, just like that, I may have to play by the rules and go single space.
Truth be told, we follow AP Style guidelines, but we also agree that two spaces after a period just looks better. So, before I toss the red pen and tighten up the space bar usage, let me hear from you: one space or two?
P.S. – I think this is what Peter Cetera was really singing about.
