We’ve all been to school and learned grammar. From this learning experience, some of us take pride in the way we write. Some … could use a little extra help.
When I began working for Curley & Pynn, I realized just how important grammar is. And 13 years later I still feel the same way. People do not take pride in their writing anymore and social media is no exception. I cringe when I see misspelled words or misuse of a common word that was taught in elementary school. Grammerly has a great page on Facebook that posts funny, but helpful, ways to teach/remind people how to properly write, post or express what they are trying to say.
Even punctuation and phrases are a problem. I often wonder why people don’t take the time to learn the correct usage.
I’ve learned a lot from working at C&P. My job consists of a variety of things, but proofreading is a main requirement. On a daily basis, I can be tasked to proofread news releases, letters and magazines to name a few. But it doesn’t stop there. I take that proofreading skill into my personal life. I wish more people could have that same learning experience.
I have definitely made my mistakes, but the good thing about mistakes is we learn from them. I’m thankful for my learning experience as it continues to grow.
