That’s not me in the picture. I promise.
Even though I haven’t had my own classroom for a number of years, I am still an English teacher at heart, and I miss it! So, while I hope this series will help some of you brush up your writing a little, it will also give me a chance to exercise my English muscles (which are getting as flabby as the rest of me!).
I am by no means an expert on blog writing, having only had Mad in Crafts up and running for about 16 months. Nor is MiC so outstanding that I have people clamoring for the secret to my success. But, I have learned so much from other great bloggers in the interwebs, I wanted to give something back. Since I do have a little experience and education in teaching language skills, I thought I would share. See, those 5 years of college really were worth it!
The series will cover a few areas important to blog writing; things like finding your voice, how to structure a post, common grammar buggers and the like. I am not going to deal with content, or how to grow your blog, or technological issues because I make all that stuff up as I go along (and that’s no help to anyone).
What I want to know from you is: What questions do you have about blog writing? Do you have problems writing introductions to a tutorial? Unsure about whether or not you need to credit someone else’s project? And do you really need a comma before the word “and” in a list of 3 things?
That’s right. I will do your English homework for you.
Bet you wish I was around back when you had to read Moby Dick, huh?
