For Fun

It’s Friday. And I’m out of useful writerly website ideas. So instead, today I’m just going to link to some of my favorite semi-writerly blogs. For fun.
  • Hate signs with quotation marks that don’t belong? In for a good laugh? Then you should check out The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks.

  • I never noticed this until I found the lowercase L blog. But since, I keep stumbling across signs all in caps except for that one L.

  • Not only is there a blog devoted to the overuse of quotation marks. There’s also a blog devoted to the misuse of apostrophes and it’s called Apostrophe Abuse.

  • I’m sad to see that Bad Parking has been abandoned. Well, at least you can still peruse what was posted before it went away.
What other websites/blogs do you follow? Anything good I missed?

These blogs all sound pretty funny. I'm going to take a look at them. One of my favorite blogs is "Missed Periods and Other Grammar Scares." Do you know that one?

One of my pet hates is unnecessary exclamation marks! Thanks for visiting the blog.

Just a little fun for a Friday.

Is there one for exclamation marks? I missed it. There should be, though.

Liz said...

Whoops. Sorry about that. I thought I checked the html so carefully. (It's fixed now.)

SlushPile Hell is quite entertaining.

I have a feeling that I am now going to see lowercase l's everywhere!
