Thats good advice â€“ nothing puts me off more than bad grammar poor spelling â€“ it just reflects badly on the author. That said I canâ€™t spell myself

Thanks for this article, itâ€™s very useful for the people with a non-native english.
Haha…Pablo, that’s the point isn’t it? That’s why a vast majority of people hate taking English Composition courses…because in the end, you can only make grammar and punctuation study so much fun….
I use “The Elements of Grammar” and “The Elements of Style” as my two desktop guides for grammar & punctuation refreshers. Regardless, in the end, I leave the heavy editorial work, well…to my editor. But as a writer it is imperative that [we] learn to critique our own work just as we work to refine our copy content. It sure makes it easier to revise and polish a manuscript later!

Its a good thing my grammer and speling is good . Saves me wasting time reading this stuff.
Great! I was actually looking for a good English grammar book, but there were all either very basic or too boring. ;P
This is great! Every blogger should review this as bad grammar reflects on your blog, you and your company!
Perfect timing! I made sure I didn’t leave home without (both) my copy of the “Elements of Grammar” and the “Elements of Style”… no matter how much you write, you should ALWAYS take a moment to review the basics…

Bad grammar can scare away your readers. I for one have found that out very often. However, certain people will get used to you though so it isn’t all that big of a deal. I know my problem is that I seem to leave out words out a lot.
Good stuff, I’ll pass it along to my international clients who really struggle with this stuff.

@young, not sure how much sense this would make translate into Chinese 🙂 .
Maybe I should change it into Chinese, since English is not our first language.
