I found a great new blog today

There I was, hanging out on a business networking forum giving someone some advice on becoming a journalist. This was a teenager who wants to write for a living - I and several others wrote some fairly lengthy replies to give her some idea of what she would be getting into. Someone posted a link to this blog, which I thought was an excellent read.

I had a look at the author's other entries and then their profile, which led me to their other blog... great site! It's always a joy to find other pedants like myself. The people that run this blog are utterly dedicated to hunting down embarrassing examples of crap grammar and piss-poor punctuation. It was a pity they couldn't spell standfirsts, though... :)
