@Emmalish @BeckyGaylord @Kim Phillips I'd like to think I was that kind. It's also useful to remember that he who owns the printing press--or blog--gets to decide what gets published. You wouldn't believe the things I was asked to "tell" the media when I was a young pup.

@BP @Kim Phillips I'm not an expert in Latin, only in buying, selling, and making creative work for over 30 years now. If @Aeli has similar qualifications, I'd consider the question a serious one.

@aeli Tell us about your qualifications as a creative professional, Aeli.
@Glen Iliffe @Kim Phillips People pay me handsomely for my experience, so, yes. If you want research, there are probably sites that provide that. I think if you'll notice, most of the posts on this website are written from the experiences of professionals in their fields. Move on.

@Glen Iliffe @JenniferSpencer The list is one of *tendencies* not laws. And they aren't necessarily positive or negative in every case. Most people have found the list entertaining and uplifting... one reader even emailed me to say it changed her life. I am entitled to write about my observations of creative types based on my experience of 30 years in buying, selling, and making creative work. If you want deep science, then perhaps there is another website you would enjoy more. Let's elevate this conversation all the way around, shall we?
@suslydic @Kim Phillips @AlfRehn @andersabrahamsson @suslyic You understand, exactly.

Excellent points about blogging, so long as we're talking about blogging as a profession in and of itself. There are plenty of other business reasons to have a blog that don't involve monetizing the blog. In my own case, I don't care about attracting millions or thousands or even hundreds of followers. I care about providing content that is relevant to my clients and soon-to-be clients. It works for retaining clients and for giving prospects a taste of what they can expect if they work with me. Blogging for blogging's sake is like putting out a newspaper that only has news about newspapers. Mine is at www.getlucid.net/blog

@Erin F. @Kim Phillips Good for him. Judging by a lot of the business writing I see, not every employer is doing that. ;0)

I don't stress about things like split infinitives; that one is really arcane anyway. But in general, the rules are there for clarity of THOUGHT. If I were still a manager of other people, and a job applicant couldn't be bothered to learn the basics of writing, I'd wonder what else s/he couldn't be bothered with.
