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.

I think snark = snide + sarcasm, now. Dictionary says it was originally an animal created by Lewis Carroll. As if. ;0)

A designer friend of mine just got a request from a client to design a logo, saying, "Do me four or five mock-ups and if I like any of them, I'll pay you." See #5 above.

@milesaustin @DavidSirrine Miles, when you set yourself up as an expert, and a writer, and you deliver snarky, condescending posts, you better be ready for what comes. You call people "lazy" in this post, yet you didn't expend the energy either to check your writing or to have someone else do it. Bad writing diminishes your credibility as a professional, and sarcastic replies to blog comments (especially those which are correct) just add to the negative impression of the blogger. Living online requires a thicker skin. You should take your own advice to learn from others.
@PaulBiedermann Sometimes you simply have to "drill down the [insert department name] silo."

Both "cohort" and "didactic" make my neck stiff. I like "group" and "teaching" so much better.
@PegFitzpatrick Thanks... can always count on you for the real scoop!
