I see my wife constantly cringe when she reads articles that I have written or parts of my book that I am working on. Simply put, I have never been good at grammar or punctuation. My mind just doesn't work that way. I hold much heavier weight on the creative side of the gene pool.
Why do I bring this up? Well for one, I wanted to make an excuse for any past or future mistakes you may find. But more importantly, I was wondering how necessary good grammar is to achieving success.
Of course, you never want to look unprofessional with errors throughout your writing, so you should always proof read at least once. Even so, mistakes are bounds to exist (at least in my case) and if seen by others could make you seem less credible.
I guess at the end of the day, the real answer is that I should just practice my punctuation and grammar and strive for perfect writing. However, now that I consider myself an entrepreneur, I would rather throw perfection out the window, make mistakes, and then learn how to turn them into gold! Don’t you agree?
Just as an aside, I made sure my wife proof read this before it went live.
One more thing, I have taken Blackberry in Bed to a whole new level, this article was BlackBerried (that word was not approved by my wife) on a bus.
