Spiffing y'all up, one typo at a time

About TGB

I’m an editor AND a writer, smart, sassy AND Southern, bold but not brazen. I love pretty things, good manners, baseball AND basketball.

Think of my blog, if you will, as quintessentially Southern and grammatically correct at the same time.

I am definitely not perfect. (Yeah, I just sent an email to 150+ people with the wrong use of “you’re.”) And I don’t edit the emails my friends send me. I am not a stickler or old-fashioned. I understand that language lives and evolves and I get the notion of artistic license. (Did ya see my logo?) But I know that if we don’t agree to the basics, then there’s just a mess. I ALSO know that “my’s” has never been a word, that “whom” still is a word and that “him and I” are not a good couple at all.

    I am so glad I stumbled across you on a broad search for Southernisms! Like you, I’m a Southerner who has an appreciation for the importance of basic grammar skills. I’m going to share you with all my friends!

    I’m so glad I stumbled across you during a search for “Southernisms.” Like you, I am a Southerner who has an appreciation for maintaining basic grammar skills. Just because we’re Southern and speak with a drawl, it doesn’t mean we’re uneducated or stupid! I’m going to share you with all my friends. 🙂
