Words to live by (& proper punctuation)


When two proper punctuation messages crossed my path last week, I thought someone might be trying to tell me something. Apparently, I need to be a bit more diligent about my efforts. I didn’t realize it could mean life or death for someone (above poster found on Pinterest via @LisaThiele of With Style & Grace) and had no idea the “two-spaces-after-a-period” rule had changed. According to this article that arrived in my email last week via LinkedIn, “The Rule Stands: One Space After a Period. Period.”

Now, if I could only have a daily reminder about whether the period goes inside or outside quotation marks… that rule never seems to stick for me.

Take care and have a great week!
