I have spent most of the day putting in a comma and the rest of the day taking it out. — Oscar Wilde
How can something so little make you feel so stupid?
It’s just a punctuation mark. It separates things.
I don’t seem to have a problem with the rules of the apostrophe, quotation mark and period.
My misuse of this powerful little symbol has been known to keep me from clicking the publish button. When I finally do, I can intuitively hear some of the grumbling out there. Have chosen to ignore it and embrace those of you that don’t grade my paper.
I bless the day of Twitter when the series of … (3) periods came into view. When in doubt…it’s a beautiful thing!
Working with copy editors, the last year, has given me a new appreciation for those brilliant souls that have absorbed the 21 (the number rule in grammar states that you should use numerals for numbers greater than nine.) punctuation rules of the comma.
I was somewhat surprised to see, in the second edit, that my punctuation wasn’t as bad as I thought. It gave me a warm feeling to know that my extensive knowledge of at least three of the rules of the comma would suffice and Word would find the rest.
So with that in mind, I have decided that instead of taking the time to memorize the remaining rules, I will try to commit to creating my documents in Word to take some of the pressure off.

What Matters Now is the work of more than 60 people with big ideas and something to say. It will inspire you to make some changes in and to keep doing work that matters.
The idea is simple: Each of us suggests one word — literally one word — that all of us should think about and then take one page to explain why and how that word matters. The result is an intriguing, inspiring, and at times downright moving collection of unconventional wisdom that is available free to everyone….Please download it!
Many of my clients worry about the number of fans, followers or subscribers they have…as an FYI…it doesn’t mean people aren’t paying attention…they just want to window shop most of the time…it’s all good.
Personally, I’m not going to stop trying to get people to connect, comment or share…when it’s time…it happens!
