Day after day I wade through a stack of Tweets and Facebook links that supposedly recommend ‘cool sites’ – hoping to find something mind blowing.
And, after endless pictures of LOL cats, top ten guides to ‘yawn’ and a whole lot of waffle, I discovered The Oatmeal.
If you haven’t seen it before, let me tell you, it’s genius.
Not only are there some ‘wee-your-pants-funny’ comics and blogs on here, its creator is rather good at explaining
tricky copywriting and grammar issues.
Here are some of my favourite copy type ones:
- When to use i.e. in a sentence.
- 10 words you need to stop misspelling.
- What it means when you say ‘literally’.
- How to use an apostrophe.
How I wish I was as clever and funny as this guy. Sob.
