My "Not-A-Grammar-Snob" Friend Launches New Blog

Subscribers and visitors to this blog who also follow my blog  won't be surprised to know that I don't much believe in competition or proprietary attitudes. I think the universe is big enough for all and that we're all in it together. You may also be familiar with the name June Casagrande from prior posts. I love her books on grammar and she now has a grammar-ish blog. Here is the information she sent me on it:

Hi, friends.
Just a heads up to let you know that my grammar website, Grammar Underground, has launched at . It will feature podcasts and blog posts on the topics people ask me about most. Unlike other grammar-help sites, though, I’m approaching the topic from a perspective that’s neither prescriptivist nor descriptivist and instead focus on helping users blaze their own trail through these warring factions.
Podcasts and blog posts will be updated every Monday. (Yes, I take requests.) And “Snobservations” -- hilariously incorrect grammar rants--will be updated periodically (I welcome all submissions!).
Grammar Underground is on Twitter at @grammarunder ( and on facebook as Grammar Underground.

Thanks for listening and special thanks to Pearson Education for making this happen!

Yikes — I probably would have checked out the blog mentioned here if the short description of it didn't contain grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and formatting errors.
