Tell us what’s next

Welcome to 2022!

Seriously. That’s the year. It’s January 2022.

It’s been 20 years since “The Bachelor” debuted. “Star Wars” turns 45 this year; so does “Winnie the Pooh.” Next month, Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate 70 years of reign – the longest in the history of the British monarch.

Yet, most shocking of all: We’ve been doing this blog for three years.

It seems like only yesterday I was a wide-eyed youth of *mumbles age* with a hopeful heart and dream-filled head – visions of spreading writing wisdom throughout Compass Group sales dancing in my brain.

We’ve come a long way since that first lesson on the three most important questions to ask before starting a writing project. You’ve seen blogs on high-level concepts like client-focused writing and inclusive writing, as well as ones that dive deep into grammar pitfalls like apostrophes, exclamation points and modifiers.

So, what’s next?

The truth is, we’ve got plenty left in the tank. We want to help with crafting prospective emails, teach about semicolons, explain why your teen’s English teacher hates “to be” verbs and, generally, keep sharing ways to improve your writing. But, first, we want to take a page from our own book and ask the only question that matters:

What do YOU want us to blog about?

Much like an executive summary, this blog is only useful if it’s written with you and your needs in mind. So, heed the (26-year-old!) advice of the Spice Girls and tell me what you want – what you really, really want. Click here to send me an email with your ideas, and you might see them in an upcoming post.


Don’t be sad. We’ll be back on the first Monday next month with a new blog post. If you can’t wait that long – whether because you have a topic you’d love us to cover, a question or you simply want to throw your two cents into the pot – we love talkin’ shop, so drop us a line.

Know the Rules (to Break)

The English language is constantly evolving. Every year, new words and definitions are added to the dictionary to account for developing terminology and shifting meanings. We adjust based on our culture, and those changes affect grammar, too.
