Grammar Tips – When To Use Commas

by Amanda J Evans on September 30, 2009

Grammar Tips

Commas are the one thing that always confuses me.  Knowing exactly where to put them and where not to put them can be a little tricky.  Most comma situations are easy to use.  These include commas in numbers, after dates, and after geographical locations.  The tricky situations and errors arise out of the two main ways in which we use commas.  Today’s article will focus on these.

Commas Separate List Items

Commas are always used to separate items in a list.  These items can be real things, or places you go.  Below are some examples:

  • I need some bread, sugar, milk, and eggs from the shop today.
  • I have lipstick, eyeliner, mascara, and eye shadow in my handbag.
  • Yesterday I went to school, played soccer, went to the park, and then went home for my dinner.

European Freelance Writing Jobs

September is almost at an end. I still can’t believe that my children have been back at school for a month now and my leisure Summer days seem so far away now. As you may recall I took most of the Summer off so that I could spend the time with my children so September for me has been my first real month back writing for a living and it has been a busy one too. I am averaging around 2 full hours of writing work each day and then another hour each evening catching up on reading and of course researching for this blog. The European Freelance Writing Jobs are going really well but if you would like to see anything more please don’t hesitate to let me know by adding it to the comments section.

European Freelance Writing Jobs

It’s Monday again and that means another week of great European freelance writing jobs.  There are a number of jobs for today and hopefully this will continue all week.  When it comes to European Freelance Writing jobs the list is not huge and most mornings when I check certain websites there is nothing listed.  I have discovered that if I leave it till later in the afternoon though the jobs seem to arrive.  This is the reason why these jobs posts are so late in the evening.

Here are today’s jobs:

Reviewers, bloggers and editors

Freelance Market Report Writers, Healthcare Publishing, Home Based, attractive rates

10 of the Best English Grammar Websites

by Amanda J Evans on September 23, 2009

Grammar Tips

For this week’s grammar tips I want to share with you 10 of the best English Grammar websites out there.  These websites all refer to UK English grammar so they might not be 100% correct for US readers.  Grammar has such a broad spectrum of lessons that you can learn and these ten different websites are sure to have everything you could possibly need.  There are some really great grammar quizzes that you can take too.  Just goes to show that you don’t have to take a writing class from an online school to learn this stuff.  Grammar quizzes are a great way of assessing where you need to brush up your skills.  I hope you find these 10 websites as useful as I have.

Grammar Quiz – This website is packed full of great grammar stuff and once you have finished reading everything you can test your skills with their huge selection of grammar quizzes.

European Freelance Writing Jobs

Well it’s Monday already and time for another week of European freelance writing jobs here at The Hidden Writer.  I hope everyone is enjoying these leads and hopefully securing some work too.  I wanted to let everyone know that I myself applied for one of the European freelance writing jobs that I listed last week.  It was a job from the Dublin section of Craigslist and it was for a content writer.  I heard back from the company on Saturday saying that they have read some of my work and thought that I would be a good match for their company.  I am just waiting on a contract to come through and I will be startin work on a project to project basis for them.  If anyone else has any success stories I would love to hear them as I’m sure the other readers would too.

Today’s European freelance writing jobs list is a little better than yesterday’s I am happy to report.  You will find that there are one or two of these jobs that are from US sections of Craigslist but because they are looking for Spanish or French writers I have included in them in the European jobs.  Who better for these jobs than someone from Spain or France.

Did anyone check out the freelancer.co.uk website?  If anyone does register with this website and finds it a valuable source could you please come and post a comment here and let us know.  It would be greatly appreciated.

Now for today’s jobs.
