My Opinion Super-Sized!

I've put together a two volume collection of all my articles over the past 2 1/2 years. Every now and then I get requests for articles I've written and so that has inspired this collection. I'm offering both at a price that saves you 66%.

Branding and its principles are timeless, so all the tips and direction presented will be an enlightening read. All of the articles offer up practical tips and direction that will inspire you to strengthen your brand. There are over 100 articles across 2 volumes that are aimed specifically at entrepreneurs like you.

You spelt 'principles' incorrectly :-)

Also, 'savings' should not be plural and neither should 'comprehensives'. That sentence also doesn't make sense, it should read, "Between the two comprehensive volumes there are over 100 articles aimed... " or

"There are over 100 articles across 2 volumes that are aimed..."

Does your personal brand consist of the ability to make typos when you're trying to sell articles written by you?

My personal brand consists of the ability to not be perfect.

I purchased a grammar/spelling program recently, but sometimes in my haste I forget to run it. (depends how late in the day I post)

I never say that I'm a professional writer. I consider myself an opinionator. I am of value to my customers based on what I say, not how I say it.

I appreciate your criticism though, and if you've noticed, I've corrected my post. I've rephrased the 66% comment, but in another way. '...66% saving' just doesn't sound right to me.

In fairness to another of my personal values, I will never edit out your comments. I learn from each and every one of them. By the way are you the same 'Anonymous' who checks in here from time to time?

P.S. If any of the above has grammar errors - it is because Grammarian is not installed here yet due to a hard drive crash about a week ago :)

I've been here a few times before because I find your opinions interesting and yes, I understand that you are not a professional writer but an opinionator, as most bloggers are.

However, I simply don't find the excuse "I didn't have time to spell check" or "I don't have a grammar tool installed yet" a sufficient explanation for incorrect use of the english language as this also says something of your brand.

I wouldn't expect everyone to be perfect but I believe that attention to detail and a good level of communication is essential in any small business and it reflects poorly on one's brand if it is not read and re-read before being communicated to current of potential clients.

For example, If I were to engage a business in some level of work that requires a quote and I get an estimate of $100.00 rather than $1000.00, not only does it reflect negatively on a business but the client could then hold that business to it - a potential $900.00 mistake. No grammar tool or spell check tool would pick that.

I believe your blog and associated posts across the internet communicates your passion and willing to help others succeed which is great, but unless it's done correctly it may harm you more than help you.

Keep up the great work!
