What thrills a blogger more than clicking the Publish button? Someone publishing for you on a bigger blog, as Grammar Girl Mignon Fogarty did for me recently when she posted my essay “Do Your Readers a Favor: Cut ‘It’ Out.”

Grammar Girl

This essay describes an easy fix to a devilishly common writing problem: unmindful use of the little word it. It—the essay, not the little word—will make you a stronger writer.

To hear Mignon read this piece, click the play icon in the upper-right corner of her web page.
