I have referenced the Grammar Girl website in previous posts, but I wanted to devote a full post to this site as I think it is a great (and entertaining!) resource for reviewing grammar rules.

Its founder, Mignon Fogarty, is a former technical writer who created the Grammar Girl podcast in July 2007. She has since reached an enthusiastic audience through her website, Facebook page, and books. Here are links to some of her short, friendly tips:
