Blogging Punctuation Lesson

Here are 10 quick blogging punctuation tips from Ezine Articles.

  1. Spacing After Punctuation: One (1) space only is required after every punctuation mark (period, exclamation mark, question mark, colon, semicolon, commas, etc.), including bullets and numbers.
  2. Never use Excessive Punctuation!!!!! This will not create a greater sense of urgency or strong emotion, especially in formal writing.
  3. Periods and commas always go inside of quotation marks. Example: “I think you are great.”
  4. There is never a space before a period or before a comma.
  5. When doing this “…” you should use only 3 dots.
  6. When using dashes, use two in a row. Example: Punctuation–10 Rules
  7. Use no spaces on either side of a hyphen. Example: We need twenty-five boxes.
  8. Use a question mark only after a direct question. Example: Can I ask you a question?
  9. Use parentheses to enclose words or figures that clarify. Example: Use only one (1) space after a punctuation mark.
  10. If the last word in a sentence ends in a period, do not follow it with another period. Example: I know that C.E.O. He is my boss.
