Fogarty states, "Writing badly is like dressing in a lime skort and an orange plaid sweater—people notice." However, she does not point out such gaucheries with glee. Her voice is encouraging; her advice sage for pros, business folk, or basic bloggers. Mignon launched “Grammar Girl” as a podcast in 2006 to help people remember simple grammar rules. In her book, she moves beyond common grammar questions to Twittering how-to's (in 140 characters with proper punctuation) and the etiquette of email. Advice is delivered in a witty, gracious manner with the clever use of mnemonics that make the audio delivery especially effective. In closing, Fogarty invites listeners to a "grammar party at my place" with free weekly podcasts and an email newsletter.
