Formatted Contents Note:
The birth of the BuzzFeed style guide -- Language is alive -- Getting things right: the stuff that matters -- How to not be a jerk: writing about sensitive topics -- Getting things as right as you can: the stuff that kinda-sorta matters -- How social media has changed the game -- "Real" words and language trends to embrace -- How the internet has changed punctuation forever -- From sea to shining sea: regional stylistic differences -- At the intersection of e-laughing and e-crying -- Email, more like evilmail, amirite? -- We're all going to be okay.
Summary, etc.:
As language evolves faster than ever before, what is the future of "correct" writing? Favilla was tasked with creating a style guide for BuzzFeed, and opted for spelling, grammar, and punctuation guidelines that would reflect not only the site's lighthearted tone, but also how readers actually use language IRL. Now she makes a case for breaking the rules laid out by Strunk and White: she offers a world with more room for writing that's clear, timely, pleasurable, and politically aware.-- Adapted from dust jacket.
