  1. Great interview! I’m currently taking Margie’s online punctuation class, and it’s been quite helpful so far. As a proofreader, I also find myself searching on her blog quite often when I’m stuck on something. Her quick explanations on grammar and punctuation are a big help. Seeing her answer questions on the Facebook punctuation group is great, too. She’s even chimed in on a few of my posts. (Thanks Margie!) Can’t wait for BG/GP to come out in ebook format.

  2. Margie’s site is one of the few that I have bookmarked on my iPad. It is definitely one of my top go-to sources when I have a question while I am proofreading. The only question I have to ask myself is: do I get BG/GP now or wait for the ebook?!

  3. I love Margie’s blog. I subscribe to her site, and her emails are so helpful. It’s extremely useful but short. I am putting a lot of her info into spreadsheets to help me proofread better, and I cannot wait to get her new eBook!

  4. While I still reference Morson’s, I truly prefer BG/GP! Its organization makes sense to me, the explanations are clear, and Margie takes into account some of the changes in accepted usage that have occurred since Morson’s was last published.

    I can’t proofread on a computer screen, either, but have no trouble on an iPad. Maybe it’s because it’s held at about the same distance as a book. Being able to adjust font size, contrast, and lighting are huge helps for my eyes, as well. I’m sure it’s also what we’re comfortable with; even if they aren’t very portable, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to give up my hard copy reference books!

  5. Was this interview in September 2015? I see so many online articles that don’t have the date anywhere. Then, very briefly, I fondly remember “the good ole’ days” of traditional newspapers. This interview is still very relevant, but it is useful to know when content was originally posted.

  6. Does Mrs. Margie ever offer coupon codes for her books? If so, where would one find them?

    1. I don’t believe so, but you can always check out her website to be sure. 🙂
