Stylebites for the week of February 18
by Adam Kuban
Each week, I keep track of minor style points on Serious Eats and issue an end-of-week email to staff and contributors of things to watch out for. Call it a “post postmortem.” (Get it, “post” as in “blog post”? Groan.) I’m going to post them here on my personal blog for anyone (God help them) looking for copy-editing advice as it relates to blogging. After the jump, the most recent installment of Stylebites.
Spell out names of months. If citing an exact date with year, commas come after the date and the year (unless, of course, the date comes at the end of the sentence). Do not tack on an ordinal ending to the date (e.g., “st,” “nd,” “rd,” “th”).
