  1. Hi Briana, I hope this email finds you well.

    I want to say that I truly admire your work, content, and creativity to engage with readers.

    My name is Claudia Portillo, and I am the Executive Editor for Healthy Magazine in Miami and South Texas. A free health and positive- lifestyle publication.

    I am wondering if there is any way we can share your content on our online and print publication. We really think you are very talented and I absolutely believe that your articles can benefit our readers and the community.

    As for compensation, our writers have the opportunity to get cross-media advertising since we will promote your name in all our venues, print and online. We will also do a short bio at the bottom of the article, that way you can increase your own readership.

    Thank you so much for your time! I hope I can hear from you soon. 🙂

  2. Briana:
    Thank you for your educational articles on the use of phrases and the intent of
    their meaning.
    I have a concern about the prolific use of “YOU KNOW” by commentators on CNN
    and MSNBC. It seems there is a virus affecting female commentators who insert
    this filler into most sentences as they discuss opinions with other commentators.
    This virus is now infecting all, both male and female staff.
    This seems to indicate a need to unite uniformity of thought with the group. WOW!
    I believe, “YOU KNOW”, we are headed in the wrong direction with this common
    mistake in communication, that can have a group think implication moving forward.
    Thank you for listening to my individual thought process. F. Judy Brown

  3. “Self-depreciating” versus “Self-deprecating”

    …you had an article in about expression which would sound unprofessional…
    I agree that using the term self-depreciating may well risk sounding unprofessional; but, only due to the fact that it very uncommon to use it this way, not because it is incorrect.

    Depreciation has two meanings: yes, the first which you state about economic value, but also the second in which it does indeed mean the exact same as deprecate.

    1. …
    2. to disparage or belittle”

  4. …same article – work and money – since you seem to care about use of the English language I bring this up as well…
    You make the all-too-common mistake, even amongst native English speakers, of beginning sentences with the word ‘but’. I see it all the time (not just in English), and also with word ‘and’. These words are conjunctions. By definition, they should never be used to begin a new sentence (with the exception of very, very occasional intention use in special circumstances to give special effect).

    It is poor use of the English language. I write this just in the interest of reminding you, and raising the awareness of other non native speakers, to raise the standard of English.
