"Enter" and/or "Return": the under-appreciated use of your right pinky.
Never did I imagine that the mundane lessons of my 7th Grade English teacher, Ms. B., would compel me to write a blog about the importance of basic prose structure. How foolish a 7th grader I was; not only did I have a weekly schedule for t-shirts cool enough to wear to middle school, but I also failed to recognize to beauty of the paragraph.
I admit, I am nogrammarian, but after weeks of reading OMC blogs to distract myself at work, I feel the need to promote the use of everyone's right pinky to press the "enter" key and create paragraphs.
I often find myself confused and frustrated while reading many of the wonderful OMC reader blogs. Whether its an article about a comedy show, magician or proper SCUBA technique, without breaking up the writing by creating paragraphs, my eyes tend to glaze over and getting back to work becomes appealing.
Please, nobody take this the wrong this the wrong way, but make your blogs a bit more reader-friendly. I would really hate miss the point you are trying to make. For example, just today I was reading a blog and I think I confused the discussion of "magic floating limos," dreamy dark-haired showmen and Jesus. Yikes!
At the least, hit "enter" every other time you hit "period." But, if you care to learn more about the paragraph, please start by checking out the link below.
