The Inaugural Weisblog

weisphoto1Writing has been a passion of mine ever since I heard the quote, “The pen is mightier than the sword.” The truth of this saying cannot be denied.

You want examples? The very foundation on which our country was built comes from the words of the Declaration of Independence. On the negative side, think about all the havoc that George Orwell’s novel 1984 caused the people of his day.

The words we choose on an everyday basis have an enormous impact upon the impression we leave with others, and it starts at an early age. For example, children quickly discover the art of “effective sentence structure” with their parents when they feel they must have a particular toy or candy item. From there, it just continues on throughout the rest of your life.

It just goes to show that you don’t have to be a championship-caliber orator to get your point across – you just have to know how to craft your sentences appropriately.

It’s this fascination with the language that’s caused me to start this blog. I’ll be updating it frequently with helpful hints that can make you a better communicator in your dealings with those around you. From time to time, I’ll also include entertaining trivia bits and ramblings about the other passions in my life.

Thank you again for visiting, and check back soon for the next Weisblog!
