On his sassy blog, Dave X Robb explores topics as wildly diverse as pop music, grammar, gay sex, and grilled cheese, yet his growing collection of essays achieves a bizarre cohesiveness. He’s doing what we most love to see a blogger do well: tell his story through his own quirky combination of perspectives.
Here’s an example: Robb recently posted a witty little bit appropriately titled, Not much, how about you? in which he confessed, ” I decided to write about something that doesn’t matter at all” but instead managed to note a grammatical quirk in a set of song titles, offend a semi-famous pop star, and subsequently attract his personal best number of blog readers. That’s what I call a Sexy Grammarian.
And did I mention, he’s hot? And single? That he’s a massage therapist? Rocked NaNoWriMo last year? Always offers sexy trade pics in all his online profiles?
This week, in the name of all that is sexy and grammatically correct in the world, go taste a grilled-cheesy nibble of his thoughtful essays and silly ideas and tell him what you think by commenting, punching a like button, subscribing, or telling your friends on Facebook and Twitter about him. And thanks for celebrating Sexy Grammar Week with us!
What is Sexy Grammar?
It’s the fun way we present writing tools and grammar guidelines. But it’s also a philosophy—that writing and art satisfy a human urge to create, not unlike sex. Sexy Grammar is about letting your inner writer be sexy—aroused, engaged, and unapologetic. When you do that, your writing gets sexy, and that attracts readers. You can get Private Sexy Grammar Lessons here.
What is Sexy Grammar Week?
We conceived Sexy Grammar Week three years ago when we noted March 3rd as America’s Sexuality Day and March 4th as National Grammar Day. Then we established a flirtatious Sexy Grammar Week tradition: we crown honorary Sexy Grammarians and glorify them here on the blog. This year we’re targeting bloggers who really put out, like Dave X Robb.
