Thanks for pointing me to Where Have All the Commas Gone?. Jon! I even ventured out in my off-the-wall attempt at humor, and left a post.

writers groups
Jon,

I was wondering if writers groups accept people who write for blogs. The only writing I have to present isn't creative, it's just news posts from the past couple of months.

Re: writers groups
I suppose it depends on the group, but unless it's a genre-specific organization, I would think it's okay.
