Learn how Grammar Girl makes learning fun and reaches millions of word lovers through her podcast network, books, website, and games.
- I'm always looking for new ways to make learning fun. Because grammar is such an intimidating topic, I wanted Grammar Girl to be unintimidating. Grammar Girl here. You get a bonus show this week. Over the lifetime, the Grammar Girl podcast has been downloaded more than 50 million times. I knew I had a business I could build on and grow, so I quickly formed the Quick and Dirty Tips podcast network. When I saw an opportunity to play with game technology, that was really compelling.
Suddenly with crowd funding, you can get your fans to help you get that seed money to make your game. I'll hear from teachers and parents who say I have this kid who was really struggling with grammar. And after just a couple hours with Grammar Pod, he said he suddenly gets it. He's picking out the nouns and the verbs, and that's just incredibly rewarding knowing that I help people. Through everything, that makes it worth it.
