The Oxford Comma- why is it such a big deal anyway? Comma's are just weird things those grammar obsessed people use, and nothing more. WRONG. They are very,very important! See? I just used one! I have a small comma addiction you could say. ;)
So what's the difference between the Oxford comma and what most citizens of the U.S. use? I'll refer you to this article by Grammarly. There's also a hilarious book called Eats, Shoots & Leaves which is about a panda bear who doesn't appreciate grammar and instead uses violence. The picture from Tumblr to the side is pretty much what happens if you don't use the Oxford comma.
One of the common arguements against the Oxford comma is that it's outdated and you could just re-arrange a sentence. I declare that rubbish! Why re-arrange a sentence when you can add in a comma? And how on earth would it be outdated? Is a question mark outdated? No! So why call the proper method using a comma outdated?\
And with that, dear reader, is what I leave you to ponder with. Have a lovely day! xoxo
