Singular, First Person Pronouns R Them

Thanks to Sean in Los Angeles for pointing out Eric Richardson’s new tool: Singularist.

Why, you ask? I was curious too. Here’s what Eric says:

I hate the editorial “we” on sites that claim to be “blogs”. I want to hear a writer’s voice, and I think the we sucks that right out of the content. It sounds pretentious. Get off your editorial high-horse and write like real people. Other local blogging sites — Metroblogging, for instance — seem to understand this.

Huh. So much for that haughty voice…
