This week at Christ Community Church (CCC) I have been creating a simple Style Guide for the staff to use. Before this past week, I had never really heard of a style guide and did not realize all that goes into creating them. Style guides contain a lot rules on grammar, punctuation, spelling, and more all custom made toward each organization/company that has one. Every style guide is different from another. Chances are, no two style guides for two separate companies are alike. These style guides tell each person at a organization what is and is not ok to put into their writing or communications. The way one would write a phone number is defined. You either have, 706.555.5555, with periods or dashes, 706-555-5555. It is all up to preference of the organization and everyone has to follow that guide. It is really neat, but when creating one, you have to be careful to adjust it correctly for your organization. Before I put anything into the style guide, I have to run it by Al to make sure it is what the church wants because their writing is a reflection of them.
