This week, I am going to leave you with a reference to a site; namely: Major Comma Uses.
Some of us have the tendency to use commas excessively, whereas others among us hardly ever resort to them. While we have to keep in mind that the concept of poetic license does indeed exist, it does not give us a license to kill written English.
The site in question also offers a valuable insight into other language areas, such as “Parts of Speech”, “Sentence Structure” and “Usage”, and provides “Exercises”. Should you decide to review them, you could always come back to see if my text here follows the standard rules . . .

I am simply hülya. Life has given me several of the utmost valuable gifts: A daughter, a grandson and a granddaughter. Friends who are ready and willing to come to my rescue regardless of the level of despair I am in are also in plentitude. They are my cankardeşlerim, what we may call "soul sisters" in English. As for the post-birth acquisitions of some importance to some (or many) people, I fulfill professional functions as a Penn State Liberal Arts faculty; an incorrigible lifelong educator with endless enthusiasm to teach and learn; the Director of Inner Child Editing Services; a writer - poetry equals my life, after my child and grandchildren, of course. I am also a literary translator. When it comes to my worldview, I am a dedicated and devoted humanist.
