“Go Blog” or “Go Blogging”?

28 May

Once I saw a photograph on the Internet showing a group of teachers standing in front of a banner of a seminar (see image). What makes the photograph interesting is the wording in the banner. It writes, “Guru Go Blog!” (literally, “Teachers [Who Are] Go Blog”; FYI, Go Blog, if written as one word, would sound like a word that means “stupid” in Indonesian). Perhaps, the writer felt that the sentence was already grammatically correct, but, unfortunately, it is wrong.

Let us help the writer fix the mistake. In English grammar, the verb go is, among others, followed by a gerund, namely a word that ends with an -ing. For example:

Let’s go shopping this weekend!

I usually go rafting every month.

Therefore, it’s supposed to be go blogging, not go blog, or in a complete sentence, Dear SDIT Al Hikmah teachers and parents, let’s go blogging!

Hopefully, that was useful. See you in my next post!
