I am not a perfect speller and grammar doesn't come naturally to me. Although, I give it my best by spelling words out, not using endless acronyms and I try to be a good example for my kids. There is ample space to write what you need to say... so why are so many people shortening words? Ex. 'tho' for though, 'y' for why, 'cuz' for because...
I understand that if you pay for a text message you are only allowed 160 characters, but this isn't a text.
I have a really hard time reading and understanding posts that aren't spelled out, or that have every word except 'i' capitalized.
I know there are young mothers, but why type like a teenager texts? I hope kids aren't reading this stuff, because they would get spelling confusion.
It is just something on my mind...
