I think my period will be coming in the next few days. I suddenly seem to have a sudden knack of noticing things that should go unnoticed.
Not that grammar on blogs should go unnoticed.
I admit, I am not 100% grammatically correct all the time and my spelling is not always correct (I have a tendency to spell license with lisence, or is it the other way around?). And my writing leaves much to be desired. I am not in the league of those so-called "sikat" bloggers. And I am not claiming to be an expert on the English language.
But I do know that Filipino does not directly translate into English. Ang init ng aming pagmamahalan does not equal The hotness of our love. Sorry, I can't think of a better example, but there are tons out there in the blogging world!
I also know when the correct tenses are used. Present tense is for action that is happening presently, Past tense is for actions done in the past, Future tense is for action that will be done in the future. It does no good for your readers to use present tense for past tense or past tense for present tense. In short, nakaka-tense. Or is it nakaka-tensed?*
And what is up with writing as if you are sending an SMS? Ndi me na22wa pagnagbbsa me ng gani2. What's wrong with the keys in your keyboard? The whole alphabet is in there for your use. Use it and be kind to your readers.
Don't say, here's my blog addy, check it out. Before you ask anyone to check it out, ensure that you have checked it out. No use in inviting people to your blog and complaining that people are mocking you.
I REALLY hate it when people disable anonymous commenting in their blogs.
