IYO TXTng = Gd 4 or NME of GMR?

Translation:  In your opinion, is texting good for or the enemy of grammar?  If you ask me, it's the enemy of grammar.  Using this type of writing in some environments can immediately label you as young, immature and uneducated. This isn't the image you want to portray in certain situations.  Would you use this style of writing on a job application?  In an essay for English?  Hopefully you answered no to both of these questions.  Tip of the Day:  Save the idks and other abbreviations for your cell phone and friends! 

As we begin to blog, treat your posts and comments as formal writing and don't forget to review the blogging guidelines!  Lastly, put some thought into your writing, even if it's just an email to your teacher.
