Help with grammar


not sure if this kinda stuff is allowed here(I didn't go through the rules)

but can you guys help me with this? I need one of you grammar nazis(hope that isn't offensive) to go through and tell me what is bad grammar in this (remember not all of us have been in highschool yet)
http://obviouslycrazy.blogspot.com/2...r-windows.html

I don't have MS Office to do the grammar checking for me
no this isn't homework, just something I wrote

It's a blog. I wouldn't stress over it. As long as it can be understood it's fine...

At a glance I see a couple of typos, so just read it carefully checking for that sort of thing. Reading aloud is a help.

Amosf is right. If the average visitor can decipher the intent without too much stress, you're doing better than a lot of bloggers out there

all your typing is left aligned
if you can, make it fully justified
( means it stretches to both sides )
it's generally easier to read

without proof-reading each word
it looked pretty good
