60- Your brain cares. I've noticed kids writing school papers with this language. "Wow" and "ouch" are not sentences but should have a period or exclamation mark placed for their expressive manner. You can't start a sentence with "and." "Also," is a transitional phrase and you should have placed a comma. "not sure why I needed that??" is not a complete sentence. Where's the subject at the beginning? The use of a second question mark is unnecessary. Being a grammar nazi isn't a bad thing. We're supporting the art of written and oral language.
Sorry I'm not writing a essay. I'm on a blog speaking freely. I put the commas in those place because that's how I'm talking, I want you to read it how I'm saying it. I really don't give one shit if I forget a period. It's a blog! If you spend your time checking to see if you got everything right. You have to much time on your hands and need to get a life.
People copy edit and proof read as a career. You're not writing a paper, but you should always be using your knowledge to the best of your ability. That's the reason schools have a language/literature curriculum. They don't teach you these things expecting you to use it only when you're getting graded. You're wasting money and years of education. There is a difference between personal writing style and laziness.
