Making the most of your Messages


Have you ever wondered what somebody meant for you to get out of their message to you? If you're like me, that has happened a lot. And sometimes i've done this myself, and was left wondering if they thought you were trying to be rude when you really weren't. Well i have figured out how to prevent that by using your resources wisely to get your point across.


List of things that can go wrong & how to fix them

• spelling - spelling things wrong can make it look like another word.

Spoiler: show
Fix my simply by taking the few extra seconds to use spell check by right clicking on the word underlined in red dots and selecting suggested correctly spelled words from a list.


• punctuation - can completely reverse your sentence. read this:
Punctuation is powerful
Spoiler: show
It can't be that hard to add commas when needed, and a period and the end of your sentences.


• grammer - slang, easier to type but it can sound like you're joking around when you may not want to be, and if you use it wrong, you can make a fool out of yourself

Spoiler: show
Avoid using text talk that some people might not understand and slangish like those ain't not good ones that you don't wantin' to be usin'



Helpful Hints


Here are some ideas that will help you get people to understand the point you are trying to make with no problem.


• Use your smilies wisely
They can definitely help you want to be sarcastic and joke around? these guys will help you Using the right smilies really helps

• These things "*" . You can use them for just about anything. *wonders what those things are called* *sips glass of water*



how to use this stuff in a real conversation
(fake quotes)
Bob: *sighs* This year's fall fest was a real bummer < notice the good english, use of *s and smilies for extra effect.

Sally: Yeah, Ganz did a great job didn't they < Good english with commas and smilies to show the sarcasm. Without those, Bob might be confused thinking Sally actually liked it.

Bob: We can always look forward to next year's though, can't we? Maybe it will be better

^ once again, bob used his resources wisely



^ See how you can put these things to good use? ^

Good luck! I hope this was helpful
