Ten Basic Rules

Whatever: Writing Tips for Non-Writers Who Don't Want to Work at Writing

I stumbled across this today. One can fairly hear the smack as the author writes with face-slapping force about the rules that ought to govern daily writing. The rules are simple and common-sense enough, yet one sees them violated daily on message boards and blogs. People are used to forgiving bad writing on message boards -- except, perhaps, boards for writers where one might expect the participants to be able to write -- but since an unreadable blog by the very definition is not going to get read, bloggers may want to take note.

Sounds like Hip-Hop, Franjo. Strong beat, simple phrases. Interesting, but it would be easier to read if it weren't in all caps. Or maybe that's your special style?
