Check out this letter of recommendation.
When you're posting on your blog, and you misspell something, or otherwise have some typo, I'm not going to come unglued on ya. I'll admit it, I'm a horrible speller. Scan this page, and I'm sure you'll find some spelling errors. But here's a teacher, sending a recommendation about one of his (obviously bright) students. Pronouns that don't match gender! Run on sentences. Sentences with no subject. Poorly worded sentences. Awful. A teacher!
I'm not just being a grammar Nazi, am I? Informal tone in your blog is one thing, but a business letter? I left a comment on the student's blog. I said "I correct that and hand it back to him!"
