I feel that if your old enough to have a blog, your old enough to know the difference between words that sound the same but are spelt different. That is the only real irk I have with spelling, unless there are a lot of typos, then that kinda bugs me too.
I realize fingers tend to work faster then your brain sometimes, but there is always spell check and backspace keys.
Typos are okay. Everyone makes mistakes. But bad grammar, sometimes that gets me, mostly because it breaks my concentration and I have to think about what they are trying to say. But generally, I'll go back if I like the content.
