Should you use American English rather than UK English?

    Should you use American English rather than UK English?

    I'm British, but I recognise that a lot of Hub Page readers are American. Will it affect how people rank your hubs if they see what they perceive to be misspellings, such as "recognise" in the previous sentence. I already changed the word "lift" in one piece of poetry to "elevator", which feels really odd for me. It seems to be a rock and hard place of what feels natural to UK English speakers and what a bigger share of the audience will prefer?

    I would say write what you are comfortable with. Alternatively, you can try check if HP's auto spelling checker affects on UK English?

    Good luck buddy!
