Look, I don't know if you got the memo or not, but spaces go after periods.
... what? They do!
And they go after exclamation points, commas and question marks too, as well as any other punctuation you can think of.
Leaving out those spaces makes your sentences so, so ugly and it makes everything hard to read. You don't want your work to be hard to read, do you? Because I assure you that no one will read it in that case. Or if they do, they will then proceed to flame the hell out of you for wasting their time.

On another note, please don't put three-five spaces in between each word/sentence. This is a less common problem that I mostly see on things written by middle aged types. Please don't do it. Only use one space at a time.

Lol, I've read that the standard was two (2) spaces after a full stop/period. Like this.
