    When it comes to me

    Can we use 'When it comes to me' when we are giving our own opinion? As in:

    When it comes to me, I'm against the plan/idea/decision.

    Thank you in advance.

    It looks acceptable. I have got nothing against its use as a way of expressing one's opinion orally. But I would avoid it in formal writing.

    It's not a natural way to express your intended meaning.

    As for me, I think...
    In my opinion, ...
    Or simply: I think...
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    *** NOT A TEACHER ***


    How about, "as far as I'm concerned"?
