    Hello Ozkon,

    "according to me is fine," but where you went wrong is the way you phrased your question. I believe it would have been correct to ask the question as follows: Is it correct to say, "according to me" ...... ........alternatively, the question could have been asked thusly: "according to me" this a valid way of saying what I want to say?.............or "according to me" this correct or incorrect?
    Me in the phrase above is an object of the preposition "to."

    We normally use it to distance opurselves from the opinion, so if you are distancing yourself from your own opinion, you are admitting that others may well see things differently.
