Blogging can be a lot of work, but Grammarly is a great resource to make a tough job a little bit easier. It can automate many common tasks for you, such as checking spelling and grammar, or even act as a plagiarism filter to determine if others are copying your material.

Honestly, I’m sitting here at the end of an 18 hour day. Between my day job at the bank, a long Scout meeting, and my regular blogger stuff, plus a couple of orders I had to complete for my Fiverr clients, I just don’t have time to do an extensive proofread and grammar check of every single word I type. I don’t yet have Grammarly, but I’m definitely going to look into it because it sounds dang handy to have!
It’s also handy for students, business professionals, and anyone who just wants to write better.
Here’s a quote directly from their site – “Essentially, Grammarly offers the same features as a thesaurus, a quality grammar checking program, and a plagiarism checker. While you can purchase each of these tools separately elsewhere, Grammarly combines them, which is actually quite nice.” Brandi Cross, Freelance Writer
I love this graphic – they actually had a contest on their Facebook page to determine which is the most annoying grammar error. Evidently, it is the misuse of your and you’re – ugh. One of my little pet peeves also.
I’m going to check into this for my own site. If I can get a subscription for it, I’ll come back and post an honest review of it and let you know if I like it or not.
