When I first started blogging, my husband told me about this really cool tool that was free. It was called Grammarly. By downloading it, it would scan everything I was writing all the time and check for spelling and grammar errors. Sounds good to me! I would consider myself a good writer but it always helps to have a second pair of “eyes” to double check everything. Since I do most of my writing at night after the kids have gone to bed, I tend to be tired.

Once I started joining blogging groups on Facebook I started hearing more and more about Grammarly. Apparently, this is what everyone is using in the blogging world. I am so grateful that I heard about it early because it has been a HUGE help!
I am currently just using the free version but I am considering switching to premium. Here are the differences between free and paid premium.
- Checking of: Grammar, spelling and punctuation errors
- Access for mobile and desktop devices
- MS Office Add-on
- GDPR and Privacy Shield compliant
- And more…
- All of the above plus…
- Checks for these issues: inconsistent writing style
- Unclear sentence structure
- Overused words
- Ineffective vocabulary
- And more!
