What is Grammarly?

Besides being The World's Best Grammar Checker, it is a blogger's best friend! Let's say for those of us who went to school before the internet, Grammarly is a necessity. Grammarly is like having your sophomore English Teacher attached to your posts (texts, emails, and more) and no one knows. Grammarly makes sure everything you post is composed correctly and lacking grammatical errors. I have learned more about using a passive voice than I can convey!

Grammarly is a must for everything you write. Whether it's texts, social media descriptions, or blog posts, Grammarly lets you know what is wrong with a gentle red line and how best you can change it.

What do I love about it?

I love that I can zip through my post, while it's fresh in my brain, without having to slow down and correct my MANY errors. Once I complete each section of my content, I look for those underlined words and correct according to Grammarly's suggestions. This editing tool is even smart enough to tell me if I accidentally combined two words! I also love the word suggestion feature. For instance, it tells me if I am using an adjective too often and gives me suggestions to use in place of my original word. Our First (Unbelievable) Blog Traffic and Income Report

How did I find this editing tool?

Before we launched our Blog, we did a ton of research. I mean a ton. I read every blog post I could digest. I stayed up until the wee hours reading and listening to various bloggers explain the intricacies of the blogging world. I had lists coming out of the woodwork. However, one common thread among them all was to GET Grammarly! I narrowed my blog “must-have” list down, and it never crossed my mind to eliminate it. When everyone recommends the same thing, this girl perks up and listens. I've have maintained this attitude in all aspects of blogging, and it has gained us tremendous growth. I attribute our incredible traffic increase to the many tools I've utilized, including Grammarly. Enough words, Let me show you in pictures why Grammarly is an essential tool for your blog!

Examples: Facebook Post, Pinterest Description, Text Message, and more!

You can add it to your toolbar, and it works it's magic each time you write something!

It highlights your errors as you type!

Red signifies a critical error, and Yellow tells you that there is a better option, but it is not vital.

Once in the Grammarly mode, you are given options and suggestions for editing your post.
