Grammarly- Helping Writers Succeed
I used Grammarly to grammar check this post, because even those with an English degree can admit grammar can be difficult.
As most of you reading this are fellow bloggers, you know how important it is to present your best side to the online world. Obviously, that includes the way that you write. You don't want your reviews to sound like an essay for an English class, per se, but you do want people to understand what you're saying, right? I've noticed mistakes in my own posts before and I do try and change what I can, but sometimes you just don't have a lot of time. It's nice to get help where you can.
Apart from blogging, I write in other areas of my life. For one, I just finished undergrad in English Literature and boy do you need a lot of help! I tried to have people look over as many of my papers as I could, because being in all those English classes doesn't mean I'm the expert. It's always harder to find mistakes in your own writing, I think. Would you agree? Now, I'll be starting grad school in a few weeks. I'm nervous, but getting any help I can is always a relief.
Finally, I love to write for fun. One of my lifetime goals is to be a published author. I haven't had as much time to write for my own sake lately, but I know when I do, I'll need grammar help. Even the most famous authors out there have editors after all. If you don't have a critique partner (and I am lucky to have one!), but even if you do, you want to take advantage of any help you can find.
What about you? What do you do to make sure your writing is the best it can be?
