Sunday Review- Grammarly Product Review

* This post contains affiliate links, please check my disclosure.

Today we are shining the spotlight on a terrific tool for checking your grammar and proofreading your content: Grammarly of course!

If you are a blogger, author or do any kind of writing, you need this tool in your toolkit.

I have been with Grammarly for a few years now, I use the free version and it has served its purpose perfectly. If you write articles, blog posts or any other kind of content, you really need this fantastic tool.

Grammarly automatically checks for mistakes, corrects misspelled words and underlines potential grammatical errors so you don’t publish sub-par copy.

Grammarly sends you periodic updates!

For those who don’t have a handle on the English language or for those not necessarily paying attention in language class, this is the tool for you!

Here are a few of the ways Grammarly helps writers:

  • Identifies confused prepositions
  • Locates wordy sentences
  • Helps identify overuse of the passive voice

Some program’s built-in grammar checkers do not catch the same mistakes that Grammarly can. Do you know what a squinting modifier us? Grammarly does and tells you when not to use it.

You can start writing directly into Grammarly’s Microsoft Office just like any other document platform. (like Word) Or, if you use Word or want to write directly on a particular platform, Grammarly still checks your work and proofreads your copy. How cool is that?

Another useful feature is that Grammarly has a plagiarism checker, for those who do lot’s of research, that could come in handy. It also sends a monthly report on your use of the tool/app which keeps you on track with your writing goals.

The only downside is that it still won’t completely replace a human proofreader, however, for .02 cents a word, you can use its dashboard to send your work to a human to edit it. Still, it’s a whole lot better than having no extra set of eyes to double check your work for mistakes.

It even helped me correct this here review!

 

The bottom line is Grammarly is a great tool just like it is, but by upgrading to the premium version you will get 250 more checks which could find even more mistakes.

The paid version will also check for misplaced words and incorrect sentence structure. It will also give you contextual vocabulary enhancements to diversify your writing.

They offer discounts for some paid plans, you can see from the screenshot that paying for a whole year will save you big money in the long run…more than half the regular monthly price!

Click on any link and go check out Grammarly for yourself and see how error proof your writing can be.
