Whether you’re a blogger, a business professional, a student, or a Facebook enthusiast, you should be using Grammarly. It works anywhere on the web, right from your browser. Just sign-up and install the browser extension, and it will alert you to any grammatical errors as you type. Best of all, you can use it for free!
I know the difference between your/you’re, two/to/too, and they’re/their/there, but I’ve gotten a little rusty with more complex grammar over the years. Within minutes of registering, Grammarly caught an unnecessary comma in a compound predicate in a new blog post. It even provided an explanation so I could learn for future reference. Apparently, it was a recurring error for me!
Grammarly is key if you’re a blogger, particularly if a professional editor isn’t in your budget. Most readers won’t take you seriously or stick around if your posts have glaring errors.
Business professionals will appreciate it for emails, business documents, and more. Have you ever cringed after re-reading an email you already sent?
Students will especially benefit from the plagiarism detection in the premium version.
If none of those apply to you, then you’ll at least benefit by avoiding grammatical errors in Facebook posts and Craigslist ads. Whether you can’t keep sale and sell straight, or you confuse your and you’re, you will no longer worry that people are silently correcting your grammar.
I highly recommend signing up for at least the free version. You can’t lose!
