When you spend your life writing content for both this site and sister site ELLEfluence it’s important to ensure that you are consistent and coherent as well as eliminating as many spelling and grammar errors as possible.
I’ve said it time and time again in our dedicated Facebook Group (which you should join) where our collection of sassy blog and business owners meet up to discuss tips and help each other out, that my most recommended tool for pre-publication of any content is Grammarly.
You may have seen Grammarly before, if you’ve used it you’ll have never looked back. If not, then let me introduce it to you. I stumbled upon Grammarly after watching an advert on a YouTube video. Intrigued I headed to their site and created my FREE account. As I typed my post into the site I was instantly impressed that not only did the spelling errors show up, it also helped me to further correct my sentence structure to improve it.
Another great feature is the real time checking and the word count counter found at the bottom of the Grammarly site. Already written a document? Simply upload it and Grammarly will check it for you in a more thorough manner than any other spelling and grammar checking application or software.
Grammarly also offers a ‘clip-on’ meaning, anything that you type in your internet browser is spell-checked as you go. Proofreading your post prior to you pressing send. The benefits with Grammarly, in which I have personally discovered include a more eloquent writing style. As Grammarly corrects your sentence structure it is not just a simple tool. It has far greater benefits than that. This smart installation also helps educate you on writing professionally too.
