One of the hardest parts of writing and maintaining a blog can be remembering to proofread every blog post or social media update before hitting the publish button. But this just became a whole lot easier thanks to my favorite proofreading tool, Grammarly.
I have been a fan of Grammarly for quite some time now, if you are subscribed to the newsletter you will almost always see it as a favorite tool of the week. This is because it really has become a staple in my blogging process. I used to write blog posts and ask my husband to be the second set of eyes, but this wasn’t always convenient and sometimes blog posts would get published with some typos or other errors. I would always find them a day or so later and would be embarrassed and would quickly make the edits and pray no one else noticed.
When I first started using Grammarly I would copy and paste an entire post into the website and run the proofreading tool. With the latest upgrade to Grammarly, there is now an extension for use in Google Chrome. This is fantastic because it means that anywhere I choose to write online the editing tool will pop up. This includes writing directly in WordPress, Google Docs or even a Facebook status update.
This update has saved me about an hour a week just on editing blog posts. I am still a fan of batching, when it comes to my workflow with creating content for blog posts. But the use of quick editing with Grammarly and the Chrome extension has cut out one step in the process. As well as guarantees that every blog post will be proofread for critical errors such as spelling and grammar.
Grammarly and the Chrome extension are both free but Grammarly offers a premium service that is what I use. The premium subscription offers plagiarism detection, an additional 150+ points of grammar, vocabulary enhancement suggestions and much more.
I am more confident with what I publish now thanks the easy to use proofreading tool, Grammarly. I can take pride in everything that I publish knowing that I had a second set of “eyes” looking over my content.
If you have a favorite proofreading tool or method I would love to hear about it.
