I have always been insecure about my grammar. I failed high school English, twice. I loved writing, but hated the mechanics of it. In my blogging career, the “Grammar Police” would always stop by and leave comments such as, “YOURE GRAMMAR IS SO BAD. I CANT TAKE U SRSLY.” Or something along those lines.
As someone who learns from DOING, the app, Grammarly has been remarkably helpful. Since I started using Grammarly, it has helped me to understand my grammar mistakes. My most common mistakes were often ones like, “preposition at the end of a sentence” or “passive voice” so I can edit with a ‘second set of eyes.' The only problem was before; I would have to copy and paste my text into the app. It wasn't HARD to do, but it was an extra step that sometimes I would be too lazy to do. (I'm honest here… admitting to laziness! The horror!)
Since Grammarly launched their Chome plugin, my whole world online has changed. Now you no longer have to copy and paste into the app, the plugin corrects your text in WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, in-browser email. You can edit your text as you go or launch the app directly from your tab.
Grammarly has prevented me from making silly grammar mistakes in Twitter, Facebook, email, posts. Here's to looking more professional!
