2 reasons why I blog and how Grammarly helped me

Seven years ago, I started blogging out of boredom from being a stay-at-home wife. I need diversion and also to polish my writing skills. I tend to interchange and misspell words, and I'm having a hard time deciding when is the right time to use punctuations. I'm a grammar mess, and that's not a good thing.

How can I convey my emotion into words if I can't even construct a proper sentence? The message I want to express may be taken differently. I need to do something to improve. Luckily, a dear friend of mine recommended Grammarly. I immediately tried their service, and I was blown away! (no exaggeration there) I found the perfect partner to help me improve my skills.

Let me share a few screenshots from my premium account*. After my Initial log-in, I was surprised to see how simple, straight forward, and basic the dashboard looks. As I mention here, I love Clean, uncluttered interface. It makes any task easy and stress-free. In other word, It's user-friendly.

My Grammarly is where my files are. It automatically labels the edited files and alerted me for the remaining errors.

Subscription can be paid quickly

I have the option to access the web-based application or I can download it, as an add-in to my Microsoft® Word™ and Outlook®.

I can create New Document by New, Paste (copy/cut) and Upload (document)

Let's look at my healthy breakfast post. I copy+paste, and it automatically review & detect the errors and plagiarism I committed.

here's the detailed report of my mistakes that I have the option to download if I want.

When I clicked the red & green highlights, the explanation popped-out. 

I have the option to ignore or click more for further explanations. 

It detects wordiness, and this is my favorite feature. It challenges me to change and improve my sentence.

Regarding the plagiarism, I don't copy text from any website. but, it detected similar & exact words used from another website and tag it as unoriginal text. Another brilliant feature if you ask me.

All-in-all, I enjoyed the service of Grammarly and I highly recommend. It did help me with my writing. I currently checking my old post for errors.

note: I was given a free Grammarly premium service in exchange for a review. Regardless, all opinions are 100% my own. This post contains affiliate links.
