Keep your writing concise with Grammarly


I’m a big fan of the Grammarly app.

As a blogger, I use it daily. Whether I’m writing in Gmail, Facebook, WordPress, or Twitter (on desktop and mobile) it’s always double-checking my work for proper punctuation, grammar, and sentence structure. The plugin also reminds me to get rid of unnecessary words.

Here’s a tip: You can try Grammarly’s proofreading online tool for free. Learn more

Most recently, Grammarly released its scanning technology for its premium users to work in Google Docs.  While it’s in beta, there are more features to come to match its powerful native editor. Check out Stacey Roshan’s tutorial below for more detail. 

If you’re considering upgrading to the Premium, I recommend going with the annual plan at $11.66/month.

Now that everyone’s back in school, I can’t recommend the Grammarly app enough for college and high school students who just returned to school. If you’re a parent, consider buying it for your kid. Just remember to use it for your own work too!

Download Grammarly, it’s FREE!

Download Grammarly to improve your writing

Attention writers, students, office workers — you should download Grammarly.

Whether you’re on your computer or tweeting from your mobile device, Grammarly ensures that your writing looks polished before you hit publish.

Grammarly is a free plugin for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari that proofreads your writing wherever you write on the web: in Gmail, Microsoft Office, Google Docs, WordPress, Facebook updates, Tweets, LinkedIn, etc.

Say you’re posting your latest status update on Facebook. With Grammarly installed, you’ll see instant grammar and spelling corrections in your sentences right after you type them. 

I always run my blog posts, novels, work emails, tweets, cover letters and resumes (Grammarly offers a resume setting for premium users) to ensure the most effective and mistake-free writing. 

My favorite Grammarly features

My favorite part of the app is the quick grammar check. Just when I think a piece is perfect, I run it through Grammarly only to find missed commas, slight misspellings and repeat words. Below is an example of how your piece of writing might look before and after scanning it through Grammarly.

Not only does Grammarly pinpoint errors my eyes overlook, it also explains why it is suggesting the edit by providing brief explanations for any errors in punctuation, subject-verb agreement, verb tenses, run-on sentences, and other mistakes to improve your prose.

The auto-suggest word replacement feature is also extremely helpful. As someone who tends to repeat the same words, Grammarly recommends using stronger, alternative but similar words to help me strengthen a sentence. 

If you upgrade to the premium version you get the full power of Grammarly. This includes advanced checks for punctuation, grammar, context, and sentence structure plus genre-specific writing style checks. It also comes with a plagiarism detector that checks more than 16 billion web pages to ensure your work is original!

Whether you’re a worker, student, or blogger, Grammarly meets all types of writing requirements. You can install the Grammarly app for free as an extension in Chrome, Safari, or Firefox, or on your iPhone or Android, for instant proofreading or wait to check your writing aftward with a click of a button.

There’s also a standalone native browser on Grammarly.com and a native Mac app for more focused writing.
