Im not the best gifted at spelling or grammars and I did not do well at English in school and my handwriting well it makes Doctors writing look perfect so at the idea of writing blogs for my business websites i was hesitatant and to be honest to start with i either just wouldnt write or i would get someone to proofread it before i would publish so i ended up with so many posts and pages sitting in drafts not published just waiting for them to be betterer.
If that first paragraph has the grammar police on edge, please stay with me. That is simply the un-edited version of how I would write prior to this wonderful tool. I intentionally left it that way and there are underlines all over it.
This nifty piece of software has helped me so much with my spelling and writing. Prior to Grammarly, I would get my wife, an ex-school teacher, to proofread my posts when she had time.

There are apps for Windows MS Office and Chrome so you can check your writing in multiple areas. Built into the Grammarly website, there is also an editor where you can create documents so even if the apps don’t work with the program you use, you can write in Grammarly and Copy+Paste into your program.
When I would write a post, all my spelling and Grammar would be fixed but I would get to the end and there would be a number of Advanced Alerts so I knew the article could be better. After upgrading to the Premium version these errors were fixed.
Even if you think you are good at spelling and grammar, I would still recommend this app to help.
