Grammarly ~ Checks for Wordiness, Spelling, Passive Voice, Plagiarism & More!

Have you heard of Grammarly? I haven’t have not, but I’m I am glad I found it. There is nothing worse than reading someone’s blog post and finding misspelled words, forgotten punctuation marks, wordiness and even plagiarism. You know you have heard that before, but you aren’t  are not sure where. I am writing this post in my normal voice. I have always been good in spelling and English class, but after checking a couple of my posts on Grammarly, I was in for a huge shock. So, what I am doing for this post, is showing you how Grammarly works.

When I am finished writing it, I will copy and paste it into my Grammarly account and show you exactly how many mistakes errors (overused word) and the corrections it suggests to replace replacing them with. But instead of replacing them, I will cross them out and show you the correct suggestion and when it calls for an insert, I will insert it in red. Doesn’t this sound like fun?

If you’re a blogger, have you ever wondered if some of the guest posts that you occasionally get are authentic or if they had been copied copied it (passive voice)? I do. And I know there are sites out there where you can check for plagiarism. But I also like to check the spelling and make sure everything flows good. You can do all that and more right in one spot…Grammarly. It saves time (which that bloggers don’t do not have a lot of) and makes make your life a heck of lot easier. At least it does for me.

And if you have copied something from somewhere else, you must give the proper credit. Grammarly has suggestions for that too.

And I came to find out that when I write, I have a tendency to write in my “passive voice“. ,” Who knew? I also didn’t did not know that you shouldn’t should not use contractions (Contractions establish an informal voice that is often inappropriate in academic writing.) because they aren’t are not proper and there shouldn’t should not be too much wordiness. Which I think sometimes we just add to make a story longer.
