Post disclaimer

I use Grammarly’s plagiarism checker because it saves time (and face) trying to fix what could have been fixed in the first place! 

Oh yeah!

I won’t forget how many countless nights my poor husband had to sit up, working on academic papers, trying to aptly credit portions of his technical paper. And how several revisions down the line, the paper would get that stellar grade because his professor agreed the citations were done to his satisfaction.


If only we  had known about Grammarly back then!


But here’s the neat thing. Grammarly doesn’t work as your eyes just for academic proof-reading but also for creative and casual writing, as well.

This automated online proofreader finds and explains grammar, spelling, and punctuation mistakes in all types of writing.


And God only knows how helpful that is when you’re trying to meet a writing deadline, have to pack a child’s lunch for school and make it out of the door in ten minutes. Having an extra set of eyes that can point out typos, grammatical errors in less than two minutes, definitely helps…

Grammar peeves


Truth be told; we all need any help we can get!

  1. As a teacher, I found this post awesome and hilarious! Thanks!! Great thing to use. 🙂

  2. I catch people doing the your/you’re mistake all the time! Of course, I’ve done it here and there, but I’m pretty good at catching that one.

  3. You’re / Your is one of my pet peeves. I just don’t get how it is so hard to know the difference.

  4. I admit my grammar is horrible! Is this a plugin for WP or what is it exactly – it sounds like it could come to my rescue!

  5. I love Grammarly! I have the plugin for Firefox and it keeps me in check when writing my blog posts.

  6. Grammarly sounds very helpful! Sometimes if I have been writing for a while, I make simple mistakes with grammar.

  7. I sooo need this; English is my second language and since I thought myself I always doubt myself, too and love to have someone check it for me..thanks for sharing, this will be on my PC soon, too

  8. This sounds like a great tool to have in your arsenal if you have kids in school, or if you do much writing at all!

  9. This is a great tool. It can be hard to proofread your own writing and catch all the errors.

  10. this could also be used as ideas for shirts and mugs for grammar snobs like my friend j is. i do need to send the link to my nieces who are in college. they’ll love it!
