Is it worth it to sign up for Grammarly?
What’s the difference between the free and Premium plans for Grammarly?
If you’ve ever written a blog post, you probably missed some stray commas and misspelled words when you were proofreading.
One of the quickest ways to get someone to stop reading your blog posts and move on to something else is to make grammatical mistakes in them.
You can proofread for an hour or have someone else do it for you, but the truth is that you are only human and will make even the silliest mistakes.
I’m not a native English speaker, so when I write anything in English, I pay extra attention to grammar and spelling. So when I found Grammarly, I decided right away to give it a try.
I started by using the free version, which, despite its limitations, was impressive.
This is how Grammarly has helped me – my experience
Grammarly is a full-featured, advanced spell and grammar checker that works with almost everything you write online.
Text editor fields in WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, and emails are activated by clicking the tool and a red line indicates a mistake.
For example, I’m typing this in WordPress, and as I type, red lines appear under parts of the text that seem to be wrong.
To find out what they are, I just move my mouse over them to see a description and a possible fix.
This can be done as you type or after you finish writing. You can find the Grammarly icon in WordPress’ text editor in the bottom right corner and click it to view all suggested corrections.
Grammarly can do more than just fix spelling mistakes. You also get a spell checker that works in context. This means that it finds words that are often mixed up, like there and they’re or which and witch.
Spell checkers don’t catch these mistakes because they are based on context.
Also, Grammarly checks for wordiness, incorrect modifiers and articles, passive voice, and other grammatical errors.
Vocabulary Enhancement is another cool feature. It suggests different words for words that are used a lot in an article.
Note that Grammarly only gives you suggestions, and it’s still up to you to decide if you want to make the change.

Conclusion: Is Grammarly worth it?
As writers and bloggers, we always try to make articles and blog posts that are close to perfect. But nobody can write “perfectly,” and we need all the help we can get.
Grammarly makes it easier to write by making corrections that are mostly right and helpful that we might have missed.
Grammarly is a helpful guide that can help you improve both your writing and proofreading skills. It shouldn’t, however, tell you how to write.
