Hi, everyone! I want to share with you a service that is simply amazing. It’s called Grammarly. Grammarly is a “writing-enhancement platform” that can be used to proofread your documents, articles, blog posts, and much more! I’m sure you’re wondering why I’m talking about Grammarly on a Lifestyle & Beauty Blog. Here’s why. While Grammarly has nothing to do with beauty, it has everything to do with life. For example, if I knew of this service while still in college, my life would have been a lot easier 😛 So, I’m sharing Grammarly with all of you, college students and bloggers alike!
What is Grammarly?
As mentioned earlier, Grammarly is a digital proofreading platform that scans your documents, articles, school papers, blog posts, etc., for grammar and spelling errors, as well as check for plagiarized content.
You might be saying, “well, that’s the same thing I can do with Microsoft Word. What makes Grammarly so special?” Grammarly is like Microsoft Word on steroids. While Microsoft Word is great for checking simple grammar and spelling mistakes, Grammarly goes one step further of considering the context of the document, and even catching mistakes that Microsoft Word missed.
Check out the pics below of a paragraph I edited using Microsoft Word:
Easy right? If you didn’t know any better, you would think this paragraph is perfectly written and edited. Now, compare this same paragraph edited using Grammarly.
Not only did Grammary proofread & edit this same paragraph more thoroughly — noticing mistakes Microsoft Word completely missed — Grammarly went one step further to explain the errors, and offering suggestions on how to fix them. Dare I say Grammarly actually teaches you?
One of Grammarly‘s best features is its ability to ‘adapt’ to what you are writing; it can proofread and edit your work according to the context of your text!
If you look closely, you will see that as I changed the document type from ‘Casual Blog Post’ to ‘Academic Report’, my score went from a 10 to a 5. Grammarly proofread the document more critically, giving me a score of 100 once all errors were corrected.
Last, but certainly not least, Grammarly also provides an app allowing you to proofread and edit as you go. Literally, as I am typing this blog post, Grammarly is scanning for errors. Check out how I spelled the word ‘thoroughly’ wrong…Grammarly was quick to inform me that I should never enter into a spelling bee 😛 . These are just a few of the many great features Grammarly has to offer as a Premium Subscriber. I promise you, Grammarly will change your life (and your lifestyle) forever! Again, I wish I had known of this service while in college, but I am beyond glad that I can use this service now as a blogger 🙂
Here’s the part we’ve all been waiting for….drum roll, please. Thanks to Grammarly, I am able to provide one lucky reader a FREE one month Grammarly Subscription. This is an excellent opportunity for college students, fellow bloggers, or writers in general. I can not stress enough how valuable this service is — all you have to do is complete the entry form below!

Until Next Time,
