Grammarly.com Review [Sponsored Post]


I use the plagiarism checker at Grammarly.com because the original is made of win and pwns all substitutes. ;-)

I was recently contacted by Grammarly.com's Nick Baron to check out their grammar checker program online. I really liked this program! I sent a short sample of my writing through and the program checked for:


  • Pronoun Agreement
  • Use of adjectives and adverbs
  • Confusing Modifiers
  • Verb Agreement
  • Verb Form Use
  • Commonly Confused Words
  • Spelling
  • Punctuation

and other misuses of articles.

I've only really used AutoCrit as an online editor in addition to my human editors and that worked really well to catch inconsistencies in my work. The price was a bit high as the longer text crits took from $47 to $100 but it seemed suited to creative text while Grammarly is more than ideal for non-fiction text and academic papers. You can get a monthly subscription for the heavy duty stuff (like papers and things) offline and as a macro for Word but for everyday mundane tasks like checking blog posts and such, you can download the free browser plugin.

Although nothing electronic can replace editing via human eyes (and reading aloud), Grammarly is a good backup to double check for a clean paper. Writers should definitely give this one a go and see how you like it! They have a free text editor on the site: http://www.grammarly.com/

If any of my writers out there try it, I'd like to know what you think!

Here are my results!

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?
