Grammarly Review - Proofread Online!

Grammarly Review - Proofread Online!
I admit, I’m not a perfect blogger and just because I’m a blogger that does not mean I’m a great writer. There are wrong grammars, wrong sentence construction and all on every post that I publish here on Bloggers Tech blog. But through blogging, I've been trying to find a way to improve my writing skills and of course at the same time be able to share what I want to share with everyone here.

So I found this website online that I totally got interested with because of how well it reports the mistakes of your essay. This is a proofread service actually, wherein you can just enter your essay to proofread and hit Grammarly REVIEW button and your essay will then be proofread.

I would say this is one of the tools that is very useful for me, and if you’re like me who has a weak writing skills, then you’ll find this tool to proofread online.  If you’re a student and keeps on having corrections on your essay or paper, then have this tool! Right now they offer a 7 days trial for everyone to grab!
Grammarly can check an article or any content for proofread, to give you the correct grammar, sentence construction, spelling and make sure your write up is unique. So today, we have a review for this useful tool not only for writers but for us bloggers as well.

THE USER INTERFACE

Below is the screenshot taken, and as you can see, the user interface of Gammarly is pretty simple and very friendly, my 10 years old niece can even make use of it and knows which and where to click to get the job done.

One of the problems though is that from to time it does not finish the job, so you have to refresh it. But no worries, Grammarly automatically save the content you wish to be checked every time you click on any of the button (except the trash and clear button).

Also the synonyms button might be useful for you too, it will suggest synonyms (obviously) to make your sentence much more better and your whole article to be unique - which will help you in avoiding the plagiarism issues.

Other areas that you'll find useful is the progress bar, wherein it gives you how much more work on this article needs to be checked and edited. The report or the errors can also be see on the left side where it gives you what types of errors they found on the article.

THE USE

Grammarly is not online a proofread service but also a plagiarism checker – great eh?

The usual button you’ll use will be most likely, the Grammarly REVIEW button and the check for PLAGIARISM button – the functions speaks for itself right? The other button that you might use frequently is the clear button, wherein it clears the content in the white board just below it. The white area is wherein you will paste the article or essay to be checked.

Another great feature of Grammarly is their General, Business, Academic, Technical, Creative and Casual type of reviewing your paper. Therefore, if you have an article that will be posted on your business blog, tech blog and other niche blog, it's no sweat for Grammarly!

Grammarly Proofread Service

Proofread with Grammarly - Worlds Most Accurate Grammar Checker
Grammarly can help you with having your write ups be reviewed, detecting and making corrections on grammar, spelling and sentence construction through having it proofread online. Though your Microsoft word already detects this, there are some other issues that Microsoft word couldn't detect, but Grammarly could.

Also, if you want an essay proofread service, Grammarly could totally do it. Comparing to Microsoft word, they could detect that you're using the terms "OUR, YOU, I" which is not allowed in an essay. They also suggest terms that is more proper to use for your paper which is totally awesome.

The downside is that, it does suggest for you to change the construction of your sentence, but it does not give you options and they'll take care of editing the construction. So you must read the message, see what's wrong and see if your message is still there.

Take a look at the screenshot below. They have a sample sentence with the same error that I have, and provide the correct construction of the sentence. So still, you must manually check and edit this, send it again and see if the error is now gone.

Grammarly Plagiarism Checker

As for their plagiarism checker, I have don't have any problems with it so far. What's great about it is that they only not tell you that it has a duplicate, but also gives you where you'll find the duplicate content. In this way, you're sure that your content is unique, and if there are any duplicates you can change it to make it unique.

Take a look at the screenshot below where I copied a content on my blog and have it check for plagiarism through Grammarly.

Grammarly Ratings

As part of this Grammarly review, my ratings for their service is 4 stars out of 5. This is because there are times that it lags and/or I need to resubmit my content for review, like if I want an essay proofread there are times that it gave me an error telling me that to resubmit again to be reviewed. But anyway, it is successful the next run but time is gold, so every submission or every click of the button should be 100% perfectly running proofread service.

Another is that, sometimes I don't know how to fix the issue. I'm puzzled on how to fix since they only give an example on how to fix the issue and NOT suggest a construction to fix it - like Microsoft word does.


Proofread Your Essays for Grammar Errors and Instances of Plagiarism.

But all in all, it's a great tool especially for a blogger and SEO specialists like me who aims to publish UNIQUE articles and contents all over the internet. This is also advisable for SEOs out there who spins content to build links to their website, I use Grammarly to get that 100% unique content and avoid plagiarism, also of course to have that readable and great content to be submitted for publishing. Please take note that the monthly subscription already includes the service where you'll be able to submit your content to check for plagiarism.

Though there's still space for improvement, I suggest to use tools like this if you want to improve your writing skills - especially for blogging. Since through this, you could assure yourself that your content is readable and AVOID the feeling of being ashamed of people or friends who'll be reading your content and see some errors, and of course Google penalizing you for duplicate content.

Also, for students who wish to have Essay proofread service, this might be a great tool for you. But I would suggest just to avail their service when you've got at least a portion of your essay to be reviewed - it would be great if you're already at least the half of your essay. Since this is monthly subscription, so you'll be paying monthly for this - but may stop anytime you want to stop.

I'm also one of the monthly subscribers of Grammarly and now, I'm also one of the affiliates. So yes, if you want to avail the service of Grammarly, then please do use the link below or click on the banners or just click on the button below to go their website.
