I am a terrible writer. Fortunately, Grammarly has been helping me become more proficient at something I used to loathe doing, proofreading.
I did very well in math and science, but just got by in my writing classes. It’s kind of funny since now I run a technology blog and need to write a heck of a lot more than I need to compute math equations.
One tool that has helped me immensely over the past month anywhere I type on the web is a little chrome extension by the name of Grammarly! Grammarly helps me prevent spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes on any site, program, or email while on Chrome. If you are not a Chrome user, this extension is the reason to switch!
Here is a breakdown of the feature set and a quick video showing you the power of Grammarly Lite!
