Personally, when I started writing my blog I found that I didn’t really have a clue about SEO or how the whole system worked. Fortunately, a friend suggested I have a look at Yoast as it has a system to tell you how your writing will register with Google.

I just love having the reminders on my desktop when I’m writing. So between Grammarly and Yoast, I know that my writing is improving all the time and Google is going to notice me.

  1. As a writer, having Grammarly is like have a student companion as far as English grammar is concerned. It is an excellent way to write with confidence, knowing that you have a tool that communicates back to you what you’re missing, misplacing, or misspelling a word. It is a useful tool for any writer to have, even though I found the $29.95 pricy. Instead $10 -$12 would have been the ideal rate.

    I understand that the premium features include the following: 
    Assistance with proper grammar (highlights and illustrations)
    Advanced spelling options to correct the tone
    Expert advice on punctuation
    Keeping it Concise
    Advice on the Formality of your sentence
    A choice of vocabulary to be clear when presenting ideas.
    Plagiarism checking.

    Some of the features may not be necessary for a particular writer yet, the person pays for what is not being needed.

    But overall is a necessary tool for every writing work.

    1. It’s great that you are finding it such a great tool. Keep in mind that Grammarly often have special prices over the year. Sometimes even a 40% discount. Wishing you all the best on your learning journey. 

  2. Hello there Lily! It is quite impressive how well you write. Thanks for your honest review on Grammarly. I just started writing, just found out about Grammarly for the first time, It could be very useful for me to check spellings and grammar, to help improve writing flow. I am glad I saw this review!.

    1. Hi Roro, that is a very nice thing to say, thanks so much. Even though I have only ever written in English I still find it a challenge. Especially when I am writing quickly as an idea runs through my head. I’m always glad to know that Grammarly is watching over my shoulder in everything I write.

      Check out Yoast as well as this teaches you structure when you write and warns you what to change to get the best SEO. Hope this helps you to achieve your dreams. 

  3. With all the competition out there in the business world, a couple of grammar mistakes can make all the difference! I like the fact that Grammarly helps set the tone by keeping the sentences from being too long and confusing! The fact that it polishes the vocabulary is also good.  As you said, we all think we have our grammar down pat but, unfortunately, something as simple as regional differences can make a difference in what would be considered “proper grammar”!  Thanks for sharing this valuable tool!

    1. Hi Cynthia, you are so correct. English is my only language, yet there are so many official versions, US, UK, and of course Australian. We have our own special grammar, words, and spelling. Grammarly is a must for any writer.

    1. Hi Davis, I just love that we can use Grammarly for free for the basics and it is kind of fun having this helping hand icon on your page all the time to remind you of mistakes and tone. It’s like having a friend to help every day.
