Grammarly - To Me It Was A Hidden Gem - Maybe Not To You!

Last Update: July 18, 2021

One of the benefits of Site Content on the Wealthy Affiliate Platform was the spell and grammar check feature. When Jay showed how he now uses the Block Editor on the WordPress Dashboard exclusively to write his content, I gave it a try too.

I was right. Not having the WA Site Content's spellcheck and grammar correction benefits gave me a big feeling of unease. Grammarly. I kept hearing this term in various places, including from other members of WA. I decided to research Grammarly and found out it is available as a free version as well as Premium. And it could be downloaded for use on the browser you use.

Google Chrome


That's what I did. Google Chrome is my preferred browser so I downloaded it for that. It was like a breath of fresh air writing not only within the WordPress Block Editor but on any document I open through Google Chrome.

The three areas I find Grammarly most helpful are:

  1. Writing blog content on WordPress
  2. Writing anything within Wealthy Affiliate, including my blog here
  3. Writing emails

it also gives and asks me for feedback on how my article sounds to readers. Check out the response below:

There is a Premium version that goes even further in providing helpful suggestions for your article to sound even better.

My Recommendation

Download Grammarly into your browser and see for yourself what I am talking about. I like the approach it uses to indicate errors as well as how to correct them. It does this on the fly so you can make corrections as you write.

If you already use the free Grammarly version, please let me know what you think. Moreover, if you use the Premium version, would you recommend that to others?

All the best to you.

Hi Edwin,
I love Grammarly it saves a whole lot of time and frustration. As much as I like nearly all features and benefits of Wealthy Affiliate, the spell checker system is a little frustrating.

My typing and spelling are such that many errors occur on a short article. Thanks to Grammarly the correction time is quick and effective.

Thanks for sharing.

I consider Grammarly a very efficient tool. And I agree with you regarding the WA spell checker.

As I type here I am b being corrected in real time. I love that.

Cheers.

Hi Edwin - Grammarly is a gem. I tried the free version for over a year, and it is a handy tool. As a free subscriber for a considerable amount of time, I was offered the premium version for half price. I accepted the offer, and I am pleased I did. The free version is great, but it only scratches the surface. I only have one issue, which is too long to go into here. But I will give it an A instead of an A+.
I have only used it as an add-on to Word, but after reading your comments, I'm going to consider adding it to my browser, Firefox.

I am running all of my writing through Grammarly/Word now. Including this comment! I'm hooked

Don't write without it!

Hi Nathaniel,

Thanks for sharing. Eventually, I plan on buying the Premium version too. Aas I make errors typing, Grammarly is telling me what I need to correct. I highly recommend using it everywhere.

Cheers.

I'm so glad you love Grammarly! It's one of our merchants on ShareASale, so if appropriate, you can join their affiliate program.

I think the services that Grammarly performs are stellar! So needed by so many people on WA. It makes me crazy to see all the posts with misspelled words, especially in the headlines, or missing punctuation. There are sadly some members of WA that write so poorly that I just can't read their posts, and I worry that their readers share that same perspective, meaning they will never be successful affiliates.

Please, people, use Grammarly!

Also, love Grammarly, and it also works well with Safari. There was recently a special so I upgraded to Premium. Very good, but I am not sure I would pay the full price for it when it comes time to renew?

I’m using the free version so far and it is good enough for me at the moment. Glad to hear it works with Safari too.

Cheers.
