With titles like “8 Scrumptious Words to describe your Thanksgiving Dinner” and “The Top 9 Grammar Mistakes in Fifty Shades of Grey – and How to Fix Them,” Grammarly’s blog puts a new spin on promoting proper grammar usage.
Grammarly is an online grammar and spelling checker that helps users find and correct writing mistakes. It checks for more than
250 types of spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors, enhances vocabulary usage, and suggests citations.
Visually, the blog is very appealing. It has a very simple layout but one that offers a lot of content.
In addition to the latest, writing tips, it also features “trending” tips down the right hand side of the page.
As a writer, I am always looking for ways to improve my copy and Grammarly offers tips in a fun way with eye-catching headlines that make readers take notice.
A modest call to action is located in the middle of the page in the form of an invitation to sign up for weekly emails.
Yet, the blog is just one way Grammarly offers tips.
In addition to a website, Grammarly also has strong social media presence including Facebook and Twitter pages.
Recently, Grammarly hosted a “TweetUp” on Twitter to discuss the sometimes uncomfortable subject of correcting grammar mistakes made by others in places like social media or the workplace.
More than slap on the wrist, Grammarly puts a practical and fun spin on improving copy.
