Come here kitty – I won’t hurt you!

I is a college gradduat3! Any my grammmer is really top natch!

I have always loved to write. Writing became easier after 10th-grade high school typing class. Note to Millenials: typing was performed on a machine called a typewriter that directly put letters and numbers on paper. For more information ask your parents.

The problem with writing, and then sharing it with others, is grammar. Grammar is knowing where to put the commas, correct spelling, dangling participles, split infinitives and much more.

Also the proper use of words like, “I should have gone to the store” rather than “I should have went to the store.”

There are automated spelling and grammar checkers built into the operating systems of computer software like Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s IOS. And, of course, word processing software comes with built-in checkers.

A new grammar checking software for iPhones, iPads and Mac’s is Grammarly. It is a keyboard add-in that checks spelling, grammar and even makes text suggestions as you merrily type along on your on-screen keyboard, or your attached keyboard (if you know the trick).

Grammarly is available in two versions – FREE (Seniors, the primary readers of this blog, always like FREE stuff) and paid. The paid version comes with more features.

The Grammarly app can also check an entire block of text and make suggestions for grammar, spelling and sentence structure.

Check Grammarly out in Apple’s app store:
