10 Online Proofreading Tools To Become A Better Writer

Sharing is caring!

Blogging is all about content writing.

This is a profession where the world is your reader. People from any corner of the world can land on your blog and learn the tips.

So delivering the content in error-free English becomes more important, because you don't know who your reader is.

One small mistake in your content can make your reader feel bad about your blog and your writing style.

And most importantly Google is very much strict when we talk about the grammar of our content.

Google's bot are so smart to figure out the grammatical mistakes in your content easily, which will ultimately harm your blog's authority.

Being an Indian writer I can feel the pain.

Our mother tongue is not English, so neither we are good in speaking nor in writing.

We want to express our thoughts but because of the lack of poor vocabulary or poor speaking/writing skills we cannot convey our message.

So I felt like sharing some online proofreading tools with all of you.

These are the tools which are going to proofread your content automatically and show you the number of error in your content. These tools can be further used to proofread an ebook, press release or any type of text content very easily.

Let's see what are those tools for proofreading

#1. Grammarly

grammarly

This is the first tool came in my mind because personally I love this tool.

This smart tool is available as Chrome, Firefox and other browsers extension. Which means, it's going to keep eyes on you everywhere when you are writing anything in your browser.

You can write error-free content on Facebook, Tumblr, Blogspot blog, WordPress blog, Gmail, Hotmail or any type of online writing tool.

This will check your content for 250 most common grammatical mistake and suggest you to make the corrections.

You can grab this tool at free of cost as well try their premium membership for advanced features.

#2. Google Docs

Yeah.. You heard it right.

We can use Google docs for proofreading the articles. Google doc has inbuilt auto-correction feature which keeps checking mistakes when you write.

I am a big fan of Google docs, not only because of its proofreading capability but other awesome features which makes it a perfect tool for the business.

I always use Google docs for writing guest blog post for other blogs. By doing this, I not only make my content error-free but make other blog owners happy by showing them actual copy of my content without publishing on their blog.

Google docs will check small errors like spelling mistake, sentence mistake, formation error and other mistakes to make it human readable.

    I aware of most of the tools which you’ve listed here, will check the details of unknow proofreading tools. Previously, I used Spellchecker.net but now started to use “Polish My Writing”. I’m wondering that you’ve added Google Docs in this list.

      When I started, I was damn poor in writing English and I used to make many mistakes. Although the number has decreased but still I am making few of them.

      As I told, Google Docs is my favorite and I write all my guest posts there only. I recently started using Grammarly and it’s working perfect to find those silly mistakes.

      wowww, I never heard about that tool.. For sure I am going to try it and see if this works for me.
