In my post, I show you how to use Grammarly in WordPress.
Grammarly is a writer’s assistant tool to check grammar and spelling errors in your blog content.
Before publishing blog posts, you should proofread your content. Grammarly helps you check your content.
Grammarly has free and paid options. The free option offers basic grammar and spelling suggestions.
Grammarly’s paid options offer advanced writing suggestions.
I use Grammarly (*Paid Link) on my WordPress website. I check blog posts for errors with Grammarly before I publish every article.
Let’s get started.
How To Use Grammarly
Grammarly is not part of WordPress. It is a browser extension that integrates with the WordPress editor.
Once Grammarly has access to the WordPress editor, it highlights errors and offers corrections within the editor.
You can upload documents for grammar and spell checks on your Grammarly account dashboard.
Step One – Install Grammarly
Go to Grammarly.com (*Paid Link), and click Get Grammarly.
You can install Grammarly on Chrome, Brave, Safari, Firefox, and Edge browsers.
Step Two – Create a Free Account
Create a free Grammarly account. Use an email address or continue with Facebook or Google.
Here is the Grammarly dashboard.
Use the Grammarly plugin to check your blog content as you write. Or upload a document to your Grammarly dashboard.
When I proofread my blog posts, I create a new document on my Grammarly dashboard and paste my content.
I correct errors found in my blog post from the document.
Step Three – Activate Grammarly
Click on the Grammarly icon on your browser, and click Log In.
Sign in to your account.
When signed in, return to your WordPress editor, and select the Grammarly icon.
Activate Grammarly for WordPress by sliding to the right.
Check the other settings to make Grammarly work efficiently for you.
Grammarly is integrated with the WordPress editor and makes correction suggestions as you type.

How To Proofread Blog Posts On Grammarly
You get more error suggestions when you open a document on your Grammarly dashboard.
To open a document, select New Document.
Copy your blog post content.
Then paste it into the document.
On the right, you get an overall score and other suggestions.
For this document, the overall score is 99/100. It has one error correction suggestion and eight premium suggestions.
Click on the alert to view details.
The Correctness alert tells me the content has a spelling error.
To accept the correction, click the suggestion.
To remove the error, click the delete icon.
Every time you correct an error in the document, make the same correction on your blog post.
Or complete all corrections and copy and paste.
When basic error suggestions are complete, you get premium error suggestions.
The premium suggestions don’t offer a correction.
From the list, it is possible to know how to correct the error.
Grammarly highlights an error in the opening paragraph.
I think changing this to To Check should clear this error.
