Use Grammarly's plagiarism checker software, Mom always taught you not to steal.
I remember last year there was a big deal about copyright laws changing, although it didn't end up happening it got me thinking, do I unknowingly steal from others? Its very common, and actually necessary to do research before writing a school paper, but in the back of my head I always wondered if I was pulling too much from outside sources and not make enough of my own ideas. With Grammarly's plagiarism checker software though I don't have to worry about that anymore because it'll tell me. That isn't my favorite part about this cool new (to me) writing tool though.
Grammarly can also check your paper for grammatical errors, something that according to my best friend is something my blog posts need a lot of help with. So I decided to test it out on my How to Wear a Floral Bomber Jacket Guide. Even though its only a few days old Grammarly knew when I copied and pasted it into the bar (you can also upload a word document), that it was from somewhere else. And of course there were grammar errors. They check over 250 points of grammar, and give you back a detailed report of exactly what you did wrong and what needs to be changed, if only I had this tool in high school english class. Grammarly is really a great tool for teachers and professors, to catch teachers as well as for students and job seekers to edit out their mistakes. I'm not the only one who thinks this either because Grammarly has been feature in Time, the Wall Street Journal and many more, as well as being liked over 1 million times on Facebook. So go ahead and get your 7 day membership and see what all the fuss is about.
