I used Grammarly to grammar check this post. Because even a blogger who has an English degree isn’t perfect. Seriously, in case you haven’t already heard me complain about grammar, let me make myself abundantly clear: I hate grammar.
I hated learning grammar as a kid.
I hate teaching grammar as a grown-up, homeschooling mom.
And I’m pretty sure my kids enjoy parsing and diagramming as little as I once did.
But here’s the rub. If you write, you need to know the basics of grammar. Now, I also believe that memorizing every grammar rule backwards and forwards will not automatically make someone write well. After all, most readers can’t tell a dangling participle from a split infinitve. What most folks want (teachers included) is the ability to write a well written paper, email, or proposal that isn’t full of mistakes.
Even if you’re one of those weirdos who actually enjoy circling nouns and underlining adverbs, you can probably use a little help now and again. That’s why I love Grammarly.
