Stop Making The Biggest Grammar Mistake

Even the best writers and bloggers can make this grammar mistake. You may know the difference between there, their, and they're, but you're writing so quickly, you don't realize you just typed the wrong word for the whole world to see!

The English language is a tricky one! The most common grammar mistake is a homophone.

If it's been a while since you've been in an English class, you might not recall where exactly a comma goes either, or what about apostrophes?

I stumbled upon this awesome new app that everyone needs! Please, people, save the English language! This app is free to download! I have it on my Firefox browser and it is amazing!!! It even corrects my Facebook messages! Then, I installed it on my mac and it corrects anything I type!!! As a writer, it has been amazing to have my proofreading automatically done for me as I type! My editor will be so impressed!

So if you type anything, a Facebook post, a blog, a term paper, working on a book, a resume, you name it...you need to install this today!
