Editing your blog

Editor

If you are anything like me, editing your blog post can be a daunting matter. You think it sounds great, but there are things that spell check cannot pick up. There are many techniques that can help with editing, from taking time after you write to having another person read your blog. I have tried them all. I have found that when time is of the essence, there are two free programs I count on.

Hemingway App

Hemingway makes your writing bold and clear. Put in text and see where you can simplify your text. You will see the Readability level along with highlighting sentences that may be hard to read. My favorite part is it shows you when you use the passive voice.

Grammarly

This is a great app that offers a free and premium version. I use the free version and find it is everything I need. It helps correct hundreds of complex writing errors. You can either paste in your text to their editor or you can download their extensions for Word or your browser. When you have the extension on your browser you can see what is wrong and change it on the Typepad Compose page.
