Think you're smarter than Grammarly?

If you've been on YouTube recently, chances are, you've seen a Grammarly ad. Even bigger chances are, you've dismissed it. I understand, it's the "too-happy, sing-song" voice that does it, it just makes you feel like it's going to be one of these things nobody needs. But that's where you're wrong.

Part of being a Virtual Assistant means having to write blog posts and perform research tasks, sometimes copying text from online news articles. I can't tell you how many times I've copied such text only to discover a multitude of errors despite being published on very popular online news outlets, blog sites, and well-known websites. It's hard to believe that even big companies and well-known brands can get it wrong, surely they use copywriters? Maybe they do, maybe they make mistakes, who knows.
