My name is Tara, and I am a lousy editor

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of GrammarBase for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I first started this blog, there was a tag line underneath the heading that said "Where poor photography and bad grammar connect".  I am hoping to correct both of those problems.  First of all, I signed up for a photography class.  Secondly, I am going to start using Soon this blog will look so good, you won't recognize it. is a brand new web tool that was developed to help us all become better writers.  It identifies and helps users correct problems with punctuation, grammar, spelling, style and even plagiarism.  It was specifically developed to help professional writers, non-native English speakers and those with dyslexia write flawlessly.  I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to deal with dyslexia and it is wonderful that there is not a tool to help them overcome some of their frustrations with writing.

I can't wait to have my kids start using it. Unlike most spell checks, will alert you if you've used "they're" instead of "their" or "there".  Simple spell checks just can't catch errors like that.

Despite the mounting evidence of grammatical evidence on this blog, I really do proofread each post several times before I publish it.  The problem is that my brain already knows what I am trying to say and so automatically corrects all my errors. 

So what would you pay for a fast and easy tool to help improve your writing?  How about 0$?  Seriously!

Check out and let me know what you think.
