Today is our twentieth blog post in a row! I can’t believe we made it this far. Why did we think blogging from Thanksgiving until Christmas would be a good idea? Writing a blog post a day has been a time-consuming, stress-inducing process. The positive feedback we have received has been the only thing to keep us going. Well, the positive feedback, wine, and a few writing tools have kept us going.

The WordPress Mobile App makes it possible for us to blog on the go or whenever we have a spare moment. I have composed blog posts while on car rides and in waiting rooms. Grammarly, an online grammar checker, has also been a big help. Grammarly instantly identifies over 150 types of grammatical mistakes. There is the potential for a lot of typos when you are writing a post a day!

Monti introduced me to Grammarly when we first started blogging. At first, I kept forgetting to use it. I recently did the smart thing and added Grammarly to my browser. I wish I had not waited so long! Once you add it to your browser you don’t even have to think about it anymore. Grammarly is currently free to add to Chrome and Safari browsers and works with Facebook, Twitter, and Gmail. There is also a premium version of Grammarly that offers advanced grammar and spelling checks and context-optimized vocabulary suggestions.

You do not have to be a blogger or professional writer to benefit from Grammarly Premium. Have you ever sent a professional email and then realized you used a word in the wrong context? Grammarly Premium spots the incorrect use of words like there/their/they’re.  I think the upgrade is definitely worth the money for students and professionals.

I'm the crafty half of It's A Pretty Simple Life. I love a quick and easy DIY and live for a good home décor hack. I like to consider myself an amateur wine critic, but professional wine drinker; give me a bottle (or box) of Zinfandel and I'm a happy girl! There's a quote that I love that says "Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated". My goal with this blog is to embrace the simple, to focus on the small things that bring a little bit of beauty and joy to an otherwise overwhelming and chaotic life. I hope you stay tuned and come along for the journey! xo, keanna
