If you want to reach readers and gain a following, they must know you exist.

There are so many ways to build an online presence. Having an author blog is one of them. Sometimes, I’ll come across a blog post and love the great content, but cringe at the typos and errors. I’m guilty of this, too.

So, I put together a list of tools that helps me keep my blog posts error-free.

1) Titlecapitalization
Don’t know whether you should capitalize that word in a headline? You can input your title and it will automatically fix the headline for you.

2) Grammarly
I love Grammarly for blog posts, guest post, and emails. The basic version is free and Grammarly will not only check spelling and grammar, but it will suggest better words to use in a sentence.

3) After the Deadline
If you have a self-hosted site on WordPress you can use this awesome plugin called After the Deadline. It used spelling, style, and grammar in WordPress.
