But it is not true, if your articles have mistakes like spelling, grammar error then it will leave a bad impression on the visitors and raise questions about the credibility and professionalism.

What I use to write Article with no Spelling or Grammar Error
I know that I am not 100% correct when it comes to grammar, but I started two services recently on my Blog which has helped me a lot in recognizing the errors and correcting them. If you are running the Blog on WordPress then there is a plugin ‘After the Deadline’ which allows you to check for spelling and grammar errors in the post writing area. You can download the plugin from here. After downloading the plugin activate the plugin to use. To use the plugin it is very simple, when you have completed the writing part of the article just click on the button ‘ABC’. See the screenshot below for clarity.
In the beginning I use only ‘After the Deadline’ plugin, although it is very useful but some grammatical error is still there and the plugin is explaining me the error but there is no automatic solution available. Then I found another tool which is a software and browser extension which shows the error and the correction also. You just have to click on the correction to replace the wrong part of the article. This extension is available for most of the browsers and known as ‘Ginger’. You can get the software to correct the English for word docs and browser extension to correct for online docs from here. Using this service has helped me a lot in making the article more error free. Using this plugin is even simpler than the earlier methods. Once the extension is installed on your browser, you can start seeing the errors and the correction in the text area whether you are writing in WordPress, Blogger, any CMS or even drafting an email. Parts with errors are highlighted as blue and hovering of the mouse on the blue part shows the correction, which if clicked replace the error and if you feel that the correction is not right then you can cross the highlighted text. Below you can see the errors in this article before I published it on the Blog.
