Bloggers – Awesome Tool To Help Protect Your Work

grammarly

This is a random thing to get excited about, but as a writer/blogger, I deal with countless individuals who find it easier to steal recipes, content, etc. instead of creating their own. Yes, it’s quicker and easier but come on, how unethical can you be? If you’re too lazy to create your own content you’ll be too lazy to actually make a go of your website, so why bother?

When you find your work “stolen” and republished elsewhere it’s frustrating and oftentimes illegal, and can be hard to track. Thankfully I found a new company to help keep tabs on my content: Grammarly.

Grammarly is a software suite used to check for more than 250 types of spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors enhance vocabulary usage and suggests citations. PLUS – they offer plagiarism detection! They check the text against 8 billion websites! Just enter your existing text, from time to time, to see what pops up. This can get tedious so I only do it for my most popular articles, which tend to be recipes.

Even if you’re not a blogger this is a great program to help correct your spelling, grammar, and punctuation!

I recommend registering for a free account and playing around with it to see what you’re gaining access to.

This is a GREAT source to locate all of the unscrupulous peeps who don’t think stealing your words, and in some cases photos is stealing. I don’t get it, but I’m guessing they didn’t have the same type of parents I did. An annual plan will run you $11.88 per month. Not too shabby to get some satisfaction!

UPDATE – this is now $9.99!!!! Great Father’s Day Gift Idea.

The above is a photo of the candy box I personally received in December.

As Jessica Simpson would say…..”I Think I’m In Love.” I have a MASSIVE sweet tooth. My sweet tooth craves fruity candy like Starburst, Skittles, Sour Gummy Bears, etc. I’d easily pick candy over a baked dessert like brownies. It isn’t even a hard choice.

I’m always on the hunt for a unique holiday gift so I was happy was I when I learned of the Candy Club!!!! It’s a high end candy company that send out boxes of 3 Pounds of name brand candy based on what your candy preference is. Yes, 3 pounds per box!

Save Money With Groupons Coupons – Macy’s, Office Depot, Hotels.com and More!

groupon

This post is sponsored by Groupon, however all opinions are mine.

Groupon is known for their heavily discounted deals on local restaurants, spas and, on occasion, popular national retainers (hello, Starbucks!), but did you know Groupon also features a ton a coupons for online retailers like Nordstom, Hertz, Hotels.com, The Body Shop, etc.?

I’m always hunting online for coupons and it can be pretty time intensive. It’s why sites like theDealyo.com exist! We do the heavy work for you. One site we’ve added to the “check for coupons” list is Groupon Coupons.

One coupon I personally used last week was the $40 off a $250+ order at Office Depot. I had expensive printer ink to buy and this saved me a whopping $40! Not too shabby.

I’m also excited to see the 20% Off Memorial Day Macy’s Coupon! Macy’s offers a ton of Memorial Day deals so this Groupon Coupon saves me even more.

A few other coupons I spotted:

  • 20% Off Any Fandango (Exclusive)
  • Free Benefit Concealer from Sephora

If you haven’t checked out Groupon Coupons yet, you’re missing out on some awesome coupons. There are coupons featured there that you can’t find elsewhere. Groupon personally secures these discounts.

Anytime I can save a little dough and sock away from my European vacation, I’m game for! Especially when it’s a site I love and trust anyway.
