Weekly writing update #1

Grammarly dutifully sends me a writing update each week. And sometimes they want to know why I’m not writing. I feel the pressure to write each time – Grammarly’s guilt-trip is working.

This week they gleefully announced that I’m using a new tone! Actually, to be accurate, 3 new tones: confident, friendly and optimistic. I’m friendly, confident and optimistic all the time – for some reason Grammarly has lost my writing history over December. Or it’s disconnected itself from my profile again.

Of course, I was also 91% more productive, 80% more accurate and used 93% more unique words than other Grammarly users.

The top 3 mistakes:

- Missing comma in a compound sentence.

- Missing period.

- Missing closing punctuation.

On the blogging front, I posted 5 times last week.

And I started reading Barak Obama’s A Promised Land, that I’m enjoying a great deal.

I’m still trying to get to grips with the new AIOSEO (All In One SEO) – I love it that now I can get an SEO score for each of my posts: this one is 89%. (I’m competing against myself, aiming to beat each new score!)

Until tomorrow.



Have you read my load shedding complaint post? And do you know that a bug is eating my spinach leaves?


The days go past so fast, melding one into the other. Before long it’s time for dinner, relaxing into the evening before slumber beckons like the call of a siren. It’s almost that time again now. The sun has set leaving behind grey wisps of cloud and cooling breeze. It’s time for a new day.
