Happy Tuesday, August 22nd I am Kelly Noble Mirabella and this is Tools and Tips Tuesday.

This week on Tools and Tips Tuesday I am sharing two tools that have become incredibly valuable to me. One helps me combat bad grammar and poor spelling and the other helps my personal brand.

Feel free to listen (instead of reading) about my tool suggestions over on my anchor station or podcast!

Grammarly

Can I admit something? I have dyslexia. If you don’t know, that is a learning disorder that makes it VERY hard to read and makes me a pretty bad speller. Letters can be jumbled and words can look one way but really be another way. I have done a fairly good job at overcoming this disorder and it helps I get assistance from the likes of my husband, my VA, and my spell checker. But I knew I needed something better.

Recently I was referred to a tool called Grammarly and more specifically I installed the Grammarly chrome and firefox extensions into my browsers. This tool is AMAZING. Grammarly checks my spelling and grammar in all of my social media posts, blogs, emails and nearly everywhere else I write online. In the past week that I have used it, I have been able to avoid embarrassing mistakes from littering my posts and even my client’s posts. YES! Success! They have a free extension you can try out but if you are anything like me, you will upgrade to the premium version within a week. This might just be the best tool I have purchased for my business in FOREVER!

About.me

 

This next tool might be of interest to those of you on who don’t have a website but would like to share a link to a page where people can learn more about you. I give you About.me. About.me allows you to easily create a landing page all about you. It is a place where you can put your photo, your bio, your social links and more, so people can learn more about who you are and what you are all about. This tool is free but they do offer a premium package for those who want a more robust page. I personally have used the free version for years and it works perfectly for my need. This is also a great page to have if you are job hunting and want to have a “digital resume” online. You can check my about.me page out at www.about.me/kellynoble
