Grammarly Plagiarism Check

I use Grammarly's plagiarism check because I want to see where my work has been published, quoted, or used without my permission. 

As an author and blogger I not only want to keep track of what  I'm posting so I don't use something I shouldn't but I also want to know where my writing has ended up. I don't always get notifications when my work has been reviewed, mentioned, or reprinted so it's nice to be able to easily look things up.

It's also a great tool for finding sites that have displayed your work without permission.

Check it out-

"Plagiarism Detection & Citations- Grammarly finds unoriginal text before it gets you into trouble by checking for plagiarism against a database of over 8 billion web pages. Grammarly not only brings borrowed texts to light, but also suggests citations."

"Grammarly catches plagiarism—before you get caught!

With online resources making it easier than ever to copy and paste text, plagiarism is on the rise in educational institutions. From middle school teachers to college professors, educators are cracking down on plagiarized text. Turning in papers with plagiarized content can result in failing grades and even expulsion, even if the mistake was unintentional.

Grammarly’s grammar and plagiarism checker crosschecks your text against our huge database of web pages, detecting plagiarized passages before they get you into trouble. By comparing your work to billions of web pages, Grammarly’s software highlights the sections that have been previously published elsewhere. You can then fix the issue by either deleting the plagiarized text, paraphrasing it, or citing it as a quotation. Not sure how to cite your sources? Don’t worry; Grammarly’s grammar and plagiarism checker has you covered."

I like the possibilties this gives an author- a little bit of reversal from the intended usage but you can check your text- your writing and see where it has ended up. Just think- you can put in a poem, a short story, a blog post, a tutorial, a section of your book- and you can see where it's been published.

Wouldn't you like to keep your blog safe, from both posting content you shouldn't and for checking to see where your content has ended up?
