ATD WordPress Plugin : Spelling And Grammar Checking Tool

[This post is part of the WordPress Guide for Beginners – Step by Step Tutorials]

English is not my first language and I often make many mistakes in English. As I am from no-English speaking country I always try to improve my English. But writing post in English is not an easy task for non-native English bloggers. Like others, I make some grammatical and spelling mistakes. These mistakes create a bad impression to the readers and search engine bots.

I always try to avoid these mistakes. Sometimes it’s really tough to figure out all the mistakes. On that case, you can use  WordPress plugin named After The Deadline(ATD). This plugin can help you to avoid grammatical mistakes and spelling errors.

After the Deadline is also available for Chrome extension, Firefox add-on, Open office extension. It is free for personal use.
