5 Online Writing Tools for Bloggers to Use in 2022

Blogging is a huge industry in 2022. It is a vital component in content marketing (which is a subset of digital marketing).

Companies have dedicated teams of writers to create content whereas small business owners hire freelance writers to do their writing for them.

Some people are good enough to write for themselves while others are forced to do so due to a lack of funds or personnel.

But no matter what your situation is, all writers need the assistance of some writing tools to create quality content.

Professionals and beginners alike can take advantage of these tools to make their work easier and better in quality.

Writing tools consist of any tool that can do the following:

  • Aid during the writing process.
  • Provide grammar correction.
  • Help in proofreading and editing.

Any tool that can do even one of the above can be considered a writing tool. Let’s look at 5 online writing tools that bloggers can use in 2022

5 Online Writing Tools for Bloggers

Grammar and Punctuation Checker by Prepostseo

It is very easy to make grammar mistakes. Even the best writers can unintentionally make grammatical errors. It’s nothing major as long as such mistakes get found during the proofreading process.

The grammar and punctuation checker by Prepostseo is a tool that is used precisely for finding and correcting these mistakes.

It is a free tool that does not need registration. You can go to the webpage and start using it without any hassle.

To use this tool, you can either paste your content in the input box or you can upload an entire file for checking. All errors are highlighted in either yellow or pink.

Clicking on the errors opens up a small window that shows the correct version. You can apply the correction by clicking on it.

This tool supports many languages such as English, Catalan, French, Swedish, Ukrainian, etc.

There are no word limits, so you can check many articles of any length. There are ads though, but that’s just how free tools are.

Yoast Real-Time Content Analyzer

Yoast SEO is a WordPress plugin that is used for the SEO of WordPress sites. However, what we are going to mention here is their content analyzer.

The content analyzer comes equipped with all the formatting and styling options that you need to write a fully-fledged blog post. The content analyzer is free to use and requires no prior registration.

To use the tool, you can just start writing your post in the text box. The box itself is a rich text editor and it comes with plenty of formatting options. Some of the options you get are:

  • Headings
  • Lists
  • Make characters bold and italic
  • Change alignment of text
  • Add pictures, etc.

The neat part is that as you are writing, the tool analyzes your content in real-time. It grades various qualities of your write-up such as its reading difficulty, content length, and keyword density.

You can provide the tool with keywords so that it can check its density. As you may have guessed, this tool not only provides feedback on the quality of writing but also provides SEO-related metrics.

For content to be SEO optimized, it needs to have an easy reading difficulty, an appropriate amount of keyword density, and not too many instances of passive voice usage.

This tool also allows you to write a meta description for the blog post and you can see a preview of it on the search result page.

Seeing how your content will show up in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) can give a blogger a better idea of how to write their title and meta description to be more attractive.

Summarizing tool

Summarizingtool.net is…well… a summarizing tool.

You can type/paste or upload some text to the tool and it will shorten it without altering the meaning of the passage.

This is a free summarizing tool and no registration is required. You can choose from three percentages of text shortening by using a slider.

The lowest is 25%, mid is 50% and the highest is 75% length of the original text. The results are shown in a separate box that has three categories:

  • General
  • Best line
  • Bullets

If you click on general, you just get the summary of the provided text. In “Best line”, you get the best line from the original text (or “the crux of the matter”, as they call it). The “Bullets” option shows the summary in the form of bullets.

You can download or copy the results once the summarizing process is complete. Since there is no word limit, you can summarize as much content as you want. There is also support for eight languages.

Hemingway App

Hemingway app is a free online tool that operates pretty much in the same way as Yoast. However, this tool only focuses on readability whereas the content analyzer by Yoast also gives out SEO assessments.

It provides feedback on the quality of writing such as the reading difficulty and number of passive voice instances as well as the number of adverbs used. It highlights all these issues in different colors for easy visualization.

For instance:

  • The red color shows that the highlighted part is extremely difficult to read.
  • Yellow shows that the text is hard to read.
  • Green shows each instance of passive voice usage.
  • Purple shows that the word or sentence can be written in a simpler manner.

Apart from these, you can also see the word count and the readability score (6 is considered best for blogging). The Hemingway app is also a text editor and you can write your content directly in it. The online tool is free and requires no registration while you have to pay for the desktop version.

Plagiarism checker by check-plagiarism

No writing tool kit is complete without a plagiarism checker. At the end of every writing procedure, there is proofreading and editing. Plagiarism checking is an important part of proofreading.

The plagiarism checker by Check-plagiarism.com is a free tool that you can use to find instances of duplication in your write-up.

As a blogger, you cannot afford to have any plagiarism in your work as it could lead your site to be delisted or demoted in the SERPs.

Check-plagiarism is a great tool that can detect duplication in a text of length 2,000 words or less. 

Most free tools on the market only allow 500 or 1,000 words to be checked, so, 2,000 is a pretty good offer. The results are also accurate and reliable.

All counts of duplication are shown along with their URLs and the overall percentage of duplicated content can be seen as well.

Conclusion

These were 5 online writing tools that bloggers can use to ensure that their content is of high quality and easy to read.

All of the discussed tools were free and required no registration. You can use these tools without any hassle.

Using grammar checkers enables you to sidestep common mistakes. Content analyzers and readability checkers help you in writing easy-to-read content.

Summarizing tools lets you write things concisely. Finally, plagiarism checkers can detect duplication so that it can be removed.
