In Honor of the Scripps National Spelling Bee!

Nik Baron from Grammarly reached out to me with a fun, free little opportunity to help promote the Scripps National Spelling Bee, which began on the 24th and wraps today (full schedule here; better late than never). And since this is the internet and the internet loves quizzes, I'm happy to share with you Grammarly's special quiz via grammarly.com/grammar-check-- What Kind of Speller Are You? (I'm a Writing Realist, if you're curious). And once you're done learning about your spelling style, show off your spelling skills with the Scripps National Spelling Bee's own quiz, Are You a Word Whiz?

Disclosures: I'm not being financially compensated for the shout-outs to Scripps or Grammarly, but if I email Grammarly a link to this post I get a free one-month subscription for their software. I've used Grammarly before, actually, and recommend it to my students who struggle with spell-check in Word and need some extra oomph with their grammar. Word isn't very intuitive (alas, machines and context) and Grammarly does catch more mistakes (it even recognizes passive voice).
