Note: A newer and improved version of our Grammarly Insights email was created in 2017. Find out about it here.

Stats. They are everywhere. They are in your sports, your weather forecast, and now they are being used by Grammarly, too. Unlike that statistics class you took that one time, Grammarly Insights are designed to provide you with useful information about how you write.

Some of you may have noticed that we started sending you a weekly progress report via email each Monday. Many Grammarly users spend more time writing online than they may realize. Think about it. Between emails, blog posts, and status updates, our users are writing the equivalent of a novel each month, on average. That’s a lot of words! But what does that mean for you? Well, read on to find out.

Screenshot from Grammarly Insights email. Text says: June 22 - June 28. Your weekly writing update. "And what, you ask, does writing teach us? First and foremost, it reminds us that we are alive and that it is a gift a privilege, not a right." —Ray Bradbury

This progress report is an analysis of your writing with Grammarly and provides insights that may help you to become an even better writer. Your progress report looks at three main components of your writing: activity, mastery, and vocabulary.

A circle with a notebook inside is beside text that says: Activity. 2605 words written. You were more active than 81% of Grammarly users.

ACTIVITY

Activity measures your total word count for the week and also shows how often you used Grammarly compared to all Grammarly users. Our most active users are those who are utilizing our free browser extension in addition to our web-based Editor (or Grammarly for Microsoft(R) Office). Hey, all those status updates and emails really start to add up!

A lightbulb with text that says: Writing tip of the week: Quotation Marks. Quotation makes come in singles or doubles and they always come in sets of two. In fiction, quotation marks are quite common as they go around all dialogue; in non-fiction they should be judiciously used around quotes to prove a point or support a thesis. A large button says: Learn more.
