Some of these will probably come in very handy for Hubbers.
39 Blogging Tools to Help You Work Faster, Write Better, and Land More Readers
Nice, thank you! It looks like there are plenty of helpful tools for hubs as well as blogs. There are a few I'm going to play around with for sample titles.

In a test piece submitted by the Economist journalist, which referred to black South Africans, Grammarly objected to that term and made some disastrously incorrect suggestions, leading the author to comment:
"No, none of "Stygian", "unhealthy", "despairing" and "terrible" are particularly good synonyms for "black" when you are talking about black South Africans."
I'm getting some funny title suggestions too, "Why Whelping Litters of Puppies is Scarier than Tyra Banks."
