    hey guys,
    i have a fairly good english, mostly oral, but i feel like my writing skills regarding grammer are not so good.
    when im building a niche site, does it really matter if my text has mistakes here and there?
    it seem like proofing every article is a very hard thing to do, especially when i had mistakes in the first place lol...which means ill need outside help.

    thanks.

    Just spell check everything and watch out for the "your/you're" delema and you should be fine.

    Grammar and spelling mistakes definitely do annoy most readers.

    If I was in your situation I would probably outsource the work, but remember to keep practising your English so eventually you can write your own content.

    You can try a wordpress plugin: After the Deadline (ATD). This plugin fixes grammatical errors and much more.

    No plugin or software can give you 100 percent correct English. Human input is still necessary. If you think proof reading articles is too much work then may be this field is not for you.

    Aside from capitalization your English is mostly passable but it's going to depend on your niche and if your audience expects informative, high quality content to convert. For example it's going to matter a whole lot more in investing/trading than it would in gambling/payday.

    Depending on how valuable the traffic is in your country, you may also want to consider working in your native language. Competition will usually be lower there too.

    Well, I use a spell checker and then read the article to see if it makes sense.

    If you want to control the creative content, just outsource the proofreading/editing. I proofread articles written by native writers for a digital marketing agency, proofing your own writing is difficult, been there, done it.

    So, you have a tongue language and you're good at oral. That's what I read.
