I want to start blogging but I know that I am not that good with my grammer. But just the build in spell checker in FireFox doesn't quite do the job.
Do any of you know a quality spell checker that can take away at least up to 90% of my mistakes? I pay attention in school with these classes but I've just got problems with remembering the rules and applying them.
Also is it best practice that I use just one spell checker or multiple?
Oh and I know the difference between your, you're and yours. Its more about the actual grammer and certain words that I type in two but should be one word.

I would say use Microsoft Word if you have access to it, it does all the checking and stuff of that nature, then just copy and paste it into whatever blog-posting-thingy you use, then do image adding etc if you need to, then post.

If you are using a blog engine like WordPress, or Blogger, with online editing you should stay away from Word. It tends to put extra formatting into your posts.
I'd suggest an offline software like Zempt that will allow you to do everything offline (including spell check) and then post. You will need to set it up, but that's well documented and pretty easy to do. I used to use Zempt, but now just use the online editor as I find that Firefox has enough spell check capability for me.
