Proofreading – Do you need help?

white flower on black keyboard

Proofreading does not come easily to too many.

Unfortunately, errors with grammar, spelling, and punctuation mistakes are noticeable.

I’m not referring to the use of literary license, when an author plays with words purposefully. That can be pretty entertaining!

For some readers, proofreading mistakes make all the difference between continuing to read or leaving your site because their train of thought was thrown off the rails.  When they have to stop to figure out what you meant to say, the entertainment value plummets.

This doesn’t apply to everyone, but wouldn’t it feel great to know you had a few Less Errors? A few more people clicking on your links and staying on your page a little longer?

I’m not a professional. (Feel free to point out errors if you find them in my own content!)  I just enjoy helping others, and typos “jump out at me” often. Also, I grew up with an English major for a mother … being corrected, then having to repeat the corrected phrase … That is super fun. 

Here’s how to get started:

Leave the link of one post in the comments below. It can be a new page for your blog, a tweet for Twitter, a post on Instagram, a pin for Pinterest, or a Facebook update. I’ll look it over and give only constructive feedback on potential grammar/spelling/punctuation changes you could make. Of course, it is up to you whether you use the suggestions or feel they are not suited to your audience. Turn around time depends on requests, but I’ll work hard to get to everyone quickly!

What a great way to gain another view on your post!

    10k group. I consider this skill a gift. Not everyone has the ability to see the details and correct what’s wrong or give better solutions. Some see, but have no suggestions. Some never tell you and some don’t care lol. I don’t mind your suggestions. Do you edit books?

      I did edit my mother’s latest book, and had a blast doing so! Now I get to play agent for her too! 🙂 That role doesn’t feel as natural to me, but I welcome the challenge.
