I don't know anyone, but advice on using social media is always welcome.
Opportunities to market my business.
My passion is proofreading. I take joy in making sure each “to”, “too”, and “two” is correct. I love searching for the pitfalls of the busy writer or editor: the repeated, missing or wrong word, the spell check that inserts the incorrect word, the style errors introduced by flowing type into a template, and the countless other errors that interfere with communication. I’m a firm believer that no one should have to proofread their own work. After all, you already know what you are saying so your mind provides the words even if that isn’t what’s there. That's where I come in. I also have a strong background in graphics. I can avoid errors such as inconsistent use of typefaces, incorrect point size or leading of type, missing paragraph indents, and any of the other slight but noticeable flaws in a publication can weaken a reader's opinion of the information provided. My background is noted in my LinkedIn profile.
I am owner of Professional Proofreading. I have over 25 years of experience in publishing as well as 5 years as a full-time proofreader for a typographer that set everything from books to prescription inserts.
Very enjoyable and useful conversation
