I snapped this picture on my way to an appointment last week:
Think proofreading is just for printed documents like books, magazines, and reports?
Think again: If it has text on it, and other people are going to see it, you should probably proofread it. Nine times out of ten, you’ll catch the most glaring – and embarrassing – mistakes just by giving your document (or sign, or whatever) a thorough once-over. If you’re not a grammar/punctuation person, seek out a grammar-loving friend or colleague to give you a second opinion.
You’ll be glad you did.
P.S.: If you’re a stickler for grammar and spelling, you’ll love our new contest! We’ll announce details tomorrow – stay tuned!
