3 Proofreading Pointers, So Your Writing Isn’t Shared for the Wrong Reason
 
A nice read.

Quote:

We all sometimes make a typo that omits or changes a letter in a word. A typo like that is difficult to spot when the mistake is still an actual word (or words). Just last week, I wrote “head lice” instead of “headline.” Again, two completely different things.

But I have an effective proofreading process that helps me find and correct errors before they are published. (Except, of course, when the error is a joke.)

Do you want to know techniques I use on my own writing as well as every article we publish on Copyblogger?

Any thoughts on this?

I'm surprised that people need such extreme measures for proofreading. In my case, reading my own writing twice irons out most if not all the errors. If I need a more stringent standard than that, I ask a friend to go through it once. That removes all errors for sure. So all I need to proofread is 1 or 2 sets of eyes.
