Fashionable Proofreading

People have pointed out that I need to do a better job of proofreading my blog copy. What’s “funny” about that is that I’m such a detailed and a perfectionist type of person. So it frustrates me that the copy is not correct.

To give credit where credit is due, I thank my friend Margaret, who has helped me with my writing skills (not my proofreading talents). She has a blog for lovers of the written word that has gotten international attention: http://blog.metrolingua.com/

Now, it’s easy for me to use the excuse that because I need a vacation (leaving tomorrow), that’s the reason the proofreading is so bad. However, it doesn’t hold water. Margaret pointed out that clients or future customers might see my blog and notice the mistakes.

So I guess this post is really about something unfunny with PR. Clear communication is always in fashion. I love to write (Thanks Margaret). However, that final clean up job with copy can make all the difference in the world when it comes to your image.

In case you’re wondering where I am going on vacation, my wife and I are traveling to Alabama to visit my aunt and cousin.
