Why do people think that proofreading isn’t necessary? I see so many things online and in real life that should have been proofread. Spelling and grammar mistakes make a lasting impression. If I see a sign that has a misspelled word on it, I will remember it for a long time. This also applies to the Internet. If I am looking to have work done by a company, I always check out their website. If their website is riddled with misspelled words and bad grammar, I probably won’t end up using their company. To me it just says, “I don’t care enough.” I know in real life it usually means “I’m too busy.” My suggestion is to always have someone else look over your website content, sign text, or newsletter. A second set of eyes can make all the difference in the world.
