Do I Really Need an Editor?

14 Oct

I'm here to tell you that yes, yes you do!

You need an editor or at the very least someone to glance over your written thingy. Why? Because I see it all the time -- mistakes on websites, in articles, on resumes, on FB, etc., etc. 

Sometimes it's just the wrong word altogether or a typo or the wrong use of a confusing word (is it affect or effect? advice or advise?) or an extra period at the end of sentence or missing comma in the sentence. Other times it's a bigger deal -- a sentence that isn't clear or a whole paragraph that doesn't get its point across. And sometimes it's all of the above!

Editors and/or proofreaders make you sound good. When your written copy sounds good, it makes you look good. And when you sound and look good, that's a good thing, right? 

Good writing + good editing = good impression on others (bosses, friends, coworkers, and so on!).
