Today is #NationalProofreadingDay!
We dig this day because as communications professionals, proofreading is essential to our work. And yours. While there are certainly times when it’s ok to let a typo or poor grammar slide—for example, a text message to your best friend—you probably wouldn’t want to confuse there, they’re and their in a text to your boss, your biggest client, or in an email to a prominent journalist.
But we’re humans with chubby thumbs and Autocorrect is out to get us.
That’s why, on this special day, we thought we’d share with you some of our tips for proofing your work before you hit send.
