I can tell you I have unsubscribed from newsletters, left blogs, and left Etsy stores where there were typos. I think if you are going to be professional, you should do everything in your power to present a professional look to your site or publication.
I'm not a professional proof-reader or copy editor, but I know my tenses and that whole their/there/they're thing. I can't "sell" this service on Etsy since it's, well, a service, but I can offer it here on my li'l ole blog. :)
I still have that whole Day Job thing going, but I'd like to test drive this proof-reader service idea. So, for an introductory rate of $5.95, I will proof-read your blog post, or Etsy shop announcement, or Etsy item post, or anything along those lines. Think: one page.
Here's how it works:
- Send me an email that you're interested.
- I'll send you a Pay Pal invoice for $5.95.
- Once the invoice has been paid, you'll send me your text.
Not published yet? Send the text to me via email.
Already published? Link me via email.
- I will send you back the corrected text.
- I am not a professional proof-reader, so it may not pass the AP Stylebook rules 100%, but it will be very, very close.
- You can question my "fixes", but only once, maybe twice. After that we can agree to disagree, but no refunds.
- If you have no typos, I'll gladly tell you so, but there are no refunds.
- I will not compose your post or shop announcement for you. See: Day Job.
I thank you for helping out! If you have any ideas how I could make this better (work more smoothly), I'm open to feedback, of both the positive and negative (constructive) varieties. Just send me an email!
