I hope you guys enjoyed my previous post for Parajunkee’s Book Blogger Checklist, and I also hope it’s helped some of you with your blogging experience. 🙂
This week, I’m putting up another one of her infographics that I think is really important. Also on blogging, but this time more widespread.
Everyone needs a little help proofing. Whether it’s a book. Or a post. Or an essay. We all need a little help once in a while, depending on what our strengths and weaknesses are.
Mine have always been linked back to my dyslexia, so sometimes I don’t notice mistakes in my writing until someone really points them out to me or walks me through them. The most common mistakes I find are completely missing words, word substitution (a LOT of word substitution oTL), words written backwards or utterly jumbled, and fragmented words. I spend a lot of time just re-reading (and re-reading, and re-reading…) over and over and over again, just to make sure I haven’t written something incomprehensible. Usually I’m pretty good at catching my mistakes.
Sometimes… not so much. 😄
But those are my weaknesses. My strengths revolve around how dedicated I am to correcting, noticing, and fixing them.
For you, it might be something much more simple. You might write or read too fast, and need to slow it down so your brain can catch up. Or maybe you have a bad habit of rambling or being unclear in your writing.
Whatever it is, I think this inforgraphic will definitely help. It’ll at least point you in the right direction, at any rate. 🙂
FYI though – I actually don’t like this graphic as much as Parajunkee’s other one, but it does have a LOT of great info on it. 🙂
