The Importance of Proofreading

Today I want to give you a little advice. Proofread your email before you hit send.

Yesterday I wrote an email to someone. I didn’t proofread it before I hit send and I made a terrible typo.

Somehow instead of typing the woman’s name, which was Morgan I typed moron.

Hello Moron,

I was so embarrassed and she was very offended. I can’t say I blame her.

This all reminded me of a typo I made a couple of years ago in an article on abortion. In the article I wrote contraception instead of conception.

“I believe that there is a human life forming from the moment of contraception conception.”

Advice: When you’re done composing a message, email or blog comment, make sure that you have taken the time to proofread it for possible typos or grammatical errors.

Read your message twice even three times if you have to before hitting that send or submit button.

I hope you learned something from this very embarrassing experience of mine.

Never get in too much of a rush not to proofread.

Proofreading may just protect you from embarrassment and having to clarify.
