When I first started working on a computer in the early 80's, I used to go through a monitor a month because I couldn't see from all the whiteout I needed to correct mistakes. Back then, programs didn't have sophisticated spelling and grammar check.
This is just a quick post to remind people to proof read articles from the title to the captions on images. More and more, I see errors that should be obvious if the author is proof reading. I think that most readers will overlook, miss or forgive poor grammar or punctuation. Spelling on the other hand sticks out making an article look unfinished and unprofessional.
If you are like me, you find proof reading on a monitor difficult. Sometimes, I print out a piece to read it and circle mistakes. In any case, it has to be done. Simple typos or mispellings can be off-putting to readers. Take the time to proofreed as you "Keep on Fisshin'."
