That’s right, I said it. Who really cares about proofreading? I mean, we all make mistakes. What’s the big deal? Here are a few quick reasons why it’s not so important.
1.Content is King.
People are reading your blog posts for the really awesome content, not critiquing your spelling and grammar skills. They will still see you as an expert in your field even if there are lots of errors. They’ll probably figure out what you’re trying to say with context clues.
2.You Look the Part.
Spelling and grammar errors don’t affect your professionalism. Your peers, clients and fellow business leaders will still take you seriously while watching your horribly misspelled PowerPoint presentation. Do you want to know why? You wore your “power suit” today.
3.Spell Check Rules.
It’s going to catch all of the important stuff you didn’t notice while typing your sales letter. That’s why they made it, right? Just click that little button, select “change” or “ignore” and you’re done.
If you haven’t figured it out, this post is a tad bit sarcastic. Did you enjoy it anyway?
