As a blogger, there are many situations when you might feel embarrassed. Maybe your topic wasn’t trending, or the information you offer is not up to the mark. However, the biggest of them all is silly grammatical errors which not just makes your post silly but also non-engaging.
And of course, your reader will roast you via comments in such ways you wouldn’t even think of. In a nutshell, your content will be wasted and you may lose traffic instantly.
These are no exceptions. I know, it is very hard to keep eye on these many factors with such details. Especially when it comes to grammar and proofreading. There are so many things under this particular niche that one can either become a subject matter expert or a fully enhanced writer.
If you’re familiar with the writing process, you might know that proofreading is preferred to be done after at least six hours of the first draft. Now, why is that? Many experienced writers say that when you write something, you’re highly driven by the motivation and feel. In that particular scenario, it is almost impossible to pick your own mistakes as you already know what you’re trying to say in that particular post. That’s why this time frame is allocated for an efficient and effective proofreading.
Now, wait for a second! Are you really going to wait for such time? Obviously not. This is not productive and in such deadline driven timeline, how can one wait for such long time? There is a solution for such scenarios which are effective, efficient and fast (very fast indeed).
