The writing process is a chance to let your creativity run free and tell a story in your own words.
Another, less glamorous part of the writing process is editing.
As you may know, proofreading is essential for any blog or e-book. This will make your work look professional, and without editing it is unclear how many bugs or readability issues will be posted.
Remembering every single little grammar and editing rule is nonsense. While many become instincts over time, people have been known to make mistakes. That's why we've created a checklist you can use while editing so that you have a point of reference while proofreading.
This list is not all about grammar rules. It also includes tips on everything from topic selection to SEO to advertising. In essence, it can take you from the beginning to the end of what you write.
Read on for our complete editing and proofreading checklist – made for the content creator.
