  1. Hi and thank you for all the great info. I am hesitant to start for a few reasons. One is that I have never considered myself a detail person, even though I constantly spot errors in writing. In other areas of my life I feel like I am more a big picture person, but maybe I am mistaken in that. Another thing is that I am VERY inept at computer stuff, since I have kept up on things, so Word has given me fits!! I attempted a proofreading online class and failed miserably because I couldn’t figure out how to use the program. What do you recommend? Should I take a class in Word? I keep coming back to proofreading as a way to earn some income, but these things are really holding me back.

    1. Hi, Jonelle! Having a basic computer knowledge is a plus when beginning the program. There may just be more of a learning curve for you than others with more extensive knowledge, but the course teaches many different proofreading methods. Everything you need to know can be learned in the course. 🙂

  2. This blog does a great job of summarizing what a proofreader is. I am preparing to take your course. I have pre-trained a little by reading a grammar book and glancing over the CMOS. Thank you for putting this together.
