Proofreading comes after writing. This is one of the most important parts and activities for one to do as a writer. In my case, I do my essay and following that I do proofreading my essay to ensure that when a live link of my essay comes, it was clean from all of the grammatical errors and vague words that will make my readers turn off in my essay. I might say that this activity may not as fun to do and seems boring, but it’s the one of the most important activities again, in writing. Have you encountered an article that’s full of errors? Have you read an essay full of punctuation errors especially in comma? And last, have you ever commented to a blogger whose one of their posts are full of grammatical errors? Imagine if it happens also in your articles? These errors can be reflected to you personally along with your reputation as a writer badly! Worse, if you’re teamed up with the SEO specialist, if these errors pop right up in the search engine, the customers can react and you also can lose them because of a simple grammatical mistake!

Do not worry, if this happened to you personally before, this can be served as a lesson. So, to prevent this from happening again, you must do proofreading. Here are the Ten Commandments in proofreading whatever you write.

Thou shalt
1.) Wait
Before you proofread, you need to wait for various hours before you do proofreading. Even you are already finished – in your writing, there are several things to consider before you edit and proofread your essay. Example is that you may be thinking in what you wrote. You thought about your topic instead of working about watching if there are errors in your essay.

2.) Omit
When you do proofreading, eliminate the distractions in your surroundings. Remember that you are working a detailed process so that you need to focus in everything you’re doing right now.Wipe out the distractions like web-based social networking, phones, amusements and others. Focus on what you might be proofreading.

3.) Printed out
To start proofreading, print the copy of your article. This is effective than doing it to the computer screen.To make it effortless, print two duplicates of your article.

4.) Sight
So when you printed your essay or some article, read the document loud. This will definitely help one to locate the punctuation errors and missing words. This is easier to do since you hear your voice in this.

5.) Make use of
Use a bit of a colored paper as a guide. This could help one to keep your eyes on the line you happen to be working on. If you don’t have any colored paper, use a ruler instead or any bookmark.

6.) Reread
You must read the article again. This time, read your article backwards. Read the article backwards for spelling mistakes. You will find spelling errors much – easier when you’re reading left to right or in the bottom upwards.Else, you did just reading and not editing.

7.) Use again
Useagain.Utilize an alternate colored pen to check your expected to be mistakes in the paper. You may use green, red, or even blue marker pens to make your correction marks. I advise one to use green and red since they are easier to see than black and blue.

8.) Check
Deliberately check the numbers and sums of the punctuation marks, most particularly commas.Do a refigure in all of figurings in these punctuation marks and search for lost commas, colons, semicolons, and decimal points.

9.) Rest
For those who have a document that’s lengthy to proofread, you have to do rest your eyes for 10 to 15 minutes. This may be sure to refresh your eyes from fatigue and certainly will not cause your eyes to have a blurry vision.

10.) Get a partner
When you have a problem in your proofreading or you happen to be absolutely sure your essay has no mistakes, there is another way to prove it. Have a partner. Get your friend, family, or instructor to check your work.Some of the time all it needs is a moment match of eyes.
