This article needs editing and proofreading. Apr 6, 2009

I clicked on it to read it, since the title's breezy tone kind of intrigued me, but it's so mangled that it's a bit of a chore to read, and that's a pity. I just stopped. It may be that she has something valuable to say --

On a site like this one, especially, I think it looks really awful to post things that haven't been proofread. It looks unprofessional -- and here we are, a community of so-called freelance professionals.

I would even be willing to do it, in exchange for using it as an example of my work.
