However, what they may not realise is how beneficial and important it is to have another set of eyes look over their content.
1. You miss your mistakes
You know what to expect as you read, therefore it is more likely that your mind will fill in any missing words and make any corrections without you even noticing them.
2. You overlook vague wording
Having somebody else read over it, especially someone experienced who knows what to look for, will ensure that your thoughts will come across clearly to your readers.
3. More mistakes = less credibility
As readers, when we come across a piece of information that is full of mistakes and spelling errors, we find ourselves questioning how valid these facts that we are reading really are.
The more mistakes there are the less genuine and truthful the content will seem.
4. No mistakes = engaged readers
5. Writing mistakes are easily made
