The life of a blogger can be both lonely and terrifying. How do you make sure that a silly error doesn’t make you look like a fool to your clients and potential customers? And, most of all, how do you know if your writing is good enough to share with the entire world?
All professional writers have editors. (Did you know that Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Jane Austen were terrible spellers?) And non-professionals need editors, too.

- The time. My deadline is too tight for editing!
- The cost. Editing is way too expensive!
