Do you personally have someone proofread a Hub before publishing, or do you just put it out there?


I struggle with this because part of me realizes that no matter how careful you are and how good a writer you are, you can easily overlook errors in your own writing. At the same time, I don't always want to burden someone (that someone would usually wind up being my husband) with being a proofreader/editor. Worse, I feel like he may be inclined not to give objective feedback if the Hub...well...sucks. And strange as it may sound, I'd rather hundreds of strangers think my writing sucks than the man whose opinion of me matters the most.

    Thanks! It really helps to get an opinion from a 100-score Hubber, too!

    Definitely good advice. There have been times when I've been so eager to put out a Hub that I've been tempted to put it out before it was really ready. It's hard to rein yourself in, but I try to contain my enthusiasm enough to sleep on a Hub.
