Who do you have proof read your work? Why do you feel it is important to proof read?
I proof read my own work. However occasionally I will invite friends and family to also check for mistakes, as the more people you can get to check your work, the more your hub can be perfected. I obviously feel that it's important to 'proof read' your work 3 times before submitting, but still mistakes can slip through the cracks...
Also proof reading your work will ensure higher quality in your writing.
My work is my product, sometimes even my pride and joy. But when it comes to proofreading work, I believe it is very important in terms of conveying an accurate message.
Just one word inappropriately used could convey the opposite of the message intended.
I just wrote an article titled "who stole my iphone?" [http://zanaworld.hubpages.com/hub/who-stolen-our-iphone].
I admit, there are some mistakes and require careful proof reading. Even hubber has commented to do so immediately.
If you don't proof read, then the reader get distracted. It is always good proof read an article before publishing the same. A distracted reader will not appreciate your article even if it is unique and interesting...
I do it myself--over and over again because I am a lousy editor. If you don't proof read your work, are you saying or believing that your work is perfect the first time out? When you are writing, you are the expert, but if your copy is riddled with imperfection, you look stupid to your reader.
I proof read my own work but that means I either have to wait to publish or do it twice before I publish. I find that if the proofreading is done immediately after completion of writing the check is not done properly.
I proof read my own work. Once I have written an article or hub I do not published it immediately but walk away from it and when I look at it again I can spot either words missing or lacking punctuation. There are also times where I have revised the way I have written certain points I want to project.
I feel that while there are great professional proofreaders the person that can best understand what you want to say is yourself. There are programs both free and for a price that will help you proofread your work. The true test of whether you have succeeded is the responses you recieve from them once they are published.
Proof Reading is very important to correct your writing if you have incorrect spelling and it's characters such as question mark, comma, semi colon, colon, period etc....
I proof read my own work after I wait a day. I find that I do a pretty back proof job right after I've written something.
Since you cannot even ask the question in a gramatically correct proper question, it would be hard for you to understand.

I actually thought about sharing this story earlier this week when it happened, to emphasise the importance of proof reading on Hubs. I didn't - through embarrassment - but have decided it might be a useful pointer to others. I promise, this is an absolutely true story and gives (in this instance!)...

Why do so many hubbers not bother to proof-read their hubs before publishing them?I have read some shocking hubs from top-ranking hubbers and the mind boggles as to how they manage to get up so high in the rankings. Honestly some of them sound like 12 year olds. Their grammar and spelling are...

Does bad grammar and spelling bother you?I don't expect everyone to be an English professor, but for goodness sake people, use some punctuation and a built in spell-check! This is primarily aimed at forums, hubs, and places like YouTube comments. Places where people could take the time to read over...

How important do you feel it is for school children to learn cursive writing?Also known as "long hand" writing, this technique for penmanship has been around for ages. In this age of txting and electronic signatures, some people believe cursive/long hand is archaic and unnecessary. What...

I wish the editors would stop telling people to post on the forums to get their work proof-read!Most Hubbers are very happy to read an article and offer advice on how to improve it - we've done that for years. We can scan an article and spot "illegal" photos or links, dodgy...
