I've finally bitten the bullet and got myself on LinkedIn. I'm not really a big fan of social media but reading Louise Harnby's book Marketing Your Editing & Proofreading Business has convinced me I'm just going to have to do it! I'm still figuring out how it all works, but do connect with me on there by following the link above.

Well August has been quite a productive month: not only was my SfEP membership upgraded, but I also took on two very interesting new clients. One is a major national charity in the UK, for which I have been proofreading reports; the other is a Polish company which designs card model kits (like Airfix kits but made out of paper – no fiddly painting required!), for which I have been proof-editing the English instructions. Both of these new clients came via word-of-mouth referrals – one of the most satisfying ways of picking up work!

Today I have received the excellent news that my SfEP membership has been upgraded to Intermediate Member. I am delighted with this as it means that my skills, qualifications and experience as a proofreader have been formally recognised by some of the most established editorial professionals in the country – in other words they agree that I know what I'm doing!
