National Proofreading Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on March 8

Today is a grammatically correct day. It's National Proofreading Day. Whether you are sending a note at work, an email or text to a friend, or writing a document to publish, proofreading is an essential task. Even the best of us make mistakes in writing. Our busy lives cause us to rush as we write, inevitably resulting in errors. If we're not good at grammar or spelling, proofreading is even more important. This author's mom was a proofreader. As a result, while I remain human and make my share of mistakes, I am much more conscientious of my writing.


It's very important to proofread a document before you send or publish them. If not, your sentence might look like this:

Its veri imPorant, tO, prufreeD documans bfoRe yu send ore pUblish Dem; :-)


Take time to proofread everything you write, even when filling out forms or texting. It makes your written word look professional, caring and intelligent. Today's spellcheck and other writing tools helps us to identify and correct some of our errors. But, they go only so far. Proofreading checks much more than what computer tools have to offer. Proofreading includes: grammar, sentence structure, typos, punctuation, verb tense, incomplete or run-on sentences and more. When writing important documents, a second pair of eyes offers the proofreading assistance we need. In this case, a proofreader is your best friend.


There's three big things you can do to enjoy this holiday:

  • If you are a proofreader, celebrate proofreading and your important career.
  • Make efforts to incorporate proofreading for every keystroke you type. Make it a routine.
  • If you employ or use a proofreader friend or colleague, show your appreciation to them with a big thanks, and perhaps treat them to lunch.  

Today's Quote: "Don't let the fear of failure triumph over the joy of participating." - - Marilyn Monroe 


History and Origin of "National Proofreading Day":

This holiday was created in 2012 by Judy Beaver of Winfield, IL. Judy created this day in memory of her mom. She said her mom "loved to correct people". Her mom's birthday was March 8.


We found no presidential proclamation or act of Congress making this a true national day.
