About Nate Hoffelder (10074 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Hi Nate. Links 1 and 4 point to the same story.

  2. Five Rules for Proofreading Your Own Work, as revised for too many self-pubbers and very small presses I could name:

    1. Don’t. Just don’t.
    2. Dunning-Kruger effect. Heard of that? You may not know enough to know you don’t know how to proofread properly. You may not know how bad your grammar and spelling are.
    3. Seriously, don’t.
    4. Sure, reread it, you may catch a few problems, but if you’re doing anything longer than a blog post, you need a fresh pair of eyes that are in the head of someone who knows what he or she is doing when it comes to proofreading.
    5. Reread rules one to four. You’re asking me to pay for your ebook. Do it right.
