    Default Desert Proofreader Thirsts for Perfection

    Hi everyone, Iím Richard and Iím the ďgreybeardĒ at Greybeard Writing Services. I live in the desert area of San Bernardino near Idyllwild.

    Iíll proofread your text for accuracy to keep your reputation and brand secure, and copy-edit to make it shine in any form: web content, docs, pdfs, or paper. I specialize in plain language for science and technical publications, authoritative business copy and B2B, and custom styles for authors of fantasy, science fiction, and weird tales. I can also give your website or blog an SEO checkup, especially if you are on Wordpress.

    My proofreading business is new but Iíve been the go-to grammar geek at every job Iíve ever had, and Iíve had a freelance online presence for 12 years. I also blog for myself, write content for online services like Copypress, and develop ebooks and other creative projects. When Iím not working (haha), I volunteer proofreading for Project Gutenberg. When Iím REALLY not working, I love to hike the foothills, read or play guitar.

    Thatís my story. Nice to be here. I hope to learn a lot from you all about marketing and growing online.

    Welcome to the forum Richard. I think we share a few things in common. I'm not a proofreader, but I am a writer. I also used to offer freelance design and development services, mainly on WordPress, and at one point in the past I offered seo services. I also live in a desert, though not one in California. I'm a couple states to the east in Colorado.

    I look forward to getting to know you and thanks for joining the community.

    Hi Steven, I used to live on the Washington coast, so the desert is an extreme change. I'm loving the winter down south. I never intended to get into SEO and such, but it seems like I spend half my time either rebuilding my Wordpress sites, helping someone out with a plugin, or learning the newest SEO tweak. I wish I'd discovered the various builders (i.e. Elementor) before I got started. I ended up creating an SEO tune-up sheet for my sites that seems to work for me. Continuing education seems to be a daily activity, unfortunately, it really cuts into my writing time.
