Distributed Proofreaders

Welcome to Distributed Proofreaders. This is a very interesting site that allows you to volunteer to proofread e-books. It’s pretty easy to get signed up too, but what I really love is the way the layout works for you.

Not only can you take a walkthrough before registering, but once you register, you get a great Beginner’s FAQ section to help you get started. To check out the walkthrough, click on the link DP Walkthrough. You will also find excellent instructions on how to use the walkthrough.

The walkthrough is nine pages long, if you include the introduction and conclusion, but it’s definitely worth reading. With it, you can really find out how the site works and I think it will help you determine if you want to participate or not. I also recommend that you check out the Conclusion page where you will find a link to the Proofreading Quiz.

The Proofreading Quiz is a great test of whether or not you’ll enjoy or even be good at proofreading. There are five sample pages that you can try proofreading. Once you’ve found the errors or you think you have, just click the Check button.

This will tell you if you found the error, missed it or changed the wrong thing. After doing this for all five pages correctly, I’d say you’re ready to start proofreading for real.

The nice thing is that you can proofread at your own pace. While they recommend you do a page a day, you can do less or more as you wish. Well, I am off to start my proofreading journey. Are you ready to start yours?!
