We love the Netherlands so much that we find ourselves sponsoring our third Dutch WordCamp – this time WordCamp Utrecht, held this weekend, the 25th and 26th November.

How a good editor can build your confidence as a writer
In talking to people about the idea of How’s my English, we often heard about bad experiences with editors in the past: “They changed everything and I didn’t understand what I did wrong.”
Why we don’t charge per word for editing content
Charging by the word to edit content is bad for the client, for the editor and for the content’s eventual audience – here’s why.
We’re now at HowsmyEnglish.com!
We’re happy to announce that we have acquired the domain name HowsmyEnglish.com, and our website is now accessible at that address.
When to use a question mark in English
In our travels around the web, and in the content we edit, we see one mistake over and over again – putting a question mark where it doesn’t belong.
Here’s a quick guide on how to use the question mark for non native English writers.
Editing – well uh, that’s just, like your opinion, man
Sometimes we’re asked whether we have editing qualifications – to justify why we make the changes we do to a given piece of content. “We can see it’s better,” we’re asked, “but why?”
If you want to proofread your text, print it!
Each piece of content we deal with at How’s my English goes through a multi-stage editing process, depending on its purpose. But we always start the same way – by printing it.
The first stage of our editing process involves printing out the content we’re working with and making notes with an actual pen!
We’re proud to sponsor WordCamps
Our business owes a lot to WordPress – not just because we used it to build more than 150 websites in our years as web designers, but because the WordPress Community helped us to grow as a business and as people.
