I’m a horrid proofreader. My mind just seems to fill in the gaps, leap over repetitions, and gloss over the errors. So I liked this advice on proofreading from an article on tricks of trades:

If you’re reading too fast, your brain can “correct” typos, preventing you from catching them. That’s why it’s sometimes a good idea to read a page upside-down. It forces you to pay closer attention to individual words out of context, and you can’t race through pages too fast.

And no, I didn’t turn my computer upside-down to check this post. (Via GeekPress.)
