National Proofreading Day



8 March was apparently National Proofreading Day. I missed it because 8 March here in Australia is International Women’s Day and by the time I found out about National Proofreading Day it was 8 March in the US and 9 March here.
But that is actually a good thing, because I simply read other people’s posts and can give you their cool information here now!
