Hello, I am Richard John Rees, I am 75 years old and have worked in the IT industry for the past 25 years. I planned to keep doing that until I passed away, but it seems that nobody wants me popping off in their place of work. So I have been told to retire at the end of April 2023. Which does not appeal to me at all!
Then I started looking back in time and remembered that my best subjects at school were English language and literature. After searching the internet for language, grammar and editing I picked up many hits on proofreading, which reminded me how many people had told me how aggravating it is when I keep picking up on their spelling mistakes and grammar.
So I decided if I am going to spend the rest of my time doing a lot of reading, why not do it as a Proofreader?
