  1. More rock solid information from Stefanie! This is just so “right on” for anyone and everyone. Keeping things relevant by adding your own specialty that brings that winning difference is so important. On top of that, the care you give to details when it comes to accuracy and formatting pays off in valued trust from others. Great work once again! Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Does the writing match the tone and voice of the organization putting it out? This is especially important to check when you’ve got folks from outside your org supplying content. A mismatched tone really sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Also, when I hurt my thumb in a doorjamb or stub it on something, I curl it protectively into my fist. I don’t stick it out to get smooshed again. That saying just doesn’t make sense to me.

    • It’s natural for readers of a publication to take a consistent tone, voice, and style for granted … but editors know how much work it takes to achieve that cohesiveness. 🙂
