Proofreading, Editing, and Social Media Consulting

Dagmar Bleasdale PR picAs a career editor/copyeditor/proofreader with my own business, imPROOF, I have helped numerous writers and companies with their projects, and I would be delighted to work for you.

Due to my interest in social media and my success with Twitter (26,500+ followers) and Facebook (5,000+ friends and fans) to promote my blog — Dagmar’s Home — I also work as a social media consultant. My Klout score is 61.

Hiring a proofreader, editor, or social media consultant will ensure that you present yourself professionally. It’s an investment, not an expense, and gives you the edge you need in today’s competitive market.

I “improof” all this:

  • spelling
  • grammatical accuracy
  • punctuation
  • word usage
  • sentence structure
  • clarity
  • organization
  • concise style
  • content
  • layout
  • adherence to company style

Don’t think you need or want a social media presence? Think again!

As a proofreader, I “improof” my client’s common spelling, grammar, and formatting mistakes. When editing, I offer insight with empathy and humor, opening up new perspectives and possibilities. Straightforward but very compassionate, my non-judgmental personality gently urges you to move forward by attaining focus and accountability to make your writing the best it can be.

I have a love for language and love what I do best: proofreading, writing, and editing. With an eye for layout and armed with a degree in advertising, I worked as an Advertising/Marketing Specialist. While attending UCLA, I worked as a Bruin Staff Copyeditor and honed my excellent editing skills, and after receiving my B.A. in English, I was a Subtitle Editor for over six years.

Increasingly more in demand as a freelancer, I took the leap into self-employment when I started my own proofreading and editing service, imPROOF. After teaching myself how to use Worpress and social media tools to promote my own blog, I’m now also in demand as a social media consultant, brand ambassador, Twitter party host, and more.

Honors and Memberships:

  • Valedictorian, Pasadena City College, 1998 (8 scholarships)
  • Sigma Tau Delta Honor Society member, UCLA
  • I was an Editorial Freelance Association member for years

My clients include many writers (scripts, fiction, and nonfiction), Amgen, Honda/Acura, magazines, publishers, advertising agencies, bloggers, and small business owners.

What satisfied customers are saying:

“I will add, as a very satisfied customer, that Dagmar is the consummate professional. Being new to this business, I was lost, but she took the time to help me get my book ready. She’s getting the sequel if she can fit it into her schedule!” — Robert Godfrey

Good writing deserves proofreading and editing — bad writing demands it!

Please inquire about my affordable rates. Project-specific quotes are always available and negotiable.

I pride myself on not missing a deadline. Excellent references are available upon request.


I look forward to working with you!

Best regards,

Love your blog and your web presence. I would just add that the paragraph above though does contain a spelling error – Worpress, should be Wordpress.

Keep rocking on!!!
