I see you come highly recommended as a proofreader.   I've been a reporter for the last 18 years and am very busy.  I'm currently on
Eclipse and take about 600 - 800 pages a week.   If you're interested in helping me lighten my load a bit, let me know.


Thank you!

If you could send some rates and a referral, I would be glad to keep you in mind.

Hi Donna.

I haven't forgotten about you. Things are slow down here in the Deep South. Hope it picks up after the New Year starts.

Merry Christmas...and I'm happy to be your friend.

Hi Donna, how do I get your rate sheet? I've never used this site for scopists yet. Can you send it to me at

I am looking for a proofreader to give me some assistance in the next couple of weeks. If you are available, please contact me and provide some references. That would be great.

Hey Donna,
Are you currently looking for more scoping work? If so, email me, and we can discuss rates and all. Thanks

Just figured out how to add you as my friend -- duh! I'm not very good at these social sites. You should see how boring my Facebook page is... I started reporting in May 1982. That's 27 years, isn't it??? You came just a litle after I started. I was at a reporting seminar today and met a woman who also used to work for Ruth before we were there. She couldn't believe that I stayed with her as long as I did. (Either can I!) And I STILL comment every time I see a "medly of green"! I'm glad we've reconnected too. You, coincidentally, are one of my favorite people too. Can't belive that with such a mutual fan club that we haven't stayed in touch for so long. Oh, well. No time like the present. BTW, I couldn't find your reporter comments on your page. All I could find was about 40,000 requests for your services. Boy, am I lucky to be in your good graces!
