I'm Lottie and I'm 30 years old. I am a full time lawyer but I tend to do a lot of work outside of this. For example, over the years I've regularly been given letters, reports, blogs, websites, CVs etc to proofread and / or edit for friends and family. I've no further education qualifications in English - aside from As at GCSE level - as I went straight into law, but I've always had a high level of punctuation, grammar, spelling etc. I am somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to these things, hence why people who know me always ask me to check their work before they get sent out or posted online.
As I have no further qualifications in this field and I am in essence asking you to take my word, I've tried to make my hourly rate competitive. I am happy to discuss an alternative to an hourly rate, i.e. a one-off fee, if it suits the job. I'm new to this so I am not sure how it all works!
I've done this for years around my own work for people I know as 'favours', but I was recently approached to undertake paid work for someone on their new website. I basically check everything that ever gets posted on there to make sure it's all written correctly. They told me about peopleperhour.com and said I should be doing this as a side-line - so here I am.
I also run 3 different social media accounts for very different businesses. I run their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for them in return for payment / free services from their respective businesses. These jobs have come from recommendations from people I know, because they know every post will be well structured and professional. I am very social media savvy and enjoy doing that sort of thing anyway.
So if I've not rambled on too much so far, I am basically offering things like proofreading and editing correspondence, websites, social media accounts, blogs, advertisement, posters - anything really. If I think a job is out of my comfort zone I will be honest with you and not take the work on.
Please feel free to ask me any questions!
