In this brave new world of self-publishing, social media, blogging, and every other way your friends, family, and strangers put their words out on the internet, you might have fallen under the assumption that editors are superfluous.

Not so.

As an author myself, I can tell you that my books would be nowhere near as entertaining or polished if I didn’t pay someone else to look at them before they scoot out into the world. Likewise, these articles would be riddled with typos and perhaps missing links (sorry, editors!) here and there. [editor’s note: LOL]

But you don’t have to take my word for it – these 12 typos illustrate perfectly (and hilariously) that it pays to have a second (or third) pair of eyes.
