I realize no human is perfect. That includes me. This is about certain YouTubers and bloggers who should listen to their own videos or read their posts to catch careless mistakes.
This is more for those making good money from ad revenue. For the rest of us, I cut slack as many bloggers and vloggers aren’t making any money from ads.
When an accountant doesn’t read the article or only relies on secondary sources to feed them relevant articles, they need to verify the articles.
In some cases, it’s catching mistakes you missed. When someone points out a while back your copy/paste refers to the HEROES Act passed in March 2020 and you keep copying it for at least a month, you may want to stop doing it and fix all the blurbs you copied that should say the CARES Act. If I understood one YouTuber correctly, they mentioned the $200 trillion CARES Act. When you are reading from a script, you may want to double check it for typos. I don’t know if they misspoke or if the script said $200 trillion.
I make mistakes on a regular basis. I sometimes find them when I copy/paste a theme post. At other times, someone lets me know. In quite a few cases, WordPress messes up as a post goes live.
The big difference between me and these YouTubers is they can afford to hire proofreaders. It’s one thing for those of us, bloggers and vloggers, who don’t have the finances to cover hiring proofreaders. All of the ones I watch generate substantial ad revenue through their vlogs and blogs to pay someone.
