Rebecca (PayforPrecision) Bio
I am a professionally trained proofreader and copywriter, and I love words and grammar (someone has to, right?) My two rugrats of 5 and 2 are my why as I wanted to run a business from home in order to bring them up myself.

I specialise in proofreading for authors, writing CVs and blogs and am also an experienced magazine sub editor for various national magazines.

When I am not buried in edits or eating ice cream you will find me upside down, as pole fitness is a massive passion of mine! I am deeply passionate about Liverpool FC and the Houston Texans (NFL).

The Fuel Crisis summed up in pics 12th October 2021 7:40 AM

I really want that Yorkie. But it's not for girls! Haha

It has unmasked the malevolence and selfishness of the human race, pushing us into socioeconomic chaos.”
 

True. Mostly people are going to put themselves first. However it also showed some positive things. Lots of people volunteered and helped others. Some communities pulled together. I try and focus on the good things that happened otherwise you get dragged down pretty quick! 

If it's a reputable company online cloud storage is great, BUT you still need:

* Great antivirus protection

*A regular hard drive back up 

*Robust privacy policy that covers you in case current info gets hacked.

Everyone should back up their data to multiple places regularly and protect it. Nothing is infallible. Look what happened to Facebook etc the other day. 

Facebook hacked 12th October 2021 7:33 AM

Sorry you had to start again!! Two step authentication is important though, plus get someone added as an admin. A friend or someone you trust. Being the only person with access is dangerous.

Covid-19 again... 1st October 2021 7:59 AM

It's been a horrible time for a lot of people. Switching off the news and ignoring posts on things like Facebook are essential to save your sanity I think!

What worries me about all of this, including the current fuel crisis is that the majority of people still believe any and everything the media tell them. Despite the track record.

It shows clearly that whilst many fear a world where AI controls everything, we are already living in one. It's here. It's happening. 

Fear is one powerful motivator and it's been used extensively in the last two years.

I've been vaccinated for what it's worth and I realise plenty of people got quite ill and died from COVID, but the vast majority didn't and won't. So ongoing measures are still a bit ridiculous in my opinion.

Just make sure you are deciding things for yourself, not what Karen tells you to do or think. 

And mental health wise protect yourself and get exercise, focus on your own life, eat well, sleep more and make things around you better. Those things you can control, do. 

Quora Ads (PPC) - worth a look 27th July 2021 9:48 PM

Thanks for the insight. Might look into this soon. I'll get my VA on the case!

It was so exciting to get to the final!! Gutted about the result but what an accomplishment to get there. We need to get better at penalties still though..

I hope you're enjoying the Olympics, I love them. 

I'm back! 27th July 2021 9:44 PM

Thanks chaps. The summer seems to be disappearing and it's been full on with the business and children. I'm away with the Family this week but I think I need a holiday by myself after this. Haha.

And ASD isn't anything to be sorry about, it's just means get brain works differently and understanding that is half the battle in some ways. The poor NHS help is definitely something I'll accept sympathy for though!

We've actually got an amazing paediatrician who is trying her best to find us help but it's looking unlikely. 

Life and least of all parenting, is ever quite what you expect is it?
