"Well… your list covers content, but there’s more involved than that. After I’m satisfied with the content, I always, Always, ALWAYS(!) reread the post and check for mechanical errors. More than once.
Every time I make a change, no matter how simple it might be, I’ll reread the whole thing again (usually my posts are only about a page or so long). But it sometimes means I’ll do it as many as 7-8 times. And, since I (usually) have the luxury of writing my posts the night before I publish, I’ll reread it again just before pushing the button the next morning.
I often find that no matter how diligent I am, it seems there’s always that last misspelled word, double word or other grammatical faux pas in there somewhere. And, because Blogger seems to have some strange quirks (but I’ve used it for so long I’m getting used to it) I know what to watch for."
