I apologize in advance for posting this publically but I was unable to locate a contact e-mail for the author. I am not a grammar nazi and I normally don't comment on online articles such as this. However, given the subject matter and the fact that the author's note states that a commercial editing service was used, I just have to say that you were ripped off! The piece sounds like it was written by a non-native English speaker and is riddled with many basic errors. I have nothing against non-native speakers; indeed, if that were the case here, it wouldn't be a bad job, but it's an article ABOUT the importance of using an editor and it desperately needs just that!
Please contact me offline if you would like a thorough edit of this piece. And please stop using the so-called professional editing service. In the opinion of this professional editor, you're not getting anywhere close to "perfect."

Those tips could also apply for outsourcing writing. I should admit, we have try outsourcing writing as an experiment (we do not have a blog yet), to see if it could be an option for us. At the end, we realised that, even if we could get a good gohst writer, the style, the ideas expressed, the knowledge about an specifc topyc, etc, needs an extensive editing, in the way you just described.
