The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I work in a large department (40+ people) where we have two full-time editors. They are experts at cleaning up poor writing, pointing out things that don't make sense, and keeping track of the myriad legal requirements for branding and trademarking. They've saved my behind on more than one occasion :).
I recently read some editing tips and one was, if you must edit your own material, put it into a different format, e.g: print it out, put it into Notepad, or put it into Word's "Full Screen Reading" layout (my favorite). It brings to light all sorts of mistakes you won't see in the 'normal' view.
