Determining Exposure – too bright?

I tend to over-expose my photos, especially in bright light as I use the LCD At the back of the camera more than that digital viewfinder. What looks like a dark image there turns out to be a beautiful exposed portrait of a scene!
This article is going to be useful, although I don’t know if I’d have the patience to follow everything there!
I’ve already started shooting at -1 EV and it helps. Many over-exposure problems can be solved in post-processing but when it’s way over-blown, well, bye bye detail!
