As one writes for the Web: Twenty-three useful snippets
No journalistic experiance / qualification, but I could put a phrase together and was incredibly enthusiastic about the'Internet'. Since I was a child, I can' t help but recall that I' ve studied a great deal to learn how readers are able to browse the web and how best to spell. Writing is part of my work these days, but it's not my whole work.
However, I still administer authors on a day-to-day base and wanted to agree with some of the writing on the web that I have adopted, adjusted or made. The best way to write an essay is to quickly express your thoughts and then refine the subtleties once you have a texture for your contribution.
That'?s how I do it:: In many cases I begin an item with an introductory section and then make a complete revision after the item is completed. Don't work on your opening: it will almost automatically type when you have most of the mail in your pocket. Multipoint records can often be revised so that they contain only one decimal point.
Short phrases are better than longer ones. Overinterpretation indicates that phrases may be too long and complex if they need to be to the point and easy. I see a page with many 15-line unfolded heels, my right wrist begins to flinch. Esthetics are so important online: First impression counts.
Attempt to cut your items into bite-sized pieces. Do not use ambiguous phrases and subparagraphs. Certain items must be longer than others. One long piece with all sections nicely strung together, aligned at the lefthand edge, will be more of a dare to reading than one that is completely opened.
Obviously this paper contains 23 of them, which should hopefully help to make them more legible. Used to emphasize certain words / expressions, especially in longer items. Every author who respects himself will review Google before choosing a newshead. I' m inclined to use maybe six to eight words in a heading to try to keep them in a line.
While this is mainly for aesthetics, think of re-tweets (you want to give the driver 30-40 more spaces to include a comment). Once I have stored a design, I can edit the title without modifying the address. This allows you to type a long, key-word header just to cut it off after you save or publish the entry.
The keyword spam in the address tree is not really nice, but removing'Google' from a'Google Adsense' header (to leave'Google' in the URL) seems to me quite reasonable. As a matter of principle I am writing as I think / speak. Let the public relations take care of that. I will often quickly start writing an essay without too much concern for the small printed text.
I' m trying to include at least one intern linking per item and often writing items to help other pages on our site. I' m inclined to end posts about a "What did I miss" or "What do you think" issue to promote the comment.
