Or was that Steven King? No matter.
Jorgensen hit it on the head. However, this writer did give me an AHA moment. Well said. It should be set in bold type! This article made sense, not as tightly written as a similar bit by Dennis Mahoney, but then, few write like Mahoney. Mahoney made me so disgusted with my own writing I quit for 5 months. The thing that really stood out for me in the article was the comment about topical archives. I am currently using a chronological index but I am now inspired to implement a topical index as well. It certainly helps when you want to find several articles to look at rather than just look for a specific article.
Nice to see a good guide to blogging, but as Jorgensen points out: too heavy.

I disagree about sex — everything you send on the Internet, whether Web traffic, e-mail, or ICQ chat, is recorded for later retrieval. It also depends on what kind of journalism or experimental writing you are trying to master. Lastly, everything a decent writer spins should be correct with respect to grammar, punctuation, and style. There are no valid excuses for typos. I fail to understand why so many people regard the Web as a magic place in which the errors that would be impermissible in print are suddenly unleashed on a reading public. If you make lots of typos, practice typing.
If your spelling is bad, study orthography. And read a style guide every now and then. Thanks for a good blog. Yeah, a great read which I think was needed to many, myself including, as a wakeup on the reality of bad writing. I was rusty and really feel like my weblog has re-opened a door I was looking to open for a long time.
The article has great pointers I shall take heed of in my future writings. The desire to remain anonymous overpowers my writing style. I have a fear of disclosure. Your tips are invaluable; I have a long, long ways to go.

Perhaps the most important thing is to have integrity, to be as honest as you can in your writing. Try to document every thing you write. I find I make mistakes and I am willing to correct them. I may sound foolish hear, but I came to this article expecting to find 10 tips and got, instead, ten short essays on writing for the web. This article is everything that web articles should avoid being… in length terms.

Unfortunately this kind of coding was not an efficient way to run on a computer. We not only want our code to be obvious, we also want it to run efficiently on our computers. In this case, we want our text to run efficiently in the brains of the humans who look at it. Your article has elegance. I quoted extensively from it on my weblog. I hope I was successful in making clear where the ideas came from, and what was quoted from where. Er… no! Not elegant at all — in fact completely up its own rear end and nor is it what I would call obvious. It assumes that you lose the decimal and truncate the whole part to its least significant 6 digits, and it takes a fair bit of explaining before you understood why it works.
Augustine of Hippo and his relevance to modern political philosophy. Ideas processors or outliners are a good tool for drafting any material for publication. They allow you to put your ideas together in a hierarchical tree and add text material to the idea nodes. Thank you especially for calling writers on the rampant Unformed Opinion and Blogrolling syndromes!
However, I have a question about blogrolling. What constitutes vulgar — as you refer to it — blogrolling in your formed! So, does this evince that vulgar blogrolling is more of an idea or state of mind you should avoid than an actual practice? Or, am I a blogroller in denial? What exactly were you trying to suggest to writers in this regard?
I was provoked into thought by this article. I thought at first the comments listed above were a little harsh, but I agree the text was rather long. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It will be a while before my writing style is up to scratch, but I intend to practise every day. I have a lot to write about. Please visit my website if you are interested in music and electronic arts! There is a lesson for all content producers — all of whom need to establish a rapport with their visitors.
Does anyone have any links to sites that showcase some of this? This may be a risk worth taking, but it is a risk. I like the fact that on ALA articles are produces that get into the art of content- writing next to artciles that get into design or technique. This tastes like there are more interesting articles to be published! I would have recommended the writer of this piece to use his own guidelines for the article, because after number 6 or 7 I really had to push myself to keep reading.
I have the freedom of choice what I want to read. The distinction here appears blurred for many because some diarists would really rather be writers and visa versa. If a writer diarist behaves narcissistically, he or she will only garner an audience who cares about what he had for breadfast. I got this tidbit from drop. Stanford have compiled 10 guidelines for building the credibility of a web site. These guidelines are based on three years of research that included over 4, people.
While the idea of writing better blogs was evocative, the practice as described here was a bit dry. For subjects such as this, I prefer writers who write short.

The metaphor may cause more self-censorhip than interesting content. My point is that maybe facing the Self is most important when writing, drawing, or whatever medium you are using. Do you have a vested interest in what you are writing? What in the world is the blue picture behind the title of this article? Perhaps there should be a 11, Use Your Imagination. Even there it was not funny, interesting, whatever. Lose it. You can pay attention to any or all of these options or you can be yourself and write whatever you want.

Am I the only one who knows this? I hope not. Mark, many comments have been made, most of which I find valid. However, to write consistently and with the passion you set as the prerequisite for writing that lives, I would suggest nit-pickers first master the myriad elements covered here. I was alerted to this article by someone who shares my loathing for the abuse of the English language.
