Todays’ blog is a response to those of you out there who love posting comments! To be honest, I love reading them, but sometimes readability can be a little hard. No, not any person in particular… this is kind of a general writing tips n’ trikz post.
See, I’m actually writing this in the first place because I see it happening all the time, and with a little awareness of structure, readability and responsiveness to comments go a long way!
See, everyone wants to be heard. It makes perfect sense, of course we do. We want to be heard, we want to be loved. It’s the lack of love on this planet which is causing all of our problems in the first place, and it shows up everywhere.
Not only that, but we have things to say. Not me or my friends specifically, but all of us. We have a message we want to get out there, or sometimes it’s a message to a specific person we want to get to them directly.
And sometimes making that message be clear can be a challenge, which is why I’ve written this blog today.
We’ve all seen the walls of text. We’ve also often been the ones who wrote them.. You know, the WAAALLLLS of text. You know what I’m talking about.
Sometimes these walls of text can have some of the most wonderful information written within, but the problem is- is that if you can’t read it, how are you supposed to connect with the message?
Now, the structure is very simple. Keep paragraphs to 2 to 3 sentences. Use that enter button all the time!! If paragraphs are kept short, each one can have their own “thought”, it can be kept to the point, and the reader goes ‘Oh, that paragraph is short! I can totally read that”. Anything longer than 3 lines long and those reading start to feel like “ohh.. That’s really long, i’ll skip that one”. It’s subconscious, but it happens, even for me.
And that’s all there is to it
