How being an organized writer improves productivity

Writing and The Written Word

Most people find organizing their writing hard, but being organized is the key to effective writing. You should always plan what you’re going to write before you begin writing. Organizing your work helps you develop order in your writing, which will help in avoiding repetition or even leaving out important points. A writing plan can be a few jotted notes to a detailed numbered outline.

Most writings, especially blog writings, have three main parts: the introductory part, the body, and the conclusion. The introductory part should inform your readers about the aim of your blog post, the contents of your post, and what you’re trying to prove in writing. The body should have all the facts, arguments, and information in a coherent order that can be easily understood by your readers. The conclusion should summarize everything by reporting your findings, your views, and your final…

Reblogging, why do it?

Writing and The Written Word

Re-blogging is one of those capabilities which I’ve known about for a long time but just never got around to seeing the value of. However, recently I have started using it and sit in seeing the value of it in terms of solving some particular circumstances.

This re-blogging approach is really nice because it allows me to write the article once and perhaps been a little more time on it, and then use it in more than one place which for me has always been a bit of…

Blogging – Why use internal links?

A discussion of the benefits of adding internal links to web pages and blog posts.

Writing and The Written Word

Internal links are hyperlinks
added to your page which link you to other pages within your own site. There’s
a lot of fluff articles out there and a lot of discussion around whether you
should use them for the reasons of Google optimization or search engine
optimization (SEO). However, I believe that the best reason to use internal
links on your webpages and blog pages is to guide your readers to other content
that is closely related to the current page or blog post. This means they don’t
have to search for other posts and/or scan down your posts to find other
related older articles. Providing these internal links can get you additional
page/blog use without relying on Internet search engines to bring people back
to your pages or blogs.

What can the use of internal links provide?

Internal links can provide an
opportunity for the typical blog or webpage…

Visually Appealing

Having a picture and the right picture makes your content to
create a positive impression.

If your post is visually dull and has no emotions, most
visitors will run away from your site even before reading anything thus
creating a lousy impression.

However, if your posts are visually attractive, the chances
of creating emotional connections with readers are high thus luring them to
take actions.

In some cases, images are…

Quotes are often an underutilized writing opportunity. Adding quotes, and I don’t mean just a few
spackle on random pages throughout your writing, can be very beneficial to
writers in a number of ways. quotes can also help you convey your meeting, grab
readers attention, and communicate your message better. So, here are just a few
