Good blog writing isn’t about how many words or sentences you use. Nor is it about making your language as fancy and flowery as possible. It’s about the quality of your writing and being clear and straight to the point with your message.
“The rub is that good writing must be concise without being shallow,” Berkun notes.
I agree. The key to successfully communicating a message to an audience is stating the facts or telling the story simply as it is. It can be a challenge to find that good balance, but when in doubt keep it simple.
In our modern fast-paced generation, everything is on-the-go with content overload filling up our Facebook and Twitter feeds and with new sources of information crowding the web. We’ll never experience a shortage of information online. That’s for sure.
Due to the high volume of sources in news streams today, people need to read articles and posts quickly and easily so that they may go on to the next.
