A couple weeks ago, many of you were gracious enough to respond to my request for your feedback on what you think makes a great article. I think it’s so helpful to change our perspective from the usual one of the writer and to step back now and again to remember what it feels like to be a reader.
Are we creating articles that we would be attracted to if we were searching for information on our topic?Â It’s a question that makes you say, “Hmm…” and start to see the content you produce from a different point of view.
I picked out 10 major points from the feedback that you provided about what you think makes a great article, and last time we covered the first 5 points. As a recap, the first 5 tips we covered last time were:
1 â€“ The Article Should Provide Practical, Useful Information That Will Improve The Life Of The Reader In Some Way.
2 â€“ The Article Is Not Too Long And Is Easy To Read.
3 â€“ The Writing Reveals The Personality Or Feelings Of The Writer (Depending On The Topic).
4 â€“ The Article Should Provide Explicit And Strong Instructions On How The Teaching In The Article Can Be Applied To The Readerâ€™s Life.
5 â€“ The Article Needs To Have A Catchy Title That Clearly Pertains To An Area Of Interest Of The Reader.
Now, let’s take a look at the rest of the tips that YOU came up with (which I heartily agree with!):
