RESOURCE: Tech Writing Handbook

A useful recommendation from @soonguy, to which he adds “Take no notice of the ‘tech’. The lessons here apply to any writing, whether it is a church bulletin or blog post.”

BEING CONCISE:

That rule applies doubly if you’re writing for the internet. Chrome, Safari, and Firefox are all called web browsers instead of web readers for a reason. People don’t read web pages. They scan, hunting and pecking for words and phrases that they find pertinent. The average person spends just seconds on a web page, reading only about 20% of the text. The more concise you are, the more information readers actually read.
