Writing for the World Wide Web is radically different from writing for your local newspaper or local magazine. Even if you've had several years of experience as a contributing writer for a number of newspapers and magazines it would do you good to read up on a few article writing tips before you venture into the world of online writing. Here are a few dos and don'ts that you need to keep in mind if you want to become successful at writing on the internet:
Keep it Short and Sweet
People who buy newspapers and magazines like to feel they are getting value for money, so the more pages they get for their buck, the more satisfied they feel. This meant that as far as the length of the articles were concerned, the longer the article the better.
People who scan the internet however are in a perpetual hurry and by and large do not have the time or patience to pore over every word. They are usually surfing the internet looking for some specific information that will meet an immediate need. They want answers to their problems and they want it now. One of the best article writing tips you can learn is how to keep your articles brief but interesting and packed with information.
Keep it Simple
Internet readers are not interested in reading Shakespearean prose. If they wanted, they would have headed off to their library and would not have been sitting in front of their computer. Keep the language of your articles simple and easy so that readers of all literary capabilities will still be able to read and understand what it is you are trying to say. Just adhering to these 2 article writing tips will help you make a successful transition from the world newspapers and magazines to the virtual world of ezines and article directories.
