  1. Get right to the point and keep postings short. Remember, the attention span of your audience is very short.
  2. In your posts, answer questions, including who, what, where, when, why and how, related to whatever topics you’re writing about.
  3. Use a conversational and friendly tone, but be professional. Never use profanity.
  4. Use short sentences that don’t contain overly complicated words. Always keep your audience in mind, and write using language and vocabulary they’ll understand.
  5. Keep paragraphs to two or three sentences each, and utilize plenty of white space on the screen to avoid clutter and make the content look more presentable.
  6. Don’t overuse different type styles, like bold, italic or underlined text. This can be distracting. Use a font that’s easy to read, too. Make sure that the text appears large enough so it’s easy to view on any size screen. Never use a font size that’s smaller than 10 points.
  7. Whenever possible, use photos and graphics to reduce the amount of text in a blog entry and help tell a story or demonstrate a key point.
