For those who write articles online for marketing purposes or to convey a thought, perhaps they all need to consider a few things, which they may not have thought of. You see so many online article writers spend hours writing an article and then days revising it, editing it and then they submit it. It seems they spend 90% on the last 10% to make it perfect.
Then in the end few people read it because it sounds to intellectual or it is too long. Articles need to between 320 to 465 words. Once you get much over that and you have lost the reader who generally only stays on a page for 2-3 minutes on average anyway. So, for all you online article readers out there well; how about a reality check on your article writing?
If you are spending 90% of your time on the last 10% which might make YOU feel good but is simply not important to your reader, the person you are trying to convey your thought to; then why are you spending this time, when you instead could have written 2 more articles which were indeed top quality but not necessarily perfect in every regard?
Or what if you considered that quantity for attracting your reader was as important as quantity so you could attract more readers and made a more balanced approach. I am not saying go out tomorrow and write 6200 online articles like I have, but rather simply pointing out the laws of diminishing returns as applied to online article writing. So consider this in 2006.
