Some advice on writing for the web that I really liked

Two articles that reminded me of how to writing essays well...and all the things I don't do.:)

  • article by Paul Roberts, an English teacher, written in the 1950s: "How To Say Nothing in Five Hundred Words". Found the the link off Seth Godin's blog. If you don't feel like reading the article, summary here.
  • An article by Michael Agger in Slate on how we now read online. A lot of text there, but some good advice and explanations behind why we should bullet, hyperlink, be terse and use contrasts in text.
