photograph of blogging

Whenever I blog, I always have flashbacks to my high school experience. I was the typesetter for my school’s yearbook for two years’ running, so I learned a thing or two about effective writing that I’d like to share with you today! 🙂

1. Try not to pad. It’s not just the modern “wall of text” that people fear, but just plain unnecessary words. Just the facts, please.

2. Add value to your pics. For each picture try to tell the viewer something that isn’t obvious from viewing alone. For example, if you see a photo of child writing something, explain (in a few words) what she’s writing about.

3. Be confident. You posted your pics because they mean something, so write accordingly. You’ve posted your best work, and there should be no apologies for showing off that kind of effort.

Let me know if you’re curious to know more. In any case, happy blogging!
