1/24/14: The Writing Edge for Business Writers

Jan 24, 2014 | Better Writing

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Every week I point you to pieces that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. This week I’m pointing you to pieces on finding out what people want from your blog and zapping those buzzwords.

From Sabina Stoiciu: 5 Ways to Find Out What People Really Want From Your Blog
“When talking about blogs, it’s important to know how readers see them. Some people read blogs to live other people’s experiences. Others look for tips they can apply to themselves. Several people look for business information, while there are many others who seek entertainment material. As Darren wrote, a good question is also what your content is centred upon – information, inspiration or interaction.”

From Chief Executive Magazine: Buzzwords: “We Need to Retire”
“Do your eyes glaze over whenever you hear certain words and phrases that have long passed their sell-by date?”
