What's your take on FAQs? http://ow.ly/JNgVn #webwriting
The very purpose of classification, navigation and search is to deal with customers' frequently asked questions (FAQs). The very concept of the FAQ simply doesn't make sense. It's a carryover from the early days of IT and the Web, where, essentially, designers were too inexperienced to design a ...

Trying to communicate in #plainlanguage in #LocalGov? Here's an idea on how to deal with planning and legalese http://ow.ly/IzXWr

Some good advice on file and folder names on the web http://ow.ly/JNiUC #webwriting #seo

Does your organisation suffer from acronymophilia? http://ow.ly/IHOKF #plainlanguage
