WORD NERDS: How writers can use function words to cultivate reader engagement... (Especially for digital content creators, based on some intriguing research reported in New Scientist.)

Why give any of your thoughts away, free, online?
For information's sake. What is it with "article authors" these days? Once, back when I was but a slip of a girl, people used to write articles for websites because they wanted to build ...

The closest thing I've found to a Google+ pun.

In other news you may not know, Google has a charmingly adorable 404 page, pictured here:

A topic that's dear to my heart. And which applies to all copy -- web, print, long, short, etc. etc.

Speaking from experience...
The launch of Google+ signalled social media saturation for more than a few web freelancers. What makes us subscribe to so many social networks? And how can we break the social media shackles? Georgin...

Egomania and creativity. "I'm not an egomaniac," said a friend recently, "so I don't have a blog." It reminded me of that thing that so many writers say about writing out o...

"All I can say to that, young man, is that if this were tumblr, we wouldn't be having this conversation." (On the decline of common sense and quality content online.)
Dumb and dumber. This week has been laden with dumbness. It's like the web has gone to Hawaii and left filler content in its stead. No kidding. Ready? Dumb #1: Really, really big buttons Okay, it&...

Ah, in that case I totally agree.

The "reblog" feature on Tumblr just doesn't work for a platform that wants to present itself as offering an alternative to blogging; it works on Twitter because micro-updates are really relevant original content for search engines (that I've seen).

The blogs that outright steal images are no better, even though they are ran on WordPress, I'm talking about image sites like ICanHasCheezburger and associates which pretty much steal content from sites like Reddit, and then plaster their own logo on the image.

Shameful, but profitable apparently.

Breaking: 37signals finds long copy converts better. I say, "told you so." But not in so many words.
Info + clarity = communication + conversion. Not long ago, I suggested (caustically, I admit) that we do need to tell people about the service they're signing up for in order to secure said signup...
