Bad Writing Tips

I'm a reader. Just an average, middle-of-the-road, target market, regular reader. I also try to write, but the following tips are from a reader's perspective.

As I tool around the blogosphere I look for interesting things to read. I know you all aren't writing for me. And that's fine. But if you are looking for your everyday, run-of-the-mill, overall blog surfer, then I write this for you.

How to Keep My Attention, Not!
5. Punctuate. Every. Word.
4. dont use caps punctuation and abrv alot
3. Capitalize RANDOM words for EMPHASIS.
2. "Use plenty of Tom Swiftys," someone said generously.
1. Use trendy cliches . . . not!


  1. Haha! I'm surprised you stuck around my blog long enough to comment! I'm full of EMPHASIZED words and exclamation points!!!!! I hate puncutating every word, but sometimes it just needs to be done!

  2. Thanks. For. Visiting. lol - Yes, blog writing takes some liberties, so I'm not an ogre about it, but I try to at least write so people aren't distracted by my style. I guess that's what I was getting at. Have a great day! Lyn


Keep it clean and positive. (And sorry about the word verification, but the spmb*ts are out in full force!)
