Hi everyone! How’s everything going? :-)

My Guest Post

annoyedRecently, I have made a guest post on my friend Gerald Weber’s blog. It’s called

11 Sure-fire Ways to Annoy Your Readers
(Please Don’t Do This)

It talks about 11 sure-fire ways to annoy your readers. Read it so that you would know what to avoid to not annoy your readers. :-)

Here is one of the points of the post:

1. Writing in gigantic blocks of text

Big text blogs are easy to get lost in. They also strain eyes and make reading difficult.

Because it’s hard to scan. Let alone read.

In fact, a study shows that only 16% of your readers read word-by-word. The rest mostly scan. So at least make it scannable.

I suggest keeping paragraphs 1 to 7 lines long. Then your readers would read your post relaxingly and enjoyably. Ahhhh… 8)

So are you unknowingly annoying your readers?

Go to the post to find out!

11 Sure-fire Ways to Annoy Your Readers (Please Don’t Do This)

I’ll really appreciate it if you could leave a comment or tweet it :-) . Thanks!


What I’ve been doing: The Creative 5 Program

Some of you might have been wondering why I haven’t been posting in a while. Well, it was because my mom and I are doing a project.

It’s a program called The Creative 5.

“Uhh.. well, what’s so creative about
The Creative 5?”

Well, it uses the same 5 story characters, Feathers, Swan, Tablets, Rainbow, and Butterfly, to create over 90 different 5-short-paragraph stories!

It might sound simple but actually it is very challenging to create with these 5 characters a 5=short-paragraph story that is unique, creative, and interesting.

So, if you think you can do it, congratulations! You can join The Creative 5 contest. You only have to pay $1 USD to join, and you’ll also get The Creative 5 Book 1, which usually costs $10.

So, start having fun tickling your creative brain cells and write your own The Creative 5 story now! :-)

By the way, I’ve been featured in Tamar Weinberg’s post How Young is Too Young? along with other very young bloggers like myself. Please check them out! =)

So, how are things going for you? I hope you’re doing awesome! :-)

    First time coming to your blog, know you from Kharim’s blog :)

    Wow i am so impressed, you are still very young and already successfully running a great blog.

    About this post, in my blog, at the first month i started, i didn’t write too much lol, just did screencast and that’s all. Indeed my commenter or readers’s input to write more contents encourage me to improve my blog’s content, so i started to learn and write my articles too.

    I just hope my article can be very useful for my readers and i will be happy :D
