My Guest Post: 11 Sure-Fire Ways to Annoy Your Readers & What I’ve Been Doing

Hi everyone! Howโ€™s everything going? ๐Ÿ™‚

My Guest Post

annoyedRecently, I have made a guest post on my friend Gerald Weberโ€™s blog. Itโ€™s called

11 Sure-fire Ways to Annoy Your Readers
(Please Donโ€™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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 itโ€™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. Ahhhhโ€ฆ 8)

So are you unknowingly annoying your readers?

Go to the post to find out!

11 Sure-fire Ways to Annoy Your Readers (Please Donโ€™t Do This)

Iโ€™ll really appreciate it if you could leave a comment or tweet it ๐Ÿ™‚ . Thanks!

What Iโ€™ve been doing: The Creative 5 Program

Some of you might have been wondering why I havenโ€™t been posting in a while. Well, it was because my mom and I are doing a project.

Itโ€™s a program called The Creative 5.

โ€œUhh.. well, whatโ€™s so creative about
The Creative 5?โ€

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 youโ€™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! ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way, Iโ€™ve been featured in Tamar Weinbergโ€™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 youโ€™re doing awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers!
