∞ Seven Tips for Writing Online - Dumb Little Man

Dumb Little Man gives seven tips for writing (online). Number 2 always needs my attention:

Short Sentences and Paragraphs are Best

Online, it’s hard to read long paragraphs. Break things up: write in shorter paragraphs and shorter sentences than you normally would. If you want some great examples, take a look at any post on Copyblogger.

If you naturally write in quite long paragraphs and sentences, just do an extra edit to split these up. It only takes a couple of minutes, and it can make your blog post (or Facebook update, or email) much more readable.

Shorten. Those. Sentences... Tips 1 and 5 are great too.

Quick Google Authenticator tip

Do you use two factor authentication on your Google account? No? You should! 

I have a simple tip. If you use multiple iOS devices, you can install the authenticator on all of them. Have them all with you when you set up, and you'll have a second device to give you your code when the first one is lost/out for repair like my iPhone was.

Just scan the barcode with both devices before you fill in the confirmation field.
