Write Short Sentences and Check Your Work

Write in a straightforward manner, avoiding complex sentences. Use simpler words and FAMILIAR LANGUAGE (K11) to ensure that readers can understand what you're communicating.

Just like short sentences, short blocks of text are easier to read than long blocks. If you break up long paragraphs into shorter ones, readers can skim more quickly. Finally, to avoid confusion and mistakes, run the text through a spell checker and a grammar checker, and then completely proofread it before publishing. These kinds of errors are the easiest to correct, but they are embarrassing if they make it to the site.
