Writing for The Web

The UX Cookbook has whipped up a quick guide for web writing, which is especially handy because it’s written precisely following its own rules, such as:

  • Edit and revise the day after you write.
  • Use lists and numbered instructions.
  • Use fragments and phrases and one-sentence paragraphs.
  • Add pictures and other visual elements.
  • Employ useful headings, like questions and verb phrases.
  • Think journalism, not academic writing. Start with the conclusion.
  • Use active voice, personal pronouns, action verbs.
  • Use parallelisms and patterns.
  • Choose words that people know.
  • Make your links descriptive.

Check out the post for an example of how these tricks work in tandem.
