When I was writing about revision earlier this week, I found myself thinking about how different writing pieces require different forms of revision. Rather than just a generic “don’t forget to proofread” message, I began reviewing what kinds of questions I ask myself when I write and post blog articles. Since many of you are bloggers as well, I’m hoping this can be a helpful checklist for you:
1. Does the title sum up and draw in the reader?
Because everyone hates click bait. Like the subject line of an email, you should always make sure your title gives the reader a fair preview of what they’re about to read.
