Okay, so as I cannot submit articles for review, wonder if I can ask this question here, I have recently joined a tech writing workshop, where we were given some insights into writing content for tech blogs, and tech websites, selling technology related solutions etc. I wasn't completely satisfied with the samples presented and the quality of trainers etc anyways this is what we been advised to do. Say if we are required to write an article ( generally of 300 words)on web hosting by X Company,
We need to start off with an introduction about web hosting as such in about 100 words, and
then features of a good hosting company ,again in about 50- 75 words,
thirdly give an introduction of the company in question for about 50 - 75 words, that's a total of 200 words say minimum ,
then features of X company with reference to this particular service, i.e web hosting and finally conclude, by, may be selling this company's services to readers etc. With a total word count of 300.
Now how can we make it different, are there any power words to use or words to be avoided, while researching for one such article assignment, an article says, never start your article by a question, say if you start off saying, are you looking for a reliable, dependable web hosting company, the reader may say, no and leave the page. so how creative can we make technical writing, and how interesting , enthralling can we make this and hold audience attention, I wonder.
I am not sure, If this is a valid post, or would be deleted.
