Working in social media, there seems to be a new feature to research and explore every week. Despite Google searches providing pages of links claiming they can help me, not every click is a revelation. It’s not that I find a lot of incorrect content, rather that many writers don’t present their writing in an easily readable way. Let me help you learn what makes the difference difference between good and bad readable online content.
Once upon a time I was Rory Gilmore, able to sit in a crowded cafeteria or a bumpy bus and loose myself in the pages of a book. Now I’m more like Dug, that dog from "Up" whose focus switches on a dime at the sight of a squirrel. What happened to me? Apparently, the same thing that’s happened to many of us. Our increasing habit of reading on digital devices is altering our reading styles. Even when I’m enthusiastically interested in a piece of writing, I now fight my eyes’ physical compulsion to skim over the lines rather than digest the beauty of each word. The idea of getting lost in a piece of writing now feels more anxiety-inducing than comforting.
