Tips on Writing for the Web

Mindy McAdams at the University of Florida has compiled a style guide for writing on the web, so if you're considering jobs with websites and newsletters, check it out.

Some of her tips include writing shorter paragraphs than those used for print sources - web readers don't like large blocks of text. You should also embed hyperlinks naturally in your writing as I did above. Avoid writing things like "click here" because it adds words with no added content.
