After reading this, it is unlikely I’ll write blog entries like this one anymore! According to that article – without nice big heading breaks or separate pages, it is unlikely that many of you would have read the entire thing or absorbed it. You might have read the bit about a new blog I’m reading – but the rest of it was probably scanned and not really read.
Using More than one header
Maybe I need to start using headers! To break it up. It is a problem I have. When I’m writing on the books I tend to go on and on and on (and on…). I really relied on my editors to say “enough already, we need a break here”. They are the ones that stick in the nice sub-headings for me many times (something I really appreciate).
I’ll keep the ideas from that page in mind for the future. I had three other articles I was going to talk about here as well, now I just think I’ll save them for another day…
