How to make your TownSquare posts more readable and effective
Original post made by Richard Hine, editor of The Almanac, on Sep 30, 2007
-- Write your message in a word processing program, such as Microsoft Word, with the spell-check turned on. That way you will catch a lot of typos and spelling errors. (When you are finished, copy and paste the text into the TownSquare form.)
-- Write in shorter paragraphs. Pressing the Enter key on your keyboard creates a space before the start of the next paragraph.
-- Read your message before you send it. Are you being clear? Is there a more effective way to say it?
