Blog articles are everywhere! But most of them aren't that great. As our word count rises, so does the likelihood that we'll start crutching on jargon, overused phrases, and soft points that should be cut. In this episode of Write Better, I will discuss some of the tendencies that we can fall into while blog writing, why we make those choices, and how to edit out the gunk.
Everyone wants to write better. Even if “writer” doesn’t appear in your job title, being able to craft a Tweet people reply to, structure an email folks open, or write a blog everyone reads is an invaluable professional skill.

He'll share the tricks he's learned along the way in his 10 years of writing including when to follow grammar rules and when to break them.
