In addition to the TalkOnPoints.com submission guidelines, here are a few additional tips we recommend when writing content for the web:
1. Be concise
Blog content should be concise and readable. Most blog posts come in under 2,000 words.
2. Link to references
Instead of using endnotes, highlight appropriate text and link to references. If a link isn’t available, include the citation in parentheses.
3. Use the “inverted pyramid”
Front-load your text. Put the most important information in the first few paragraphs and give the reader your main points quickly, but feel free (and indeed encouraged) to delve deeply into the material in subsequent paragraphs.
