That, however, has changed: Marieke has just hit Publish on an excellent overview of all things blogging. Don't miss it!

    Awesome article, @djbaxter ! Lots of detail.

    I particularly wanted to read it because it was on Yoast. I use their plugin and I think it's great. Loved it more before the Google animals got loose but that's not their fault and it's still a great product. Point is, they're experts on this stuff, I trust it and was eager to read the juicy details. :D

    Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing this article. On the topic of readability, I'd like to share how I make sure my articles meet that criteria.

    First, I write every post in the Hemingway App. This helps ensure that my post is easy to read by avoiding difficult to read sentences, unnecessary or hard to understand words (adverbs and technical terms), and isn't passive in voice. I shoot for a 6th to 9th grade reading level and 400 to 500 words.

    Second, I paste every post into Grammarly to do another check for spelling and grammar issues. This is a must. The worst thing we can do is write a post that isn't grammatically correct. Your authority will erode if you do.

    Finally, I publish from Hemingway to my WordPress site and then let Yoast help me make the final adjustments to get the green light. Following steps 1 & 2 have always resulted in a green light, but Yoast always helps me find one or two readability improvements.
