The demand to make your website or blog mobile friendly is ever important today; here’s 1 trick that will make your readers always come back for more!
I could tell you a bunch of SEO tricks or formatting hijinks that might blow you away, but guess what? Those are all polished parlor tricks that may or may not create the sense of readability that your users want.
Especially when they are accessing your website or blog on their mobile phones.
The trick that I’m giving to you is something that is almost counter-intuitive to a professional writer. They would slap you on the wrist in journalism school for this!
What you MUST do is to WRITE IN SMALL PARAGRAPHS. NO MORE THAN 3 SENTENCES EACH. THAT’S IT! THAT’S THE MAGIC TRICK!
If you’ve noticed, I’ve only written in small chunks at a time in this article. You should compare how this blog post or any of yours look on a computer screen versus your mobile phone. This is of immense importance to keeping your readers hooked and happy.
If you read some of my earlier blog posts I retained much of my grad school writing style, which, I have to admit, doesn’t translate too well to a blog in terms of mobile phone formatting!
Your readers will get trapped in a maze of unnecessary paragraph scrolling navigation! “Where am I?!”
For example, if I write a paragraph with 10 sentences in it, it might look perfectly acceptable on a 15″ screen. However, try and read that same article on an Android phone or worse yet, an iPhone, and you’re scrolling through a block of unending text for the next 10 years.
You’re going to get bored, frustrated and never come back! But not if you use my trick!
Write in small paragraphs, no more than 3 sentences each, and you’ll be surprised just how much better the same content reads!
