I was CONTEMPLATING Evelyn wood’s SPEED READING course, and came up with a SCATHINGLY BRILLIANT idea to help us beginners along when reading, long drawn out blogs… Ordinarily, we read from left to right, horizontally, LINE by line. It’s possible however, to READ vertically, just scanning down the PAGE quickly, and look for KEY WORDS that give you the JIST of the entire ARTICLE. It suddenly occurred to me while I was watching my favorite COMEDIAN PERFORM: ‘LEWIS BLACK.’ i saw that part of the REASON he was so FUNNY, was because he would EMPHASIZE certain words in his SENTENCES, and POINT with his FINGER when he did so!
ACCENTING particular WORDS this way is very easy to do, and SHOWS me just where all of my TAGS are, so I can quickly SKIM through the article and easily FIND all of my tags, and that it also improves my MEMORY because I also CONSIDER if I have already tagged a certain word before. Like-wise, it gives BEGINNERS an OPPORTUNITY to ADAPT to longer reads by just PICKING out the main ENCAPSULATION of the article!
At FIRST, it was a little TRICKY as is any NEW LEARNING EXPERIENCE, yet you can quickly get the HANG of it! Now I certainly don’t PLAN on using this in every single BLOG I write. However, I do intend to WRITE a few of them this way, so that I cover a VARIETY of CATEGORIES, just to see how PROFICIENT this new way of BLOGGING truly is. I KNOW what you’re THINKING: is this going to confuse SEARCH ENGINES when all of my tags are capitalized? I’m not just sure. However, people have told me that I’m MISSING out on a larger blogging AUDIENCE by not using INTERNET EXPLORER…
I DISAGREE! Internet Explorer can also bring you HACKERS to take over your COMPUTER, and VIRUSES that can shut you down for GOOD! My blogging audience keeps steadily GROWING, and if I COMMENT and, ADD new BLOGGERS to my viewer CUSTOMER BASE on my READER and frequent FACEBOOK more often, this should be sufficient enough in itself to attract others to my blog. I’ve also noticed that tags become less frequent as I PURSUE a specific TOPIC line. And it gives NEWBIES a better IDEA of what words are appropriate for TAGGING and which ones are not…
Give a MAN the TOOLS to build a HOUSE who’s never seen a house before, and he will BUILD you a very UNIQUE house! So I can’t over emphasize the VALUE of IMAGINATION and CREATIVITY as the two of the foremost tools NECESSARY for EMPLOYING BETTER BLOGGING TECHNIQUES! For this REASON our VOCABULARY tends to grow, having us employ larger words to both shorten the length of our blogs and DRIVING our point HOME in a more PICTURESQUE FASHION. Although, you should never use a LONG word where a SHORT one will do, point form is a rather INGENIOUS way of encapsulating MATERIAL, it also can be used to RECAP main THEMES and CONCEPTS when the idea of a blog is particularly COMPLEX in NATURE.
