Content guidelines and writing instructions for KnowledgeHut blogs
- Article length: 1000 words (minimum)
- Title should be meaningful, catchy and consistent with the article's contents
- Article should be of high quality content, not widely available on the Internet and not basic or trivial
- Article content should be informative and In-depth, addressing areas of interest for a wide audience
- Content should be in line with the topic being discussed (heading)
Punctuations and Formatting
- Never use ampersands (&) in place of "and" (unless it's called for, such as in a company name like Johnson & Johnson).
- Be careful about your comma (,) usage
- Use hyphens (-) to create compound words and double hyphens (—) to create a break in a sentence.
- Do not use double hyphens as a replacement for commas — they are very different.
- Semicolons should only be used to separate two statements within a single sentence that are grammatically complete and not joined by a conjunction (e.g. "I like KFC burgers; they're really tasty." ). An easy test is to ask yourself if the two phrases could be separated by a period (i.e. "I like KFC burgers. They're really tasty."). If they could, use a semicolon.
- Use exclamation marks sparingly (and only ever use one (e.g. not "I am so excited!!!!").
- Use consistent formatting in font faces, colors and headings
- Create a headline that touches on one or more of the following: urgency, speed, ease, desirability, intrigue, controversy, outlandishness.
- Use AP style-title case for headlines: http://titlecase.com/#aptcase.
- Keep headlines and sub-headers short and snappy.
- Break up your content regularly with sub-headers (every 3-5 paragraphs or so).
- Make sure that your sub-headers are consistently phrased.
- Provide image suggestions (either as reference images or as hand-drawn sketches)
- Images should be self-explanatory and should convey the main idea being discussed
- Present useful information in the form of charts/graphs or tables
- Include plenty of graphical elements to break up the relative monotony of your text when possible: photographs, Tweets, videos, screenshots, blockquotes, tables, charts, and so on.
- All images should be relevant to the posts
- Use bold to highlight key phrases (but use sparingly).
- Use italics to add emphasis to a particular word.
- Never use ALL CAPS (it seems like you're shouting) and do not underline anything (it will look like a link).
- Article should be share worthy (as we promote the best articles on multiple platforms) and helpful for fellow professionals
- Latest updates on the particular course/technology being discussed should be emphasized
- Case studies, statistics, image suggestions should be provided wherever applicable
- The "Introduction" should present a quick overview of the entire article
- Do not present information as plain text. Break them into separate paragraphs, bulleted points (or lists) with catchy subheadings.
- Use lists whenever possible. They're attractive to readers and make the text far easier to digest.
- Include relevant quotes, tweets, YouTube video links, and screenshots
- Conclude every blog with an inclusive summary of all the points discussed
- Before starting with any topic, do a detailed research on the topic, related topics and existing articles published on popular websites.
- Try multiple variations of the keywords (main topic) to find the top blogs and see how those are presented, identify areas that can be improved, and cover all possible aspects in your article
- Try to make the article more reader-oriented (in terms of look and feel of the content).
- Maintain a proper flow in the content. Important points should be curated in a sequence
- Your article should present an analytical approach (simply combining information from multiple sources will not suffice)
Please note: In every article, we shall provide links to-
- Our related courses and blogs
- Tweets and YouTube videos related to the topic
The above is for the purpose of driving more traffic to your articles.
