Comment style . . . a few hints.

Rocky Rex

Everyone has their own style, but there are some hints to make your comments more readable.

Remember that the average reading age in the UK is 9 years …. the “Sun” has a reading age of 8 years.

If you want people to read comments …..

Spread the content out.

Short sentences are best….. break up longer ones as you prepare your comment for posting.

Use a new paragraph for each sentence. . . blank space reduces the reading age of text.

If you can replace a long word with a shorter one, that helps.
