An important thing to remember is that writing for the internet is very different than writing for the printed page. Ryan has some good guidelines for internet writing here, I recommend anyone forging ahead with an article to have a read.

Also, realize that some sites have editors (like Ryan is here) and if they do expect just that... editing. Sentences may be moved or removed, the order of your article changed, links may be added and full lyrical paragraphs may be broken out into grouping of 2-3 sentences. The editor may break your heart or even anger you but their job is to make your work more 'readable'. I guess the lesson is not to fall too in love with what you've just composed, it will likely be changed somehow. If it's your own blog well then, you make your own rules.

A while back I bought the St. Martin's Handbook For Canadians to help me with writing, maybe someday I'll actually crack it open!

Another great article Michelle.
