Hot Text: An Overview

Hot Text by Johnathon Price is a very helpful book in the area of web writing. In this book you will find information on specific writing for database-driven sites; creating FAQs (Frequently asked questions), blogs and newsletters. This book will definately help you in becoming a better web writer and/or editor of web materials. The book does not only cover the technical aspects of web writing but it teaches the reader how to grab the audience's attention with powerful prose. I found this book particulary helpful in formulating an outline for my groups e-mail newsletter. One thing that I learned from this book is that web users are often very picky about the websites that they frequent. The site must be organized in a simple manner that can cater to the needs of all level users. Also, you don't need to write a million things about a topic in order to get your point across. Internet users are often impatient and want to read something, take in the information and move on to the next thing on their agendas.
