Writing for the Web: An Overview

Writing for the Web by Crawford Kilian informs the web writing novice that creating and expressing an idea online is not hard at all. It is a relatively short read and I can say that was a definite plus. A few topics that are covered in the book are: On-screen text, Web-site structure, Content organization, Writing style guidelines, Web text editing, Corporate content, Resumes, Personal pages, and Marketing. There is an in depth analysis of how readers process information online differently than they do print and this is helpful to begining writers. There are many decisions a Web writer faces and I did not realize this before reading this book. Every decision that a web writer makes regarding presentation of their content effects the audience's comprehension or lack of it.
