There are only very few online writers who actually does what they say. You can actually see the love and passion for writing in their articles. And they use professional approach to write and express something.
timethief's insight:

Readers today have little time and patience. All good writing is focused on clarity. Improper use of language leads to miscommunication and can also convey the wrong concept.
