Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 4, 11:15 AM

OK -- this recent post on Copyblogger never mentions storytelling, yet all the points the author makes directly relates to how to craft compelling stories when creating online content.


The article by author Henneke Duistermaat discusses removing 'corporate speak' from your writing, avoiding the passive voice, and to stop not using words that won't connect with your audience.


These are good reminders for all of us -- because it is very easy to fall into these traps.


Happy writing and storytelling!
