She is beautiful!
If she walked in here you here you wouldn’t notice her for her beauty.
It’s not that she commands the room or has a very large presence.
The first thing you will notice about her is her loudness!
The loudness of her voice!
The loudness of her spirit!
The loudness of that red open scar on her face!
The loudness of the places she carries with her!
The loudness of her will to survive!
She claims to have built an ice cream shop and a brothel in the desert!
When I met her she told me, “I am not a hooker, but you will think me one. Trust me love, I am not. I am just a girl who loves to fuck! I love dick! I love beer! I love life! I love dick! Oh I am reaping that! Pardon me love” she said. I stood there mouth wide open, I think she noticed because she continued to shock me “I love the feel, the girth, the hardness, the smell, the way it hangs stiff and hard like Superman’s arm when he takes flight. I like when it touches my wet clitoris, just rubbing against it! Oh sweetie, I can come just thinking about it!” She is licking her lips and touching her punani as she speaks. “I don’t like it when they finger me though, I want him inside! I want him to stroke the base, the sides and the top of my walls. If he doesn’t fit, I close my legs and let him play on my lips, he thinks he is so big! But I’ve just got big lips”. How do you know all of this, I ask “sweetie I told you I love to fuck! And you look like you will need!”
Testing for readability is one of the marks of professionalism.
Maybe I’m just on my soapbox again, but one of the problems I see increasingly these days is serious errors in grammar spelling, and punctuation. I am not a perfectionist, and my writing is not always perfect either. But some of the web content these days just gives me a headache!
- Things like:
- “Always you should stop not you are doing what and think of more it.”
- “Do want you to more than a man…”
- “Safe fails not on to time…”
OK, to be fair, I realize not everyone is native to the English language. Especially as spoken here in the US. And NO, I don’t think we are superior to the rest of the world here, or that we are somehow special and should be treated as such.
My contention is; don’t try to create content in English unless you are a native of an English speaking country, or you are VERY fluent in our language. That’s the reason why I don’t create content for Mandarin Chinese readers, or for those who speak Pashto, etc. I would sound like a fool even with the best translation programs.
What difference does it make?
- Probably none if you are just blogging your thoughts for a few people like friends and family to read.
Somewhat important if you would like to get your ideas across clearly and concisely.
- Critically important if you want to be taken seriously.
What to do?
There are any number of free tools online that you can use to improve your writing skills.
Grammarly.com Everyone should be using at least the free version of this app. And if you invite friends and contacts to try the Grammarly app, you can even get access to the upgraded version.
Readability WebpageFx provides a very handy tool for checking the readability of your text. You can either enter the url of an article you have already published, someone else has published (for comparison to your own writing) or you can copy and paste the text you want to check directly into the entry field of the website.
WordWeb Wordweb provides a “one-click English Dictionary and Thesaurus for Windows. Dictionary apps for mobiles, tablets and Mac desktop.” I find this handy little app extremely helpful, especially when I get stuck for a word.
There are plenty of other free resources. These are my favorites. Remember, if you want to be taken seriously, you have to communicate well.
What are your most read posts?
My recent personal testing seems to indicate that often short posts are more effective in some areas. Especially if media like photos or video is included. Seems like 400 words or less are the best.
When I get wound up, I usually write about 1200 – 1500 words. I notice these posts usually get fewer interactions, although that also depends on the quality of writing I do, and how effective the headline is.
I would appreciate hearing your thoughts!
Just a quick update on my blog. Thanks to my new friends at WordPress, and what SEO relevant tricks I know, since October 29th I have achieved results I am rather proud of.

This is a little more impressive when you realize it was all done organically, by link building such as trackbacks and pingbacks, and taking the time to read, like, and comment on other’s blogs. No paid advertising was used.
