It is September and the number is now up to 9 posts to edit on our monthly Random Editing Day exercises.
Each month in the Blog Exercises series, I challenge you to edit random published posts on your blog, adding one for every month of the year. This month is nine posts. You can do it.
Over the past nine months of blogging exercises and random editing exercises, I’ve been thinking about ways to inspire you to find different content across your site to edit. Facing nine posts to edit today, a day in September when many people are returning to school or helping their children return, I thought I’d offer you the option to randomly edit web pages with jargon.
We all use jargon when we write about a subject. Since this is the start of the school year for many, learning the jargon and terminology is critical to education. If you can’t name it, it’s hard to talk about it.
As we blog, we begin to assume the audience understands what you are talking about. Of course they know. They wouldn’t read our site if they didn’t know what were were talking about, right?
Thinking I’m talking to “my people,” I casually refer to trackbacks, pings, posts, Pages, podcasts, podios (podcast audio books), blogosphere, vlog, and mblog, all terms I live with daily that you may rarely hear in your world. Unless I stop to educate my readers about what these words are, how can I include them in the conversation?
