Why You Should Write Good Website Content

Content Gets ReadUnless you’ve been living on Mars you have probably heard many speak on why you should write good website content.  TV commercials, newspaper flyers and, yes, even the internet is full of buy this, sign up here, the best deal ever!  And, unless you’re looking for those specific products, you tend to tune them out or click away to the next website on page one.

Many of us write a daily journal for a variety of reasons; whether it’s to jot down our daily thoughts, vent our frustrations, or even as part of a daily blog.  But we don’t expect it to be headline news nor have a newspaper named after us.

In researching this post, I continually found newspaper articles or newspaper names coming up in the search engines.  But I did not want to write for “The Daily Journal”, a newspaper from whatever town that was ranking highest today.
