Snippet: "When uploaded and released in the wild, mistakes in an author's work are laid bare and immediately subject to global scrutiny.




Clearly visible to both laymen and pundits alike, these errors represent a negative image of the author in absentia."

Background

I read an excellent article named "The Chronicles of the Modern Man" by Christophe WILHELM today.

In the article, Christophe discusses several facets of creating quality written content. He includes the idiosyncratic requirements of several blogging sites; some of which, I didn’t know existed until today.




I knew that he would like my thoughts on his article, so I promptly sent him the below message.




And believing his work deserved recognition among a wider audience, I formalized my message into the post you're reading now.

Christophe,




I've been doing this "scratching my thoughts into clay" thing for a long time; making it easy for me to spot quality content.




RE: "The Chronicles of the Modern Man"




In a word : Brilliant.




This piece bears the marks of thorough research and hours of polishing. You have definitely raised the bar for quality content on the platform.




I like how you describe both the art and science of writing.




Just like an iceberg, >99"% of what a good article is composed of is under the surface; not seen by your target audience.

That's how it should be.




Contrastingly, lack of adequate research, sloppy formatting and not completing your "pre-flight checklist" before launch (i.e., proofreading, editing, quote and image accreditations, etc.) will surely produce articles that are simply FUBAR (Fu€ked-Up Beyond All Recognition).




When uploaded and released in the wild, mistakes in an author's work are laid bare and immediately subject to global scrutiny.




Clearly visible to both laymen and pundits alike, these errors represent a negative image of the author in absentia.




Remember that the internet never forgets.




Unless an author is made aware of mistakes in his work and corrects them quickly, the post becomes an embarrassing, perpetual testament to his lack of professionalism.

Professionals make the difficult look easy.




In this case, we're talking about the time and energy-consuming task of creating purposeful, quality content - even if that purpose is simply to entertain.




It's oxymoronic, but whether you get paid or not, if your work is head and shoulders above the crowd, you'll be labeled as a "Pro".




Conversely, some authors who produce dog$hit prose are called "professionals" merely because some schmuck is willing to pay for the worthless scat.

It's all about quality.




I could write (and have written) novel-length expositions on this stuff, but this "short comment" is already too long.




To be exact, 346 words, 2,105 characters and 1,788 characters (excluding spaces) up to the end of the previous sentence. 




Lol!




You never fail to impress me, young man.




In lak'ech, JaiChai.




A Special Note for New Bloggers

Armed with the tools in "The Chronicles of the Modern Man" - and "The Standard" clearly set, it's now up to you.




Do not be discouraged if you are beginning from Ground Zero.




Everybody does.




Just strive for a little improvement - no matter how small - on a consistent basis.

About the Author

Believing that school was too boring, he dropped out of High School early; only to earn an AA, BS and MBA in less than 4 years much later in life – while working full-time as a Navy/Marine Corps Medic.




In spite of a fear of heights and deep water, he performed high altitude, free-fall parachute jumps and hazardous diving ops in deep, open ocean water.

After 24 years of active duty, he retired in Asia.




Since then, he's been a full-time single papa and actively pursuing his varied passions (Writing, Disruptive Technology, Computer Science and Cryptocurrency - plus more hobbies too boring or bizarre for most folk).




He lives on an island paradise with his girlfriend, teenage daughter and two dogs.

I have decided to write for other websites from March onwards when I will be back in my dreamland with a lot of time at my disposal. I will learn the art of responding besides crypto from you. I would learn some and share some of my own experiences in the online world.
