As a writer, most of us at one time or another, have had our turn at article word stuffing. It is usually when we’re trying to submit an article or story that requires a certain word count.
It’s at these times that we must be creative with what we are saying and try to secure our words as graciously as possible in a legitimate way.
In general, when expressing an idea, or offering tips, article word stuffing (in my opinion, different from keyword stuffing) should be cast off for the more concise and simpler explanation. Adding too many words to up your word count may cost you the understanding of your message, and bore your reader. This is counter productive.
That old saying “Less is more,” may stand true in this example.
How many of you have ever tried to put something together and had to read the directions. Many times, these explanations of how to put your gadget together is over complicated with words that may far exceed our technical know how, or vocabulary. (For some of us anyway.)
Puffed and stuffed will not get you far. People will be on to what you are trying to do. Bring it down to a level of comprehension for all, without complicating. Simple and plain language with some creative juice will go a long way. Make your message clear and add some kick to it, but keep it simple.
So, as with your friends, choose your words wisely, and avoid article word stuffing.
