Sticky Readers is a humorous, but helpful book about writing better blog posts. It explains the various ways to make your writing more engaging (i.e. less boring) so that a reader will “stick” around for the whole thing, rather than read the first paragraph, get bored and leave.
Rather than providing high-level general advice, the book uses detailed examples to better help explain each tip.
The book covers topics such as:
- How to hook the reader in from the beginning
- How to use details and specificity to engage the reader.
- Combating writer’s block.
- The top ten mistakes bloggers make that drive readers away.
Sticky Readers is not a book about English grammar, but a book about how to tell an engaging story.
