I have been spending A LOT of time in cyberspace of late – moreso than usual.

Not surprisingly, I’ve noticed new trends re: how individuals (both trained and citizen journalists) are actually developing their ‘online voice’ – the charming and evolving skill – we all continue to refine.

However,  they are doing so at the expense of readability with layouts mirroring the traditional designs of the printed page.

IMHO paragraphs are both the blogger and readers best friend.

Lots of white space is the key to keeping online readers engaged.

So in the interests of practising what I preach… Enjoy the white space and remember interesting topics and brevity of prose will be greatly appreciated by most. Don’t you think? 🙂
