Writing for the web is different from writing for print. Matt Carlisle, a colleague at United Methodist Communications, provides helpful tips for this and many other skills unique to the digital environment in his new weblog at mattcarlisle.com.

He includes a collection of links and articles that are very useful, especially for writers like me who have been taught to write for media other than the web.

One article makes the point that we read the web screen differently than print. We don’t give it the same time and attention. Eye-tracking studies have captured how we move around the screen. It’s very helpful to know these patterns not only for writing, but also for designing web pages.

If you haven’t discovered Matt’s site yet, hop over to it and I think you’ll find something of interest.
