Thanks for this post! My last five blog posts were between 321 words and 420 words, so I’m happy to know that I’m hitting the recommended length. You quoted Catherine White in your post, and I think she meant to say (or write) to use an upside down (also known as an inverted) pyramid when writing. The most important information should go first: who, what, when, where, why, how and so what? This is standard journalistic style. People tend to skim rather than read, so you need to grab them with important/useful information from the start. Your lead (the opening paragraph), which may be a single sentence, should never be more than 35 words long. In fact, studies have shown that 19-20 word sentences are best for reader comprehension. Thanks again for this post! Cheers, Denise (blogger/journalism professor/tweeter @dbrsat)
When to connect the dots? If each point in the series is obtained from the same source and is dependent on the previous values (. a plot of a baby's weight over the course of a year, or of muscle strength on successive contractions as a muscle fatigues), then the points should be connected by a line in a dot-to-dot fashion. If, however, the series represents independent measurements of a variable to show a trend (. mean price of computer memory over time; a standard curve of optical density vs. solute concentration), then the trend or relationship can be modeled by calculating the best-fit line or curve by regression analysis ( see A Painless Guide to Statistics ) Do not connect the dots when the measurements were made independently.
