Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Stop lazy content creation - Go "old school" with George Orwell:


the article by orwell is very informative and helpful.i appreciate not just this one but every article sent by you.its simply superb.

The main thing I took from Orwell's essay is: you cannot think clearly while you are using sloppy language. I wish I'd read it back in the Air Force, when I was regularly told to rewrite my reports by using passive voice and introducing vagueness. I was told that this way, they would "sound more professional".

This is in response to comment left by Gabs:

If you are still looking for a copywriter, I do freelance work and I'd be interested in discussing the business that you're launching. I'm currently a copywriter for an ad agency in south Florida.

If you are interested and would like to see samples of my work, please contact me at shantaegb@yahoo.com.
