It´s your choice how you want to brand yourself.
This is the first paragraph of your post. Try to make it as interesting as you can. This is the part where the article consumer makes a decision to read on or ditch your post.
20 first words of your excerpt are the most crucial as they appear as excerpts on posts archive.
A good blog post exceeds 600 words. This way search engines rank the article a little bit better.
Divide your article into short paragraphs like 8 to 12 lines, this way the article would not be so “heavy” to read.
You can use images inside the post content. To align the image, first, click on it and then select from the opening menu the desired alignment.
Use only subheadings #3 and #4 in your post.
Always give credit to the original writer of the content. This way HBC will gain a solid reputation as a fair player.
