Writing a How-To

Have you thought about writing a tutorial but don’t know where to start or how to do it? Joel Canfield wrote a new FAQ for evolt.org, How To Write A How-To. While it may be a FAQ for evolt.org, it’s a good introduction to learning how to write a tutorial anywhere.

For more about writing for the Web, Jakob Nielsen’s articles, How Users Read on the Web and Eyetracking Study of Web Readers are must read articles. See also WebsiteTips.com’s new section on content writing and development for annotated links to more good articles and resources.
