How You Can Improve Your Skills With the Proper Writing Tools

Today has been an eye-opener for me. I just learned two tips that are helping me become better known to my readers.

The first daily tip I picked up came from an article I read, published by Jay Krasnow. In the article, titled: Use This Google Hack To Find Hard-To-Locate Information Quickly," Jay explains the way he searches on Google.

But first, a bit of background on how the Google function works. When you click on the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button, you’re bypassing the ads that standard Google searches subject you to. In other words, by giving us the option to use the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button, Google is losing money.

Here's how he does it:

If you type your search term in the Google search window — and click “I’m feeling lucky” instead of hitting the ‘Enter’ button, the search engine will take you directly to the page of the first Google result associated with your query.

I am very impressed with this tip! What's even better is that I am not the last dancer to trip over this. Thanks for the tip, Jay!
The second tip is geared more toward helping us grow our audience on Newsbreak. This smart tidbit is offered by Thomas Smith, in his article: "Five Simple Ways to Get 500+ Followers on News Break."
Thomas explains his strategy:
For many creators on News Break, reaching 500 followers is a significant milestone. I’m a News Break creator, and due to an NDA I can’t disclose the specific terms of my contract with the company. But many News Break contributors have reported online that obtaining 500 followers is a requirement for certain kinds of News Break payments and bonuses. Even if your News Break contract doesn’t specify a minimum number of followers, having more followers on the platform still leads to more impressions and views.
This is an obvious one, but many News Break Creators don’t know about it. The News Break platform allows you to insert a Follow widget into your post. The widget includes an image of your profile picture, text of your choice, and a big Follow button. You can insert a widget by pressing the last button on the right of your text editor on the News Break platform.

I am still relatively new to these Creator websites, and I can use all the help I can find to tutor me on how to use as many shortcuts as possible to make my writing easier. By the way, I picked up both of these tips because of two factors:

1. I happen to follow both of these creators, and I enjoy reading their articles.

2. I enjoy reading other writers' works.

That may go against a trend I've seen mentioned here on Newsbreak: "I don't read anyone's posts."

If that's you, I'm here to tell you, you're missing out on some great helpful hints. Newsbreak is chock full of thought-provoking stories that can be a source for our future articles. I will encourage you to read at least ten stories a day. It will be hard to walk away without getting an idea or two you can develop into your own stories.

Oh, and if you know of any other helpful tips, and wouldn't mind sharing them, I'm all ears!

Thanks for reading this!
