Writers Want Accuracy and Shortcuts When They Write

Today has been an eye-opener for me. Besides using Grammarly to proofread my articles, I just learned two new 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!

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. NewsbBeak 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!
