Good communication is key to any successful activity. If you and I are talking face-to-face I can usually tell when I may have used a word that confused you. I would then backtrack and make sure I explained what I meant before we would continue our conversation.
Online we don’t have that immediate visual feedback or the ability to occasionally take a pause and explain something better to someone.
A simple way of to clear up confusion about terminology in written format is to have confusing words linked to a definition of the word. Essentially, a “glossary of terms” appended to your content (thank you High School Professional Writing class).
KEY REQUIREMENTS: It had to take as little of my time as possible to add new words to it and be super easy for myself and my readers to use.
Glossary for WordPress will auto-magically link words to a short description of that word, as long as the word is listed in my glossary.
I create glossary items and their descriptions just like any other article. The glossary item is the title of the article, the content is the description. Nothing new to learn, and the software does the linking automatically without any effort on my part.
No matter how many times I write about a topic and use a particular word, my website will now create a link for that glossary defined word whenever it is shown to the reader.
What’s not to like about that?
