    No. The sentences are too short and feels forced together.

    I can't really comment on that.

    I don't like the way the writer puts his sentences together. Feels weird. I like to read nice chunky paragraphs of around 40-60 words, here its a lot of single sentence paragraphs, which are not really connected together. The vocabulary is alright, but some words don't fit. The guy has obviously done a lot of research and spent a lot of time writing. Some parts are very good and well thought out.

    Final thoughts: Good content but could be better with some editing.

    PS: This is my personal opinion, I know people who like their stuff in short and to-the-point sentences. But this is not my cup of tea

    In my opinion content is quite good. Sounds native. Is it written by you ?

    Some popular bloggers seem to be going towards this type of writing more rather than the original chunky, paragraph writing. I personally don't like it as well since I like different paragraphs that contain different topics so that I know which ones to skip and which ones to focus one, while the line ones are a bit hard to follow and don't seem to be as organized.

    The paragraphs looks like they were written separately and then pieced together.

    I like the article though.

    This is the perfect example of an article written by someone who thinks they are a novelist before ever writing a novel. Let me guess...
    • Comes from somewhere where English is not the first language spoken
    • Has an advanced degree in something completely unrelated to writing
    • Did some kind of "writing internship" at the same time
    • Was told by peers that his writing was good and he should do it more
    • He did it more, but never officially learned how to write outside of the fragmented sentences common in fiction
    I didn't want to dig. Let me know how many of those I was correct on, though.

    Yeah I find posts like these hard to follow as well. You don't know what's important and what isn't and after a while you have to force yourself to read through everything. Maybe that was what those popular bloggers were aiming for?

    I'm pretty sure he wrote this article in at least 4 separate sittings.

    Funny how the more complicated you make your language, the less authentic you seem.

    It was a fun read. The backdrop of the site felt bright, perhaps use a slightly darker shade that bodes well with the content of the article. The pictures used were a bit obnoxious in my opinion but I get where it comes from. And finally, the short paragraphs are great but sometimes you might want to use more to really flesh out your points. Cheers.

    Pretty long read. But from what I did read the grammar is very good. I would say it is native or very close. The flow was very easy to read.
