How would you evaluate the quality of this article?

Flows well?

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

Sounds native?

I can't really comment on that.

Anything else you'd like to add?

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

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.

on a side note: I'd hire him
I like this style.
 
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.
