    Very interesting! I'd neglected one "rule" I learned (because it applies specifically to web content and sales letters) that the reading level should be 6th grade, and all words/sentences/paragraphs should be short, punchy, and to-the-damn-point.

    Again, that depends on the audience, and it's a very interesting thing to see that others look for the opposite.

    Content that engages readers and keeps them reading from start to finish.

    Ha, I was always told the same thing. It's cool to get others opinions on this too. I guess it depends on the audience you are going for. My sales writing is a lot different than my sales writing for my other site because it's two different types of customers.

    Exactly my point! The language and tone (includes how short/long the words and readability are) should be totally different based on the target audience. That being said, I do tend to keep it short, sweet, and simple for almost any audience on the web just because I'm catering to that shorter attention span. Curious about the "defense" (not really the word I'm looking for...) about using longer sentences and words.
