A solid body you can trust upon

I've seen a lot of posts about self-help lately in this beautiful platform, which I consider something remarkably good, with everyone sharing their own perspectives and their journey to become better, giving advice to others who might be struggling with the same things they did and making the world a better place with It. However, I know that everyone's trying to become better via getting income through their writing and that maybe some people might be struggling with getting their thoughts into a written body of work. That's why in this article I'll talk about the structure and some tips about how to write not only self-help articles though articles in general based in my experience, all so you can influence others positively and become more proficient with your output as an author. Let's begin with the structure:

Introduction

As you've seen in the first part of this article, anything that you write has to have Its reason to be, a clearly outlined why that can interest the viewer enough to keep reading. It is in your introduction that you give a general view of the situation you're trying to make an improvement upon, talking about the damage It is causing and giving your perspective. At the end of this part you should give a summary of what you're going to explain and the effect you want to create in the person that reads the article when they finish consuming the content.

Explanations - Meaning

It is here that you give further detail as to what exact term you're trying to explain is or why a particular event is happening. In here you not only write about the definition of a problem though the reasons of why It has become so prominent, making your fair deal of research all so you can give a precise and objective response while trying to make It as digestable for the reader as you can. In this way you'll make them understand concepts that they might not have known before or that they might have misunderstood in the past, clearing the path for giving advice in the next part.

Advices

In this part you give the specific advices you advertise in the article, either setting them up as a bullet list that you explain after mentioning each tip/strategy or just writing It in a straightforward manner, putting each piece of advice as a subtitle and then expanding upon It in a paragraph. You can write as many points as you want, however, I like to keep It at a good balance of quality/quantity, so I stick to the rule of threes, a device used in writing which suggests that the use of three entities is much more satisfying, entertaining or effective than any other number. In this way I don't saturate the viewer with information and at the same I create a good amount of challenge for myself (Which is a great thing).

Farewell/Conclussion

If you read my articles, you'll notice that this is mostly the part where I put "I hope...". This is because in here you give your final thoughts upon the subject and you expect that you could have given something of value to the person that's reading with your writing, concluding on all the points explained previously and even giving some words of encouragement that can keep them in the right track.

As you might've expected, I hope that this article could have been of use to you, providing you with the core structure of my process of writing which I think It still has some room for improvement though It has been functional to this date; and also giving you a template you can use whenever you want to put some information into read.cash, Encouraging you to put some information out to the world that can have a positive impact. Thanks for your support and good luck!
