    Ratio of

    information
  • 3. The 1-1-7 rule
    Only one main idea per slide
    Insert only seven lines of text maximum.

    to communicate.
  • 5. Blogs are like sharks
    A shark must keep moving or die.
    A blog must be regularly updated or it too will die
    How often should you update your blog?
    Some successful blogs are updated once a week, others several times a day.
    The key is to be consistent.
