Most of us keep a website updated each day, simply by logging onto Facebook and sharing the latest video of a cat attacking a printer. With software such as Church Edit, it is also easy for anyone to put content on a website.
However writing for a website is a lot different to other types of media such as a letter or article. Generally, when writing for a web page it is expected that there would be less content written than if the same subject was going to be created for a printed article.
On the web, people often expect to find the information quickly and don’t necessarily expect to read a long page online. When it is required for a lot of text to be put online then it is sometimes better to have a shorter web page which then links to a full version in a PDF or Word format. If you do have a long web page then you may want to use anchor links to allow people to jump to a certain section on the website.
