@jennwhinnem @ginidietrich Thanks so much! "Intentional" is a great word. "Conscious writing" is another way to think of it: We write so much everyday, it's easy to tune out, but we have to stay engaged. The other side of the coin is that we have to be able to support and justify every decision we make as a writer and editor--both in terms of the tone/style and the grammar. Use the tools that work best for you!

@JuliPeterson Thanks Juli! It's always a struggle to identify who would be part of an unintended audience, but worth remembering the basics: staying positive, task-focused and remembering that, particularly with social media, these comments can live FOREVER.
@3HatsComm Appreciate the response! I agree that the research piece is absolutely critical, both before and after the fact. We don't know what we don't know and even a basic understanding of our success or failure depends on that feedback.
@Nikki Little Appreciate that Nikki! The biggest struggle I have on these day-to-day is trying to squeeze too much information into one message. Bullets not only make the information clearer, they help me to limit myself to only the necessary content for one message.
@Anri Ober Thanks Anri! Writing for an audience is easy to talk about, but much more difficult to do well. Hopefully this gives you some more concrete ways to approach communicating--whatever form it takes.
