A Tutorial On Tutorials

I found this fantastic article on writing effective tutorials. The following statement is made in the introduction to the article:

“One of the biggest mistakes you can possibly make is creating a tutorial with the mindset that it will be a quick traffic fix to help increase your traffic or increase your ad revenue. If you write a tutorial with these goals as your primary objective, not only will it likely NOT get accepted, but it will be tremendously obvious that you had no intention of teaching anything when you wrote it. People who write for traffic generally recycle the same content, rush through the tutorial, and basically commit every tutorial error I can think of. If you’re not looking to actually teach something and help people learn, don’t waste your time or ours.”
