How to Solve the Biggest Problems with Information Overload

It seems like an undemanding dream for most writers to being able to write quality content more and more. And it’s not about the topic of writing, it’s about the way content is written.

Information overload is often glossed over to the side since writers focus on keeping their articles honest, 100% original, and reader-friendly. And ever since I’ve begun writing about products, technologies, processes, etc. in different industries, I’ve come to realize that Information Overload ruined my content quality and transformed it into a mundane description with no creativity or personality. It can destroy some of your best ideas and distract readers into believing that you’ve just aimlessly typed down the key points of your article with no style whatsoever. No writer wants that.

What can you do?

It’s time we solved the biggest problems with Information Overload in content writing. And I’m here to show you how you can tackle them efficiently and productively.

ALIGN YOUR PRIMARY SUBJECT

There are a variety of different things you want to write about and the best way to combine 2-3 different ideas is by clearing defining the ‘why’ before you allow readers to jump to conclusions with your article. You want them to know what those ideas are and how they’re related to each other. Even if you write about multiple ideas in one single article- let’s say it’s a 1000 word article- your content HAS to be centered towards a single primary subject. That way your readers know what they’re reading about without getting too confused with the information you present to them and you write more transparently.

FOCUS ON NOT MORE THAN 3 FACTS/FEATURES/FIGURES FOR YOUR PARAGRAPH

To write better, focus more on the rhythm of your writing and less on broadcasting all the essential facts or features in the first paragraph. Distribute your content like you would paint on a canvas because it has to look meaningful and it has to rouse some response in the mind of the reader.

KEEP SOME RELATED ARTICLES OPEN FOR REFERENCE

Just for experimenting sakes, open some articles published on other websites about the primary subject that you’re writing about. You never know you might get some insightful phrase or word to present yours more efficiently and creatively. Allowing yourself to get acquainted with other similarly fashioned articles is a good practice to writing with more confidence and awareness. Your writing should be responsive and the only way you can make it is by staying vigilant and tuned-in.

DON’T OVERDO ELABORATION

Information Overload just doesn’t mean too much information, it can also mean too much repetition of the same subject matter over and over again. When you’re writing facts, it can get difficult to twist and turn sentences to make it look less crowded, but if you’re current on the way talented writers curate fresh articles based on researched facts and figures, you’d be surprised at how their content is well-defined and seasoned for most readers. Elaborated content can be boring and that’s why we call it ‘redundant’. The best solution here to research more about your primary subject to find some interesting loopholes that you can experiment with to make your article look more interesting and up-to-date.
