Use a Cheeseburger to Write an Article, Lens, Hub, or Knol!

Hi Warriors!

Here’s a great article writing tip that my 4th grade son is using to learn how to write essays (and it applies to articles, lenses, hubs, and knols perfectly):

Write your article like you’re building a cheeseburger, with the “buns” being 2-3 sentences each and the tomato, lettuce, and cheese being a paragraph – about 4-5 sentences each.

Top Bun – introduction to the topic of about 2-3 sentences. An overview.
Tomato – Point #1
Lettuce – Point #2
Cheese – Point #3
BEEF - Point #4
Bottom Bun – A summarization of what they just read, reiterating the three above points.

So lets look at an example:

Top Bun – an introduction about how marketers can make money online using Squidoo in four ways.

Tomato – Co-op revenue; using modules to make money in a shared state with Squidoo

Lettuce – Affiliate sales you can make with text and image links on Squidoo

Cheese - Direct Sales you can make promoting freelance services or info products that you own.

[b]BEEF[/] – Lens flipping, which is allowed

Bottom Bun – anyone can use these four methods free of charge to make money on Squidoo

If you use the cheeseburger as your outline template, it helps – especially for those who sit and struggle in front of the screen not knowing how to properly organize an article’s content.

If you're using this strategy on a lens, hub, or knol, just make each one its own individual module and lengthen it a bit from what an article would be!

    You're making me hungry Tiffany! Good concept though, I like it - makes it easy to come up with a solid article without wondering what to say.

      Excellent concept. A perfect example of the K.I.S.S. principle in action. This is very helpful.

      Thanks,

    It's all between the ears...oops in the buns.

    Talk about a simple outline this is it. Now all I have to do is get my mind off lunch and go write some more articles.

    ROTFL!! I forgot the beef. Okay, point 4 - Beef - Oh how funny.

    Maybe it was for a vegetarian.

    I was on my 1st cup of coffee, y'all!

      And for those longer articles....

      Two all-beef patties
      Special sauce
      Lettuce
      Cheese
      Pickles
      Onions
      On a sesame seed bun

        Hey Tiff,

        Lots of people learn better using images and this is a good illustration
        of that (excuse the pun)....

        Often we get bogged down with a project/article/report
        but when you break it down to manageable bite sizes, it's easy
        to do...

        Regards

        Greg

      Hi Tiff,

      You make my mouth water.:p) But I miss the starter, the dessert, the wine and the black coffee.

      Great aid for writing anyway.

      Cheers,

      Sandor
