project work checklist

REMINDERS: content

re: content text
  • all content is unique and original
    (i.e. not a translated/transcribed version of someone else's publication)
  • all content written and edited by you
    (small parts of the content can be quoted from external sources but your own original content must outweigh their proportion in each post/page substantially)

TIP: a good post starts with a short introductory paragraph, followed by the main copy and media.

re: sourced content
  • confirm the permission of use, either via open license or under certain conditions
  • always cite the appropriate references for all quoted sources
  • provide references and links as required by the license of the material used

  • optimised for web specifically
    (small parts of the content can be quoted from external sources but your own original content must outweigh their proportion in each post/page substantially)

TIP: photos are best saved as JPG (not PNG) for smaller file size = faster loading.
