Format: Kindle Edition
I was lucky enough to get a review copy of Will's book and, even though I wasn't sure what to expect initially, I was totally blown away by the amount of useful content inside.

If you write a blog, copy, ebooks, edit or do anything that combines writing and the internet then this book will change the way you work. For real. No more emailing Microsoft Word documents back and forth, no more dodgy formatting, no more WYSIWYG pain. One of the best surprises of this book is that it highlighted all the ways in which my current writing tools are making life more difficult and made me aware of better options I didn't even know existed.

I started reading with the idea that things like version control and markdown were for "technical people" (i.e. not me) and really had no idea what it was all about or why it would be relevant to me as a writer. Will is really good at translating technical subjects into easy-to-understand terms and explaining how the suggestions he offers can be useful to writers and editors.

This book gives you the suggestions and tools you need to focus on what really matters: quality content without the hassle. I've already implemented some of his ideas and I know that the tools and advice in this book are going to make writing and editing my next book a whole lot easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars A useful book for writers everywhere 28 Aug. 2013
By Casey Hynes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
*Disclosure: Will is a good friend of mine, and I edited this book. But this review is genuine, and I strongly recommend Writing for the Web.*

As a writer, I'm all too familiar with how easy it is to get stuck in clunky writing and collaboration workflows. For years, I wasted hours of my life struggling through Word's quirks, emailing documents back and forth with clients and later searching around for the most up-to date document covered in confusing track changes notes.

Writing for the Web offers a way out of that chaos, and shows writers tools to streamline their workflows and make their writing processes easier and more enjoyable. Will provides practical examples and resources for how to be a more efficient, productive and professional writer, and I have benefitted a great deal from the advice in this book.

Most importantly, Will doesn't just give a one-size-fits-all workflow or quick fix solutions. He prompts writers to reflect on their processes and what works best for them, emphasizing that this will vary from person to person. And he encourages them to think philosophically about their work and to take pride in it.

The book is a short but powerful read, and will be useful to anyone who writes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and straight-forward 26 Sept. 2013
By Kailyn F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For someone who didn't even realize she had a problem with writing online, this guide was completely helpful and so easy to use. I had always gotten so frustrated with Word but had no idea that there were alternatives.

Moyer's writing style is both conversational and succinct. The writing tips are straightforward and easy to follow for someone who isn't necessarily at the height of technological knowledge.

I also love how he includes real-life tools and websites that you can use to help develop your writing online.

This book is for ANYBODY who ever writes anything online. You can read and understand it in one sitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars I read this book like I was starving – twice 16 Dec. 2013
By Cheryl H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I didn't know how much I wanted to read Will Moyer's book until I read it, and then I swallowed it whole, twice in a matter of days. As a freelance proofreader who studied proofreading and worked freelance twenty years ago in the times of hard copy and red pencils, I've been working recently in Microsoft Word. Using the track changes feature and emailing document versions back and forth is a clunky system at best. I've felt somewhat frustrated with the process, but I believed Word was the most up-to-date, widely used, and best editing and proofreading option presently available – until I read this book. The amount of information and number of web-writing tools it contains is almost overwhelming, but I feel renewed excitement about writing, editing, proofreading, blogging, collaborating, journaling, list-making, and the daily possibilities for working in simple, plain text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Helpful for a Tech n00b 26 Sept. 2013
By Phil Crimmins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Like most people who went through public school and university, Microsoft Word was the only thing that was offered to me for writing papers for class. After reading this book, It is clear to me how inefficient this is in the real world. The book explains really well how to write *without* Word and in a way that is personal to you. Also, it taught me about Markdown in a very understandable way. I had heard of Markdown before but never looked into it and this book really helped me understand it.

I'd highly recommend this book for anyone who does creative work on the internet. Even if you are not primarily a writer, you'll inevitably end up writing something, and there are way better options than Microsoft Word.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rational for Not Using Word 5 Jan. 2014
By David F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've often struggled with formatting within Word and now I understand what's going on.

Ages ago I used Word Perfect which allowed the user to enable format viewing; one could see and edit the embedded codes that affected formatting. Whenever weird stuff happened I'd turn that on, could then see how things had gotten twisted up and could easily untangle the mess.

No such luck with Word.

The author makes the consequences of invisible, embedded format codes clear and offers a viable alternative. I found it well worth the read.
