As I discussed in a recent post on this subject, flabby writing can adversely affect our engaging content. For so long I had no idea that was a fault of mine. Blogging here at Wealthy Affiliate and on my three websites, allowed me opportunities to step back and analyze my writing skills.

(Here is the link to that post: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/funkydunc208/blog/...)

This training is going to analyse 100 commonly used phrases, why they are flabby and what to say instead.

Think About This -

Which of these body shapes do we men dream of having? Is it Picture #1,

Or is it Picture #2,


Right now, I am somewhere in between, and I have to work to maintain my health and fitness. Editing our copy takes work so that it is readable, engaging and authoritative.

So let's go. The next four pages will list 100 flabby phrases in alphabetical order. Your favorite may be among them.

Thank you for pointing it out I can see that these are all everyday mistakes that we make without realizing it.

Great post Duncan. You never know what words and phrases can be cut until you look at them.
