Customize Invitation Card Content

Customize Invitation Card Content by Prashant V Shrivastava
Be it a small birthday party or a lifetime event like engagement or wedding, the invitation cards always mean a lot to us.

Generally, cards are chosen from available designs with the designer. All the hard work to find a suitable and pretty unique invitation card ends with a card design. But, the card also has invitation text. And for that, we just provide some raw invitation and occasion details and the printing studio uses those ages old and pretty generalized invitation text to wind up the task.

The purpose of an invitation card is to have some content that the recipient can appreciate and like. and we do not pay any attention to that very reason of an invitation card.

Now, there are many online content services available where you can get customized content for your special day invitation card. Customized invitation text not only highlights your personality and character better, it also makes the card really look different and unique.

Why Creative Writing is fun?

Creative Writing is a sheer fun simply because it lets you pour your feelings and expressions out without any rules or regulations. The only rule of thumb is that is should make sense. There are people who would ask you to follow the rules and ensure that all your work is in sync with the rest of the work written elsewhere. Such well-wishers are good but not for you. They are actually people who are not creative at all. A creative person will not need suggestions from others. A creative person rather will draft their own way and then create the history.

You do not need to aim to create history first up. You just need to be expressive and write what your brain dictates. Never worry about spelling mistakes or styles or punctuations for that matter. As they say, write drunk and edit sober, so you always have the opportunity to come back to make it better.

Now, editing does not mean you follow standards set by others. All you need to ensure in Creative Writing is that the grammar is okay and sentences make sense.

Content Development Life Cycle

Content Development Life Cycle by Prashant V Shrivastava
Content Development Life Cycle is a systematic approach towards making an idea readable in easy and powerful words.

Microsoft Manual of Style

The Microsoft Manual of Style is a reference guide for technical writers, technical editors, and content managers. Primarily the Microsoft Manual of Style is written and used to write content pertaining to Microsoft products but this guide is so well written and easy to grasp, it has been adopted by a large number of companies as a technical writing standard guide. Microsoft Manual of Style (Microsoft Manual of Style) presents a detailed guide to clear definitions and concepts with screenshots. The MSTP has been released in several versions since its first release in the year 1995. The latest Microsoft Manual of Style edition is the fourth edition according to Wikipedia. The last version was published in the year 2012.

The Microsoft Manual of Style sets standards for all the writers so that everyone writes the content in the same way. The content written without following the MSTP is not incorrect but it's just not Microsoft Style. And now, since MSTP is used and referenced by many organizations to keep the tone and usage of terms in sync with each other, it is being accepted as a general standard.

For a technical writer, the knowledge of Microsoft Manual of Style standards is always a plus point. If you are aware of MSTP, you know a lot about consistency and many technical writing principles. The knowledge of MSTP becomes all the more important when we know that most of the computers are loaded with Windows Operating Systems and then applications are generally written to be run on Microsoft Personal Computers and devices.

Some organizations use their in-house style guides but if you are aware of Microsoft Manual of Style, you would be knowing most of the style guides without even seeing them. The popularity of the MSTP is one of the main reasons why technical writers prefer MSTP over other style guides developed and maintained by other publishers.

Significance of great content

Significance of great content by Prashant V Shrivastava
Content acts as a tool between your product and its targeted customers. A well-written content while expedites the sale of a product, poorly written articles leaves the potential buyer in a fix and buyers generally skip a product which does not appeal them in the first view.
