When we started Mahalo we had a goal to write a very short guide note. However, now that we’ve blasted past our first two goals in terms of number of pages in Mahalo (10,000 and 25,000), we’ve been going back and experimenting with longer Guide Notes.
These note are not in Wikipedia or About format (i.e. 5-20 pages of content in Wikipedia’s typical fashion or 2-5 paragraphs in About.com fashion). Nope, they are more bullet point style so folks can scan or hunt and peck for information quickly.
I’m a big fan of scanable text on the Internet because the truth is folks don’t read on the web (most of the time).
What do you think of the “tax rebate” page?
What do you think of us doing more content?
