Quality Beyond 300 Words Contest
The concept of not less than 300 words has affected a lot of users who thought once they have written an article that is worth 300 words, they are good to go, unfortunately, that's not it, it makes many lazy. I have seen many articles that looks as if it was checked numerous times to push it to hit 300 words. Have you made a word count for an article before and realized it's exactly 300 or 301 words?
For instance, you can't write about the Blockchain in 300 words, No! It can't be quality enough, there are a lot of things that would be missing out and in some cases, the introduction and conclusion make up the 300 words for some articles. Let's step up the game, words can be improved with quality. And for the week, we are looking beyond 300 words.
About the Contest
