      This is cool and you have a great writing style, but the big blocks of text are a little overwhelming. To your average reader, looking at this on a phone, those paragraphs will be as off-putting as a large pile of dishes big_smile

      Don't use &. Replace with 'and'.

      Make sure your subtitles include key words and phrases. It helps get traffic.

      In the UK we call them 'worktops', but in the US they call them 'counters', so mix it up a little.

      Read the text out loud. Your brain works differently when doing this and you'll be able to pick up some awkward phrasing. Like this:

      "Once you know you have a nice flat surface it is time to mop, my ideal mop to use in this habit is a steam mop, just because they are slightly less fiddly & virtually clean your floor completely, leaving it fresh & instantly dry."

      My suggestion:

      Once your floor is clean of debris, it's time to mop. I use a steam mop because it is less fiddly than a regular one. It cleans the floor thoroughly, leaving it fresh and dry.

      You don't need all those adjectives smile I'd work through the text, deleting adjectives like a crazy, adjective-deleting thing. More words doesn't mean you have a better piece of writing.

      Remove the text in the source box of your images. Either cite a legitimate source, or don't. If they are yours, you could put your name in instead. Or not. If they are not yours, make sure you are not violating someone's copyright.

      Good luck. I'm sure you'll get it through with a little cleaning up big_smile

    Wow! That is some seriously helpful feedback thank you! I am still in the process of learning how to write effectively, so I will take any advice given on board.

    I will go through my article now and get deleting adjectives, this is clearly something I need to work on.

    Thank you for you advice, I really appreciate it. smile
