Hi Duncan, That's right. The more prominent the words appear in your Wordle graphic, the more often they're used in your text. It's a great way to make sure you're hitting your keywords if you're writing for SEO - or the right keywords. It's great for any writer though as it reveals when you've used a word too often.

If you wait for something to be perfect, you'll never get ANY content out there. I also think Pulizzi was saying to take some risks. Allow yourself to be imperfect. You never know what might happen. Thanks for your comment. That point resonated with me specifically because I always have a nagging feeling my stuff would be better if I just had more time. If I had all the time in the world, I'd probably never get anything out the door. "
