comment What style suggestions are common for which words are used in hyperlinks?
I'd +2 this if I could -- both for the SEO observation and for pointing out that as far as reading flow, links are text made to attract attention.

comment Mixing topics in a blog
-1 Doesn't address the question asked. The OP inquired about blogs that cover many different topics vs. those with more narrow focus, not the structure or focus of individual posts.

comment Mixing topics in a blog
@jae Thanks for proving one of my points: that a blog about a broad range of subjects can become uninteresting to people who have an aversion to just one of those subjects.

comment Which Pen Is Best For Writing/Signing Important Documents?
@Ralph That question was off-topic because it was about computing equipment (a printer) which is already covered on Super-User. I can't think of another Stack site that would handle questions about writing instruments in this context.

comment Which Pen Is Best For Writing/Signing Important Documents?
...If @Boris_yo really meant to ask about writing, I'd encourage him to re-submit something worded better. I'd start by clarifying what is menat by "regular pens" as there are rollerballs, ball points, dip pens, fountain pens, felt-tip pens, porous-point pens, and so on available in addition to gel pens. Then, I'd try to find a way to more clearly relate the question to writing and make it more objective, e.g. "How do I keep my longhand drafts/notes as clear as they were when written? Is ball point, gel, or some other type of pen more resilient in the face of age, spills, UV, etc.?"

comment Which Pen Is Best For Writing/Signing Important Documents?
@Ralph Well, pens as writing tools are on topic, but I'm not sure that's being asked here. It seems like it's more financial or legal -- i.e. what is most resistant to tampering -- or possibly scrapbooking -- i.e. what will remain beautiful after years of age and handling.

comment Designing a book
The answer depends a lot on what methods you are most comfortable with. Do you plan to carefully hand-copy the poems in a nice script, then hand-bind and cover it? Do you plan to use a one-off printer like lulu.com? If the latter, are you only comfortable using a word processing program or do you want to go so far as to learn a typesetting system such as TeX or LaTeX?

comment How much time do you spend writing one page on average?
Closed as off-topic: this is a Q&A site, not a place to take surveys. Perhaps you can reformulate your question in a way that doesn't violate the guidelines in our FAQ.

comment Where to look for ESL writers and copyeditors?
I did file the last close vote, because this gets too close to recommending specific services (a shopping question is off-topic). However, I'd enthusiastically re-open if someone wants to edit this to be more about how to evaluate a good editor or something less along the lines of "where/who do I get good editing from"
