Tips for writing your article

Select a pertinent topic: Opt for a topic that is current and relevant to IT security community. Your opinion piece should add to ongoing discussions or address current issues. Aim for excellence in a specific area rather than mediocrity across a wider range.   

Write a powerful hook: Your first paragraph should grab readers’ attention and clearly present the main point of your article. A convincing hook will encourage readers to read on.

Articulate a clear thesis: Present your primary argument or thesis at the beginning of the article. This clarifies your viewpoint and the perspective you are offering to your readers.   

Support your claims: Strengthen your argument with robust evidence, examples, data, or anecdotes. Be sure to cite your sources and provide references. This adds credibility to your article and aids readers in understanding the basis of your views.

Write concisely and clearly: Given that online readers have limited attention spans, it’s crucial to be succinct and avoid superfluous jargon. Communicate in a straightforward and clear manner to ensure your message is easily comprehensible.

Offer a unique point of view: Opinion pieces stand out when they present new and unique points of view. Avoid repeating common opinions and strive to bring something new to the conversation.

Address counter-arguments: Discuss potential counterarguments to your stance. Showing that you have considered alternative viewpoints enhances the credibility of your argument.

Propose solutions: Offer practical solutions or suggestions related to the issue you’re addressing. This can make your opinion piece more practical and relevant.

Revise and proofread: Carefully review your article to eliminate any grammatical, spelling, or punctuation errors. A well-written and properly revised opinion article is more likely to be taken seriously.
