Improve your writing skills with your personal voice. You should always focus on the reader but throw in personal experience and facts. Don’t add a bunch of fluff words, the reader has a goal and it isn’t to meet your word count requirement. The reader wants information, using personal experience with fact helps add a little charm.  Personal experience, especially in common problem areas, helps your reader feel connected to you.

In general stick to valid information and don’t try to fluff your articles for extra words. Get your point across clearly and efficiently without a lot of babble in between. Understand the language you are trying to write your article in. You should also have a clear concept of verbs, nouns, and adjectives. And write in a tone using words most people understand.
