Hello Menlo

“Members of the Garden Club harvest produce amidst the giant sunflowers and cornstocks.”

Test Page

The opening paragraph is your introduction to what people will find on your page or site. It can be a very short phrase (1-5 words) or longer, but try to keep it under 40 words.

The appropriate number of words on a page depends on its purpose and audience. If it is one of your main landing pages, it should be short (100-250 words), and paired with images and stories. 

Pages deeper in the site that provide details can be up to 500 words. If you have a very text-heavy, informational page, use friendly headers to guide readers all the way to the bottom—or consider breaking the information out onto additional pages.

Headers (like this one)

Heavy blocks of text are hard to read. And important facts can get lost along the way. Along with short paragraphs, headings help web readers find their place and absorb information more quickly. As a general rule, there ought to be a heading for every 125 or so words. As you can see from this page, using them more often works too.
