Connecting Ideas and Thoughts With Coherence

Writing a good article requires you to connect well with the readers. In case of blogs, this is especially true since they represent more or less colloquial use of language. It is hence very important to connect your thoughts and sentences well without overlapping or interleaving thoughts which go someplace else.

When you write a paragraph, there are often ideas that have relationships with the ones that precede them. Such ideas have to be interconnected with transitional tags. Here are the various connectives you can use for various requirements.

Adding ideasUse: and, also, in addition, again, and then, besides, further, furthermore, in the first place, moreover, still, too
ComparisonUse: also, likewise, in the same way, similarly, exactly
ContrastUse: although, however, nevertheless, notwithstanding, yet, at the same time, in spite of that, despite, even so, even though, for all that, in contrast, instead, on the contrary, on the other hand, otherwise, regardless, still, though
EmphasisUse: Certainly, definitely, terribly, indeed, in fact, of course
Exemplification or ConclusionUse: for example, for instance, in short, it is true, of course, namely, specifically, to illustrate, thus, truly, all in all, altogether, as has been said, finally, in brief, in conclusion, in other words, in particular, in simpler terms, in summary, on the whole, that is, therefore, to put it differently, to summarize
ConcessionUse: granted, of course, naturally, obviously
