The custom of having a description or introduction is necessary to start the article. It sets up the discussion. The first paragraph needs to be catchy and interesting so that it grabs the attention of the readers.
The body of the article needs to be divided into sections. Each section should have a topic sentence which states the main idea of the paragraph and is fplowed by details that support the main idea.
A conclusion only includes an overall summary of what you wrote in the body of the article. A conclusion can also include an opinion about how well your article supports your thesis statement.

Organizing Paragraphs in an Essay
Within each paragraph, you need to organize your thoughts. You can organize paragraphs into three main types of sentences:
Topic Sentences – These are sentences that state your main idea. Topic sentences are usually at or near the beginning of a paragraph and restates the main idea of the paragraph. Examples of topic sentences are “ At Drift, we specialize in helping companies with email marketing” and “GitLab is a leader in continuous integration and delivery”. Supporting Sentences – These sentences provide specific examples related to the topic sentence. They offer more information about the topic sentence. Examples of supporting sentences are “We have helped thousands of startups with their marketing strategy” and “GitLab has over 100 employees as of 2017”. Reasoning/Supporting Sentences – These sentences explain why something is true or offer evidence for what you write about. They are used when there are two sides to an argument or when one side should be accepted over the other. These sentences are discussed more in the next section. Examples of reasoning sentences are “We use our own platform because it is the best way to manage customers” and “One reason why GitLab is better than Drift is because they have better features”.
The above list is not exhaustive, but you should try to make the majority of your sentences in your article either topic sentences or supporting sentences. Reasoning or supporting sentences should only be used when there are two sides to an argument or when one side should be accepted over the other. If you do not understand this concept, then read this article on creating a thesis statement before continuing with this article on how to write an article.
Creating a Thesis Statement for an Essay
A thesis statement gives the reader a preview of what you are going to write about in your article. It answers the question. my article about? In order for your article to communicate clearly, it needs to be about one main idea. Thus, the purpose of a thesis statement is to give the readers enough information about what is going to be written in your article. A common mistake students make is to have too many ideas in one article. As a result, they cannot communicate clearly because they do not have enough time to develop a single idea. For example, imagine someone asked you “a good restaurant?” You might respond with “There are several good restaurants in New York City” or “I like eating at Chipotle”. However, if you tpd someone that you wanted to go to a good restaurant in New York City, they know exactly where you want to eat and they can take you there. In contrast, if you tpd someone that you wanted to go to a good restaurant in New York City and stated that there were several good restaurants in New York City, then it would be harder for them to help you because you did not narrow down your options and you did not give any specific recommendations. So, a thesis statement helps guide your thoughts and helps focus on one point instead of several points. Thus, your audience knows exactly what you are talking about and does not get distracted by other ideas because of your thesis statement. For example, imagine that you are writing an article about why Drift is better than GitLab (remember this from our outline. Your thesis statement could be “Drift is better than GitLab because it has more features” or “Drift is better than GitLab because it has more customers” or “Drift is better than GitLab because it costs less” etc.. In this case, we have narrowed down our options on what we are going to compare—we will compare features, customers, and costs for both Drift and Gitlab. We know that we will only need 3-4 reasons for our article because we only want to compare 3-4 items and this allows us to focus on individual points instead of multiple points.
As a result, our thesis statement becomes very clear. We are writing an article comparing features, customers, and costs between Drift and GitLab. Now that we have our thesis statement, we can create an outline that guides us throughout our article writing process. Our outline will include details about each section (examples will be given later. However, it would not make sense to write an outline or thesis statement until we have already done some research on Drift and GitLab (in order words, it would be hard to come up with a precise thesis statement without doing some research. So let’s start researching now!
