One more thing I would like to add is this hyperlinks of resources in the content! yes, that would be great to give the reader many options and allow them to understand every terminology or word that you are using in your post/document/tutorial. but have you ever considered how confusing would that be? it makes the reader very curious to read about that word first, then you put the reader in an infinite loop going backward and forward till to the end of the document! to me, it's very frustrating! maybe it's just me! what you did at the end of this post would work very better for me! However, this could be a personal opinion and you can ignore this! :D

Adding links for words or terminology comes from me. When I was trained in scientific writing for my thesis and reports back when I was in University.

I do my best to keep it at a minimum level. I think it is better to give my own context as you go along in the article as I don't assume that you will read references.

Which I myself hardly do that for articles I read.
