So, in the 3 part model we are discussing,

Thanks, Jim.

I wouldn't know which comes first
(or second), but I am certain
they are all important.

I appreciate your comment, Jim.


If people don't believe in you, you wont gain confidence.
usually you gain trust in your copy if your'e telling the truth in what you write, people will eventually know that you write he truth, you gain their trust.
Trust & distrust I believe depends on the honesty & sincerity of a writer.
Anyway thanks for the post

But earning it can be tough.

I think it comes down to:
-Saying things people agree with
-Providing evidence
-Writing in the vernacular.
