As a new blogger you might be hesitant to publish content. To be a good blogger, you do not have to be a writer, but you do have to create content which is grammatically correct and easy to understand.
A well-written post can elevate the quality of your overall blog, increase comments, and encourage repeat visitors. As much as someone loves your content/brand, if there is nothing engaging on the page there’s no personal connection, or incentive to visit again.
Well-written posts can separate a mediocre blog from an exceptional one. Ready to start dazzling with your words? Here are some of my top tips for improving the quality of your writing.
- Read your blog posts out loud before hitting publish:
I can almost guarantee that you’ll catch more mistakes, and improve your writing if you start reading it aloud.
- Read varied blogs:
So many of us get caught up in reading blogs that only relate to our industry, this makes it almost impossible to create unique original content. Go on a tech-blog for a few days and explore the World Wide Web. There are some amazing writers out there.
- Have a goal in mind for your posts:
You need to present more than pictures. Is the goal of your blog or post to educate, inspire, humor, or something else?
- Read – a lot
This is sort of an extension of point #2 but goes even deeper. If you really want to be a better writer, you need to read a wide variety of work. I would suggest; autobiographies, self-help books, research papers, and even novels. As long as you are exposing yourself to different topics your writing will improve substantially.
- Create white space in your life:
This one is the hardest. Sometimes we get so excited about our blogs that we spend way too much time online. Best writing comes after a few days of stepping away and taking a break.
So many people believe that writing is a natural talent, you are either born with it or you are not. However, writing can also be a learned skill. The daily discipline paired with the steps described will guaranteed improve your writing and in turn your blog.
