When I first started out in the blog world, I used to think that I lack good writing technique. But I soon resolved this problem and it was very easy to do so. I was really concerned about my spelling, my grammar and style of writing in paragraphs.
For each of my blog post I try my very best to write over 400 words. 400 words may seem like too much but when you enjoy writing, 400 words is like nothing to write within a couple of minutes. I do this be using an introduction (state what the article is about), the body (which gives full information of the article) and then the conclusion (which would be a group discussion) to have my readers/ visitors engaging in a discussion. If you lack good writing skills this article was dedicated to help you develop an excellent writing skill.
How To Become A Great Writer
Becoming a great writer is one of the easiest thing when blogging. When I started, I normally read lots of articles on other blogs to see their style of writing. These bloggers write in paragraphs. Short sentences with great key points. This was not hard to do.
The best way to develop a great writing style is observe great writers, analyze their writing style, how their sentences are being structured and how they move around a particular subject with ease. Read different articles written by different authors and analyze their writing skills. By doing this, you will begin to acquire a unique and natural writing style of your own.
You must maintain different types of writing skills for different kinds of readers. When you start writing keep in mind your potential readers. For example, writing for children is quite different from writing for an adult. If you improve your writing style people will start recognizing your efforts, which will make your articles more popular among your readers.
Tips For Good Writing Skills
In order to be a great writer, the first thing that you have to do is read. Without reading then you can’t write, that’s why it is important to do it. Do lots of reading to gain some knowledge. Read different articles from different authors to see their style of writing. Read different types of books, novels and magazines to see the style of writing.
If you want to develop good writing skills, you’re going to have to write something at some point. Plan what you want to write about and then make a sketch of it. Read it back to yourself or someone and see where necessary adjustments are needed.
I normally think up of a title and base my article on the title.
If you think you have done a very good job on writing an article no doubt you would like to share it with others. Ask kindly of your readers to give a feed back on what you have written. You their feedbacks and make necessary adjustments to your article.
When writing, always make sure that your readers understand what you wrote and gain some knowledge out of what was written. Write in short paragraphs and make sure every sentence brings across a point. Reason for writing in short paragraphs is because most readers skim through articles and don’t read the whole thing. Use correct punctuations where necessary.
I hope these tips have helped you to become a better writer. 🙂
