Absorb Better Writing and Get Better at Writing

If you don’t know what great writing is, you can’t be better at it. What you should read depends on what kind of blog you have and what kind of audience you serve. Educational blogs have very formal writing style on the other hand entertainment blog have informal and casual writing style.

So read industry leading blogs which are relevant to your blog, learn what makes them great, absorb their writing style and come with your own. Reading increases your vocabulary, memory and imagination which help to get better at writing.

Copy Great Writers But Be Original

Let them be your inspiration copy what they do to increase their audience engagement, what makes it appealing, shareable et cetera. Your audience don’t want to read another copy of Wikipedia, so don’t just copy and paste from the internet. Your audience visits your blog to read unique which has your personality.

We have been learning the same way. It is just like learning 2+2 = 4 but at the end of the day we learn 3+1 = 4, isn’t it?

Just Be Yourself

We all have different personalities, so just be yourself.  Find out writing styles which reflects your personality merge it with different elements and form your own.

Rules Are Meant To Be Broken

To get better at writing, we follow the rules and regulation but if your content makes sense forget grammar, writing practices and principals. If you want to differentiate yourself from crowd you have to break the barriers and come up with unique writing style.

Practice, Practice, Practice

We all know “Practice makes man perfect”.  By setting daily goals and tracking our progress can improve our writing. Write in a distraction free environment to keep the writing juice flowing.

Be Consistent

You have to be consistent in terms of your writing style, posting articles and practice to retain your audience. Few changes in writing style will not impact your audience retention rate but don’t change it drastically.

Edit, Edit and Edit 

Editing or proofreading is an essential part of writing. We must edit our articles to cut down unwanted phrases, words, and sentences. When we write for web, we have to be concise. We have very short span to grab reader’s attention and keep them going. If they find our writing repetitive they will eventually leave the site.

Many writers do editing after three to four days because it helps them to eliminate the errors and make necessary correction in sentence formation and outline.

I am not a perfect writer and I will never going to be. I try various things to improve my writing. This is one of the way many writers follow to write their articles. I have written this article by the method.

    Hi Yogesh

    I do agree that writing needs consistency and practice. The best writers aren’t does who just write for the sake of writing but whose can inspire their audience. This has noting to do with grammar but more of speaking to your audience in a way that your content resonates with them.

    Thanks for sharing. Take Care

    • Hey Ikechi,

      I like your writing style because you have a conversational tone and I think that’s wonderful way to make it digestible. Writing is not an easy task we have to brainstorm with ideas and it also depends on what we are writing. Writing a blog post is different from writing a comment and that’s why we should focus on what’s our goal to write.

      Thanks Ikechi 🙂
