How to BE a Good Blog Writer?
Have you ever thought about how to be a good blog writer?
There is a train of thought – that you are either a good blog writer, or a not so good blog writer. But I happen to believe, anyone can be a good blog writer. It just takes some practice, determination and a willingness to learn.
How to be a good blog writer all of the time…
‘READ before you WRITE‘ – Taking time to read other kinds of content (before you even consider putting pen to paper), is a great way to get your brain cells working.
The more we read, the better we will become. Not just in our writing, but in everything we do. There is a lot to be said for a well-read person. I remember my college tutor telling me that, 15 years ago – I didn’t believe him at the time, but he was right.
Reading is a great way to spark new ideas, learn new things, hear different writing styles and find out what we like. Spending 30-60 minutes doing this, right before you write your blog post, is a great way to learn how to be a good blog writer.
Delivering value in every sentence
This one is not easy. Whilst all bloggers, wanting to know how to be a better blog writer will try to offer value to their readers regularly, it really is hard to do that in every sentence. Having said that, it is a good goal to strive for, and it sure makes you think about the words you choose to write on your blog. Give it a go!
