Improve writing skill with blogging
Writing can be daunting. However, the best way to improve is to get a pen and paper or sit in front of your computer and actually write. What I mean here is that the best way to improve writing skills is by writing a blog. My recommended sites for posting your blog are blogger.com and medium.com. How writing blogs can improve writing skills?
1. You’ll get into the habit of writing regularly
The best way to get better at anything is to practice. We’ve covered ways to write every day before, and this really is a good habit to establish if you have serious writing ambitions. Blog posts can be a short or long story and can be online as soon as you’ve written them. These habits will make you be perfect in writing.
2. Instant feedback lets you know how you’re doing
If you are writing purely for yourself, you don’t need feedback. Most of us, though, feel that a piece of writing is not complete until it has a reader. One of the best things about blogging is that not only is publishing instantly, feedback is too. As soon as your piece is posted, readers will start adding their comments. You’ll know when your writing is good because you’ll get positive responses. Negative feedback will tip you off that your style might need work, or that the content of your piece may be boring, trite or over-done.
3. Having readers for your work is a big motivation
Sometimes you just aren’t “in the mood” to write. When you’re feeling motivated, though, the words come easily. Knowing that real people are reading what you write is a huge boost. Something you can only appreciate once you’ve experienced it. Even on days when you’re feeling less than inspired, the thought of your readers can be enough to get you writing.
4. Blogs are an ideal medium for experimentation
Sometimes, you might want to try out a new style or form of writing. Writing a whole story, article or even a book in a new style could be a big risk when it doesn’t work. A blog post, on the other hand, is quick to write and free to publish. If it fails, you’ve not lost much. Blogging gives you the freedom to experiment, to try out something new.
