How Your Blog is Going to Make You a Better Writer

by Maddie Klein

Every blogger wants to build a successful blog. We all want to write better. In the world of digitalization, writing a powerful blog makes all the difference. Always remember, writing and marketing are the two main aspects of blogging. In this post, we’re going to discuss how to become a better writer with your blog.

Write Regularly: Once you start your own blog, you obviously need to practice writing. We all know that one can’t try to scale Mount Everest without climbing up a small hill and writing is no different task. Your words can’t pour out magically. The adage “Practice Makes Perfect” holds true here. Well, no one is perfect, but the more you practice, the better you’ll get with time. Consistency is the key. Writing every day for your blog will boost your creative abilities.

Edit Your Blog Posts: Stop considering yourself as a ‘one-draft wonder’. Everyone needs to edit their work to improve it. Believe it or not, professional writers always edit their work before making a final copy. To become a better writer, you need to refine your skills and find ways to improve professionally.

Use a Natural Tone: You may think that professional writers use the most complicated phrases, but it’s not true at all. Your write-ups must stand out because of your underlying message and simple sentence structure. It is imperative to read what you’ve written. Are you following the same style for writing like you talk? If not, you need to be clear and consistent. It is your blog that communicates with your readers. So, don’t shut them out! Simply talk. Each and every sentence must look natural.

Choose Action: Many people who consider themselves as writers are just thinkers. They focus on their amazing ideas and almost never write them. Writing your amazing ideas helps you see if they are fine to share with readers. If you love your ideas, then write about it. When you choose to turn your ideas into writing, you become a better writer.

Write Concisely: Don’t write what you assume. It is imperative to make your paragraphs concise. Understand the importance of efficient writing. Avoid verbal clutter. Keep in mind that a higher word count doesn’t make great writing.

Take Your Time: You are a writer, so take your time. Writing in a hurry is of no use. Try to gather amazing ideas and express them in great words.

Use Too Much Information Efficiently: Too much information in one sentence doesn’t look good. If you have too much information to share, dole it out in simple sentences. It is imperative to break sentences into simple sentences to enhance the readability of your blog.

Write What You Mean: It is important to avoid trite languages like clichés, homilies, or platitudes. Bring your ideas into impressive words by giving them the spotlight. Make sure that you don’t overload sentences.

Be Task-Oriented: It is advisable to set goals for yourself and focus on them. Don’t worry about the time it takes. What matters is your result. It is hard sometimes, but it becomes a prolific habit. For example, if you’re starting a blog about a tutoring center that is slow to generate interest, don’t give up after a few months. Keep considering great style tips.

Do Make Mistakes: Make mistakes. Write things that don’t make sense. It’s no secret that everyone learns from mistakes. How will you improve yourself if you don’t make mistakes?

Are you ready to write better for your blog? You will! Just keep writing. You will ultimately find that you have become a better writer by writing blog posts regularly.

    I think “write what you mean” is very important. Sometimes people forget that people all over The world might be reading their blog and they might not understand expressions you are using.

      Absolutely, and that’s exactly why it’s important to write in clear and concise statements so you don’t confuse your readers. Thanks for the comment!

    this is exactly one of the reasons i blog – to practice my writing skills. part of me doesn’t even care if the bog becomes “successful” – my blogging is successful just in the fact it has helped me develop my writing skills (and other skills, too)!

    Hi Janice,
    Great tips you shared here for all writers!
    Though many do follow most of it but still
    some breaks some! 🙂

    For such people like me, this is indeed a
    good alert!

    But hey, consistency is good in everything
    I fully agree to that.

    I want to add a small tip along with it.

    That is to say:
    “A good writer must be a good reader too!
    He must set apart some time for reading!

    Yes, let me put it this way:

    “Read more and write more”

    Yes, let me repeat. Read! Read and Read!
    and then write write write and write! 🙂

    Thanks Janice for this wonderful share.
    I am bookmarking for my further read.

    Keep sharing.

    Best Regards

    ~ Phil

      Hi Philip,
      Thanks for commenting on my guest author’s article. I read when I can. I always have so many papers to record and grade it’s seriously hard to find the time to read books. I read blog posts as often as I can, though. Do you mean read books or read anything?

    Hi Janice,

    These are definitely some great tips for people who want to improve their writing skills. Most people who start a blog, are NOT the best writers.

    I know that I am not. However, that doesn’t stop me. I now make it a point to write at least 1,000 words each and everyday.

    Since doing this I have become a better writing. (at least in my eyes) I can definitely tell you that I am able to spend less time writing my blog posts, unless I am creating a tutorial.

    Just like anything else in life that you want to master. It just takes consistent practice and never giving up till you reach your goals.

    Thanks for sharing these tips with us, have a great day 🙂

      Hi Susan,
      Great to see you. Thanks for commenting on my guest author’s article.
      In response to what you wrote: I agree everything goes quicker the more often we do it. I blog faster now than when I started, but my posts are longer now as well. Maybe then, it takes the same time, LOL. However, I can get more done in the same amount of time.

      Hi Ramit,
      I am so glad you enjoyed my guest author’s writing tips article. Thanks for writing to tell me.
      I agree with what you wrote: we write because we want to be read, at least online. My opinion is that is what separates a blog from a diary.

    Great post! There is a trial and error method of learning in blogging that is great… and it is also nice when the error portion can be cut short by the tips of others who have already learned such lessons! Blogging is a wonderful tool for developing writing and style. Thank you for the tips you share. 🙂

    Hello Janice! It’s pretty nice to be here. 🙂

    I love your tips on becoming a great writer via blogging. Like you, I do believe you can become a really fantastic writer if you give yourself time and are consistent in writing blogs.

    I remember I wasn’t much of a writer when I stated out years ago…in fact, English isn’t my first language..I had to learn it since most of my audience are English speakers. I have to be able to give them what they want.

    Today, I write for my blogs and other people’s blogs and that’s owing to my consistency of writing for the web. It has sure paid off well for me. And I do believe the points you shared here are a good starting point for folks who hopes to become a fantastic writer.

    Thanks for sharing this much resource my friend! 🙂

      Hi Anil,
      Thank you for commenting on my post. I am excited to see you here!
      You mentioned writing for other people’s blogs. Guest posting is one area where I have not spent a lot of energies. When I have, the results have been mixed. If people pay me to write for their blogs, then I definitely do, but I need to put my energies toward paid writing. Thanks for your comments.
      Janice
