Hey, guys! Today, I’m back with another Blogging Tips with Rawan!
It’s been a while since I last written one of these, so I decided to update you with a new one!
This one is going to be giving you a couple tips on how you can improve your writing quality, which is a big part of blogging as you can see.
I’ve written 3 of these in the past, and I recommend you go and read those after you finish this one, because they may help you in the long run.
I wrote one on changing your blogging direction, one on taking a break from blogging, and my most recent one on having a posting schedule. I think that new and experienced bloggers will benefit from these.
1. Proofread, proofread, proofread
This one is a really important one that most new bloggers skip over.
Look, I understand that most of us aren’t full-time blogger and have school or a job to go to, so we don’t really have a lot of time to reread our whole post again and edit it, and that’s why proofreading sites exist.
I used to never proofread my posts, so there would be many grammar and spelling mistakes scattered around in there, and you can actually go back to my older posts to see what I’m talking about.
But a couple months ago, I found a site called Grammarly which works beautifully! I use the plugin to edit all my posts and ever since then, I don’t have any embarrassing mistakes.
You can help me grow my blog by using my link –http://gram.ly/jjvZ– to get a free week of the premium version of Grammarly! Don’t miss out on the deal!
2. Write a little bit every day
You don’t have to post everything you write, you just need to work out you blogging muscles every day fro at least 30 minutes.
This is to get your creative juices flowing.
I don’t really recommend you do the write all your posts in one day technic which I see a lot of bloggers using. Because if you only write one day per month and let’s say write 8-13 posts in one day, I’m pretty sure you’re gonna get really tired and burnt out, which is not what we want.
3. Write down your ideas
I’ve been doing this for as long as I can remember because it makes it a lot easier for me when I want to sit down and write to just have a list of ideas I can use and get straight into writing instead of wasting time trying to figure out what to post about.
I also recommend you keep a separate place to keep your ideas in because I’ve written on scraps of paper, lost them, and then cursed at myself for losing such good ideas that I forgot about already.
4. Read other blogs
This is one of those DUH blogging tips that most people overlook. To improve your writing, you need to read other’s posts and writing.
If you have a couple bloggers’ writing that you particularly like reading, then don’t be afraid to try and take some of the components that you enjoy and add them to your writing.
There is, of course, a line that you can’t cross, and that’s plagiarism. You don’t want to copy anyone’s blog or writing style. Your blog is you, and you don’t want to be a mediocre copy of someone else.
5. Find a writing partner
This one is a particularly helpful one, that not a lot of people use.
If you have a friend that you can send or show to, then that’s amazing! It’s like having your little personal editor that you can trust with personal information.
And if this friend also has a blog, then you can totally exchange posts and help each other out.
I feel like this particular tip is overlooked by a lot of people because they think it’s going to take a long time to send, read and resend the posts back and forth, but if you get the hang of it, you’ll totally see the benefit.
Much love, Rawan …
