Learning Every Thing In The Domain Of Language
1. Writing is a Habit, Not an Obligation
Writing may be innate for some people, but anyone can actually write well through lots of practice. During your free time, unsheathe your pen and pick up your journal or notebook. Go to a conducive venue then let your pen fly. Remember, you are writing because of the fact that you love to write, not out of pressure.
Once you get accustomed to writing all three types, you can finally move to blogging. Knowing how to do the three writing styles will give you more options for presenting information, which is a plus in the world of blogging. The blog puts your work out in the open, so make sure that you edit your entries right after posting them.
2. Read Read Read!
Reading novels and articles are not only interesting, they will also help you diversify your writing style. All authors have distinct writing styles, even if write the same genre. The reason for this is, every person has a unique thought process, which translates to a unique set of words used to express ideas, opinions and stories.
Reading exposes you to a plethora of wit and wordplay. You must combine it with your writing hobby, if you want to constantly improve as a blogger or writer. To make reading an effective tool, you can read first before writing. You can then apply some of the styles that you picked up when you start writing your entry.
3. Avoid Cliches
Cliches make blog posts corny and predictable. You should only use them to complete ideas and if there is a clear lack of words for the idea. Instead of using cliches, you can either come up with original statements or add wordplay to an overused statement. These statements are often used to end a paragraph or the entire entry.
4. Start and End with a Bang
Just like a full-course meal, you should provide an appetizing introduction and a luscious ending. Readers are often hooked by a striking initial paragraph. As for the endings, they are just as eye-catching the intros, so you will leave a good impression in each of your entries. Use pertinent questions, some wordplay and a dash of controversy to influence readers to bookmark your blog.
5. Writing Feedback
Improvement is fostered when you get feedback regarding your entries. Ask a writer or an editor to read your entries occasionally and to give you comments about your work. Don’t get disheartened by the negative comments. In fact, you should treasure them, since you will improve once you resolve the issues pointed out by your editor.
6. The More Conversational, the Better
Since blogs are made to collect readership, readers will want some interaction between them and the blogger. Posting comments is often encouraged, so the audience can air their “two cents” on the matter, but sometimes, that isn’t enough. If you make your entries conversational, readers will get the impression that you are reaching out to them. You will then gain their trust, which equates to more comments and page views.
7. Consistency then Variety
As a blog writer, you should first be consistent with the way you present information. That way, your readers will get accustomed to your writing style, which influences reader interaction. Your first several entries should bear a similar format. After writing about five entries, you can shift the way you present info or change writing styles in the next entry, giving your viewers much needed variety. You can then return to your original format to maintain the consistency. Repeat the process when necessary.
Conjunctions may play a small role in elementary and high school grammar classes, but they are some of the most important elements when writing entries. These idea connectors and expounders improve the flow of statements and make reading more interesting. If you do a little wordplay with them, the entry becomes fun to read. Refrain from overusing them, though, or else your entry will look forced. Here are a few examples of conjunctions:
Sample Sentence 1: The concert, which will be held at the amphitheater, will be packed this coming weekend.
9. Write Comments on Some of Your Posts
Seeing a blog post with zero comments does not look inviting for some people. They will have an impression that your entry was poorly done. What you can do is hype up your entry by posting your own comments. Mind you, the comments should be well-written and must have “twang” for them to influence readers to post their thoughts on your entry. So what’s blog writing got to do with writing comments? Anticipating the comments or writing them yourself can help you determine what to edit. It can also help you improve your ending paragraph, making it more comment-friendly.
10. Eliminate Writing Distractions
The secret with speed writing is, distractions are often shunned or minimized. When writing a blog entry, you must pick a location where you can totally concentrate. You should also refrain from tinkering with virtual distractions such as social networking sites (myspace, facebook, etc), online games, and other eye-catching applications. Remember, your writing flow should always be preserved, since it often produces good blog posts. Just make the distractions your reward after writing a blog entry.

11. Keywords and Key Ideas
Noting keywords and key ideas for your topic serves as your road map for writing a good blog post. Type them in “Notepad” or “Wordpad,” before making your entry. Read the key ideas carefully and arrange them in chronological order, if necessary. When everything’s set, write your entry. Look at your set of key ideas from time to time, so you’ll never lose track of your ideas and the topic.
