Poor writing skills = Take a gun – shoot yourself in the head
Once imagine this yourself before diving into the post…
You’ve written a GREAT blog post which took almost 10 days to finish.
One fine morning, you’ve decided to publish it.
What if no one reads, comment or share your great blog post even after 3 days you hit the publish button?
Very disappointing.. right?
Probably the reasons could be;
- Your great post doesn’t add any value to your readers
- Just another post
- Poor writing skills etc
I strongly believe that if you’ve convincing writing skills, you can CONVEY anything that you write. Even if it’s a just another post!
Are you getting me?
Online readers hate to read the blogs with poor writing skills.
Is this true or just a myth?
I don’t think it’s a myth. There must be a reason for anyone to read your blog. If your articles have lots of grammatical mistakes, no one would be interested in reading further, do you?
Make sure you’re writing something worth reading.
Your words should sell.
Your readers should feel encouraged to write something NEW on their blogs after reading your blog posts. Do you’ve that commitment?
Online readers love to read professional advice.
I didn’t mean that you need to have master’s degree in English literature to write a great copy – but you should at least be bothering about creating a compelling copy to attract your visitors.
If your copy is good, it will attract more people to read your blog, simple as that.
If you can’t create unique content – strive to have a unique writing style.
You actually DON’T NEED to create unique content, if you’ve a unique writing style.
Let me explain this point..
There’s tons of content being published each and every day on blogosphere, agree?
Then how come YOU can create something unique??
Is it REALLY possible to create unique content?
My answer is NO..
You can’t create unique content, you can only write something in a unique way and that’s how unique content can be created.
So work your butt off to hone your writing skills. Your WRITING matters A LOT.
Here are 3 tips to hone your writing skills
Want to become a top class writer?
The more you read, the better you’ll learn HOW TO WRITE.
You can’t become a great writer, if you’re not a great reader.
So spend your time on reading online stuff. Read each and every word that you come across online, don’t just skim through. Within few weeks, you’ll notice the difference.
The problem with most online readers is this: they always SKIM.
So.. there’s no way they can become great writers. So try to read more than you write if you’re just starting out – this helps you A LOT to hone your writing skills.
If you want to become a great soccer player, play more soccer.
If you want to become a painter, draw more.
Likewise, if you want to become a great writer, write more.
Spend quality time on writing something. Be it anything, about your niche, love, crush, or recently watched movies, it could be anything. Just focus on writing more. This is the only way to write more better.
Proof read twice.
Most bloggers do this wrong. They don’t spend time on proof reading their writing.
If you don’t care your own writing, why would anyone care?
So.. focus on reading what you write at least twice.
This is really a good habit to write flawless contents.
So.. how is your writing? Do you care to hone your writing skills?
