Blogging, Content Writing and You

writing 2This blog article is all about writing content for your blog, website or newsletters. I thought I would put together a few rules I work by for your use. Enjoy!

 

Prove Yourself With Proofing

Reread your article at least two times. You can sort out some stupid mistakes in first look. Second read ensures removal of any big mistake. If possible read out loud and proud. You can easily remove lots of mistakes from your post. When you read it second time you will be reading it from a reader’s perspective and this will help you a lot in sentence construction.

Don’t Just Click “Publish”

Don’t just hit the publish button while completing your post. Keep the post as a draft and try to edit it later when you can come back to it. This technique is helpful at helping you find general mistakes.

All You Need Is Friends

If you are working in a team, then ask others to edit your posts. It will help keep your posts error free. If you are working alone then you can ask your friends or family members to proofread your post. You can also hire someone to edit your posts and this will help a lot in long run.

Tense About Tenses

Many writers make this mistake by changing tense in between the post. They write in simple present tense and immediately switch to past tense or future tense. It is sometimes grammatically correct but it is sufficient to confuse readers.  Try to avoid changing tense and, when you have to, try to keep things clean by writing in simple language.

Straight To The Point

You are writing for those browsing your blog. You need to be simple and illustrative so that anyone could understand your voice. Don’t use advance words which make reader to use dictionary to understand the meaning of words. Keep your posts as simple as possible.
