Most people think that blog writing is easy due to some myths. Ever told someone that you are a blog writer? Can you recall their reaction? Exactly!
Well, not many people realize how much effort it takes to be an awesome blog writer. It is a process and you just don’t wake up one day and say,” I want to be a writer.” You have to give it enough thought to ensure that you won’t reach a point and get a mind-block. We are all human; our minds get tired at some point. If it happens often, don’t worry, all writers get tired at some point. However, that should not stop you.
Here are some tips that you can use to ensure you start and remain an awesome blog writer:
1) Familiarize yourself with all niches
In the context of familiarizing yourself with various niches, you need to do thorough research and see what works for you and what doesn’t. If you are more into the literature aspect, try poetry, creative stories, and short articles.
If you prefer technical stuff, try out stuff that you are familiar with like web-related stuff, energy production, electronics, drones, and so on. It should be something that you have knowledge of and not something you want to do because your role model does the same. Your thinking capacity may not be on the same level as your mentor.
After familiarizing yourself with the niches, identify the specific one you want to settle on.
By researching you get to see what works and what doesn’t. Read numerous articles on the same and see how other writers are phrasing their work. Whenever you want to write an article
- Outline questions that a reader might have on the same
- Do research on the topic
- Write the outlook of the article
- Make a draft with the points you have gotten
The internet has many articles that one can get any information from, but be wise in choosing content.
3) Subscribe to blogs
While researching, you will get content from various websites that will amaze you. Make sure, you subscribe to such blogs so as to get weekly or daily updates. Remember you can also credit them by sharing a backlink of the site to show that there is more useful content that readers can benefit from in the site.
4) Plagiarism- free articles
However, if you get any content from the site, do not plagiarize it. You should write an original piece to prevent google from penalizing your blog site. You should use proofreading and editing tools like Grammarly and smallseotools to verify your written work.
If you plagiarize work, it can drive away your readers as they will sense an aspect of unprofessional-ism.
After writing the article, make sure you proofread it to correct any grammatical errors, use synonyms of repeated words, and check plagiarism.
You can also ask a third part to read it and give you an opinion of how it is. They will be in a better position to note errors unlike you.
6) Have a blog or website
For this, you need to have a platform to showcase your work. WordPress has made it easy for people to start blogs without many requirements. However, it is essential to have a website that you can showcase your work and grow with it as you advance on.
If there are any open competitions in writing, you should participate and see where your expertise reaches. Join communities and forums that will help your mind grow and be more creative.
By following this, you can be one of the best blog writers in your niche. Familiarize research, write and proofread to ensure your writing is epic.
