Writing Tips for Bloggers

by Jenny on December 14, 2010

Before you start blogging, spend some time visiting other blogs that are like the one you’re thinking of starting. Read one or two for a few weeks and pay attention to things like the length of posts, frequency, writing style, and subject material. You can get some great ideas for your own blog by noting what you find interesting and compelling in other people’s blogs.

Always consider your audience. If you’re writing for only close friends and family, you don’t need to explain a lot of things. If your blog attracts a wide audience, you may want to create references to help new readers follow any continuing story. Do remember that a blog is like a conversation. Try to write the way you speak. Avoid jargon and clichés and don’t overuse the thesaurus.

It may be helpful to read it aloud after you’ve written it. If you find yourself struggling as you read it aloud, think about what you might have said if you were talking to a friend. A trick that you can do is to write your blog post with a specific friend or family member in mind. Thinking of someone you know well and who might want to read your blog will help you have a relaxed writing style. Get your writing to sound more like you and less like a school essay.

A great site design and technical gimmicks are no replacement for content written in an interesting and easy-to-read style. Most of us don’t do much personal writing in our everyday lives or even keep a diary. Writing interesting content is not easy, and you may find yourself suffering from writer’s block or not being able to get your message through. If you own a business blog, you would greatly benefit from hiring a professional writer to do work for you. Find out more details about our writing services and ask for a free quote.
