How to be good and discipline in writing blogs.
The Good Attitude
What makes writing article or blogging so interesting? By the nature of writing, people imprint ideologies, emotions and intelligences from their mind into a medium that can be visible to others. Telling from my experiences as a former high school teacher, writing essays was the least favorite subjects by my students. When asked, most of students would say, they feels lazy to think of a topic to write, hard to initiate an introduction and admit they are not good in writing even before they to try it. So the question is, how to be good and discipline in writing blogs?
Attitude is essential in improving writing skills. Of course there are elements such as passion, interest, creativity and all that cliche. Eventually those elements will all have their part to play in developing writing skills in blogs or articles. For me, if you want to be a good writer and a good blogger, you need to first become a good reader. This is the most fundamental factor that will build a person's foundation in writing. Try to read as many articles as possible from many different high rank websites. Hubpages would be a great start. There are so many great, narrowed and specific topics in hubpages. Bare in mind, it is best to read articles from a well written informative source because if your not blog-walking properly, you might end up in a sales page and that will not do you any good. Everything in the internet is free of charge. In becoming good in writing blogs, it is best to invest a big portion of your time, not spending your money. Squidoo and ezine article is another great platform to start reading and writing. Make a habit of reading your own hubs, essays and posts. Most newbie bloggers would tend to skip this part. I guess because they are afraid to stumble into their own errors or grammars but these are the things that newbie writers need to work on. Repairing unwanted errors and rewriting posts will likely get more hits and credibility.
The Discipline Attitude
The second part in writing would be discipline. Creating a positive habit and stuck by it will make any newbie writer to be discipline in their writings and postings. Like what Joe Montana quote, " Repetition is king." Treat writing as your business. Treat the action to write and publish blogs as if it is your business especially if your looking to make money on the internet. Set a minimum number of posts that you need to publish daily and stick to it. After some time, learn new skills such media content, keyword search, search engine optimization and so many more. Diversify or focus on narrowed niche, that is your choice. Do not give up as writing blogs is a long term investment.
