Do you want to improve your writing?
Want to enhance your blog?
Average content is not enough any more, it has to be unique, exceptionally high quality, and excellently written.
With everyone creating content, how can you improve your writing so you stand out?
Within this blog post you will discover 3 simple but highly effective tactics to elevate your writing.
Let Research Be Your Backbone
Researching a subject vastly improves your writing.
Once you completely understand a topic, it becomes easy to write about.
You know your subject, you know how to tell your audience, and your know what words you need to describe it.
Not only will research help improve your writing, it makes your content deliver a knock out punch. You will gain more authority and own the space.
For example, if I was to write a blog post about SEO, my writing will be a higher standard if I researched a recent article by Google and other creditable sources. I can link to the post, and my content and authority will increase.
Not only will this improve your writing, you will learn more about the subject, a win-win situation.
Before you place pen to paper, do your research.
Use An Active Voice
If we refer back to the great Ernest Hemingway, he was a big advocator of the active voice, which made his writing the best of it’s kind.
An active voice inspires and brings people to action, in contrast to a passive voice. For example;
The boy was bitten by the dog.
The dog bit the boy.
See the difference between the two?
To understand whether you are writing in a passive or active tone of voice, investigate the structure of the sentence and see is the subject is doing the action or being acted upon.
An active voice makes your writing powerful, and increases your authority.
You have most probably heard this before, but practise really does make perfect.
One way you can do this is by keeping a journal or dairy.
Writing every week has developed my writing skills considerably. It is with practise and commitment that you can improve your writing.
I would encourage anyone to also keep a blog, so you can build an authority and practise your writing, blogging and marketing skills.
As you start to write everyday, your writing will improve beyond recognition.
