Tips On Writing Blog Content

When writing articles I find the best options is just fully work on your blog when done save first. Don't publish straight away as what I do and done even more recently is work on the words you use for your content. Like try not to use to many passive voices such as :

  • Be
  • is
  • are
  • Was
  • were
  • has been
  • have been
  • will be
  • being
You can utilize them however attempt keep them low. I discovered attempting to keep them as low utilization as truly helped my site and dependably check editing before publishing. On the chance that you are using wordpress there are a couple plugins which can help you focus more on these expects this.

Over the years, as a writer, I have learned that the more distance you can get from a piece you have written the better. You need to establish an objectivity towards your work so that you can actually edit it and see it outside of yourself. Most of us don't have professional editors working on our material, so one of the only ways to edit your work is to get a distance from it. If you can afford to, write your pieces at least a day before you post them. Then read them. You will be surprised at the edits ad things that you find.

Writing a day before we post them can be a great way to go about it. One good thing about that is one can get to see mistakes that would have been impossible if posted immediately.

Barida,
That is exactly what I mean. I know though, however, that we do not always have the time to do this sort of editing procedure. However, I would wager that, if we all had a day (or even an hour) away from our compositions that we would really become great editors of our own work and put out more and more pristine content. I see so many errors and typos in my work all of the time because I am working on limited time, and it really frustrates and embarrasses me.

Hmm interesting. I know it's good to write in the 3rd person perspective when writing blog posts as that gives your posts a much more neutral stance you know? And I also like to incorporate power words into my articles as well. But I never usually hit that publish button straight away. I'll sometimes sleep on a post and return to it the next day, have a read through it again and often I find things I've missed out that I can include within it or changes and things before I finally hit that publish button!

Never really thought about leaving it over night might try that see if my results are much better. I do like to try other new ways to see different results I get.

It's good that you know how good it is to leave your work till the next day when making articles. One good thing is that you can get to edit them better.

I never, ever hit the publish button right away. That's the worst thing you can do because you can often miss some very obvious mistakes - I leave every blog post for at least a few hours so I can think about it. Did I write everything? Do I want to change something? Sometimes I even found better ways to write some paragraphs.

I agree with Joe that distancing yourself from your own work for at least some time, is great because it gives you a reflection period that can improve your overall quality.

Very useful information. Thank you for sharing your ideas and posting it online, it's a big help for me as a writer. Because before you post your article online make sure that is grammatically and spell correctly. It's not easy to write an article and blogs online, make sure that content is on point and significant to the current issue.

I have to say that it's good I've learnt a lot by reading your post above. I always take out time to read my article and sometimes ask a pal to read before I post on the internet in order to reduce certain errors that could be on it.

I agree that when you are done with the draft, save it at once before doing the review. And it is better if you rest for sometime before you read what you had written. With a fresh mind, you tend to get better with the editing and revisions. Sometimes you even change some words. My blog contents usually undergo at least 3 times of review and changes but there are times that it takes me 10 times with that chore to improve my blog.

Just post a blog what your heart wants and don't push those things that you think that it doesn't work. And always be think positive in every time you make a blog so that you will have good feedback from other people on what blog you make.

As someone has commented because of client deadlines, this is not always possible. I agree that you can't edit your own work. When I go through my work even weeks latter, I find typos or different ways of writing the same words.That's why it's difficult to work on online platforms, that give you 2 hours to write a 500 word article. It's a real rush. It's probably best to write only in a niche that you know well.

I always review my articles before publishing them. My aim is to deliver high-quality content to the visitors to my blog. This is what actually helped me to grow my blog. Some of my articles were highly appreciated by the visitors and I received very positive comments on them. I try to make sure that my article is of reasonable length. Reviewing is important as it helps you to perfect your articles for your readers.

You are right with the review of the article before publishing. Sometimes it even takes a review of many times before you pronounce your article final. And the best is to let another person review your article because you can get a neutral opinion particularly regarding the substance of the article. If it is interesting or not, the neutral reader can determine it and not you.

I find reading my content again and again helpful in correcting mistakes. It also helps me to sometimes find a better word to say things. When I do my writing, the first draft is what comes out of my head about the topic. I just let my mind flow whatever it has to say. When done, I read it all over again and this is where I do my correction and rewording. After that, I read it once more to finalize any changes I need to make.

That's true before you publish any kind of content one should edit and re-edit it first and one way of doing it is to read it over and over again and by using online correction tools.

There are timestimes i feel a baby really. There are many things to learn. What is written in your post are some of them.

I can't say that I ever paid attention to my active versus passive voices. What I have learned to do is revisit my content, no matter how old, and edit it or even rewrite it, if need be. The links have already been indexed by Google so I don't want to lose that advantage. But Google has not indexed the entire blog post. That means I can change the content and make it better.

While writing a weblog content, you need to make sure that the content is readable, shareable, and seo friendly on the same time. The quality thing about WordPress is that it helps you to do all such things along with your content. All you need to have is a few precise plugins which includes for editing, proofreading, and search engine optimization. you could run those tests free of value on your WordPress weblog.

Passive voice has always been my problem. I have a hard time writing an article without a passive voice. I keep practicing avoiding ot though and I hope I'll master writing article w/o using passive voice.

I've taken the liberty of saving your post. It's a good list of words that I should be aware of when writing my content. Sometimes I would use a passive voice in my writing more so when I'm in a hurry and having your list pinned on my wall would help me remember what words to look for when editing.

I will end up not publishing a post if I leave it overnight. I will find out it is not good enough. When I try to edit it is when I incorporate more errors. I find I have deviated from the original idea.

What do I do? I hit the publish key straight away and leave all errors to my readers. Not all writings are perfect.

I have been avoiding passive voice in all articles. The use of passive voice makes the article sound like something you heard. It is good to use the active voice, in order to engage with the readers.

However, if you have already published the articles, you can go back and edit them using tools such as Hemmingway editor and Grammarly.
