Over the years, we have seen a tremendous increase in the number of people who have shifted their interest in becoming a blogger. The blogging industry has become the most preferred choice as their career option.
Apart from the people who hold the passion for writing, there are many people who are not so passionate about the writing. They just get attracted to the benefits and ease this industry offers and start writing without acquiring any specific knowledge and idea about how things are done.
Before you start your career as a writer and try your hands in it, you must fully aware yourself with the rules and guidelines that come along. Also, if you start your blog without being sure about what the people want and what are your specialties in writing you will soon end up with making many mistakes in your writing and will lose the interest in writing at the end.
There will certainly be the case when you write and initially, you will get some likes but when you start writing on the regular intervals you will fall short of creative ideas and will not be sure of the grammar and proofreading issues.
Lack of accurate knowledge about the basic of writing will somehow also reflect in your writing style making it appear less professional. Readers will have less engagement on a less professional blog. And this is definitely something that you will not want.
Make Your Blog Like Professional Bloggers
But since you are trying to make your writing better and want to start your career in this field we are here to help you in making your writing style appear professional. There are some simple ways which you can try to modify your blogs and writing with a better professional approach.
1. Check grammar
The very first thing that you should check to give your blog a professional touch is by checking its grammar. Many times an article and blog look nice when we read it but when we actually check it for its grammar point then there appears a lot of issues. These issues may be avoided once or twice but having such grammatical mistakes every time will not be accepted by the readers and they will end up switching to some other blogger.
Bring sure of the grammar of the blog is not such a big thing. There are many software and tools available that can help you in making the blog correct in terms of grammar. “Grammarly” is one such tool that can assist you in correcting the grammar issues. Other than taking help from these tools you must also develop your skills of making the right grammar in the sentences.
Must correct following errors (done by most of the newbies) –
- Its vs It’s (both are different)
- They’re vs There (both are different)
- Missing semicolons or use comma in place of them.
- Making sentences long using commas.
- Capitalization (Don’t write english instead of English)
2. Be Consistent
Many of us confuse the term consistency with writing with the same approach or in the same style. Bit consistency defines your excellence in keeping the readers engaged by presenting your content with the same excellence in information, style, and presentation.
You need not to repeat the same style again and again. You can try your hands on different styles of writing but make sure they don’t compromise on the quality of the blogs. Make sure to use the same guidelines and follow the defined rules to make the blog like professional.
Example if you are going to use English US then Never blend it with English UK. Both may have different spellings for the same word. A most common example is Color (English US) and Colour (English UK). You can check the Chamber’s Dictionary to know more words.
I always recommend to keep patterns of writing and keep using images of same size or quality.
If writing for the second person then the article should target only second person. Don’t bring the third person in the same sentence. Eg. Readers (third person) can follow this article to blog like professional and you (second person) shall keep readers engaged. You should talk about readers or second person.
Try to make an article in past tense or present tense. Don’t use both tenses in the same sentence.
3. Follow the guidelines
Following the defined guidelines and rules makes anything perfect. Same is the case with blogging. There are some fixed defined set of rules and guidelines for writing blogs which you must follow in order to give your blog a professional touch.
Following the guidelines will not only help you make the blog like professional but will also make it readable and will give a high engagement on that.
This is the point which we all lack to do. We often fail to proofread the articles that we write assuming that they are written well. It’s very important for professional blogging. And this is what we do wrong. Proofreading an article before submitting it will help you find out the possible errors. This will also help you to generate a reading habit in you which will again help in reading relevant content and in improving the writing part as well.
Improving and making your blogs worth reading by enhancing the quality of it has now become a necessity to sustain in the prevailing competition. These tips may not make you an excellent writer in a day but will certainly help you to get hold over the process and transforming your blogs in a better quality.
