Introduction • Developing your blog-writing skills is a slow process. Work on your technique continuously and your work will attract readers. • Take in readers critiques for they know best how well you are passing on your thoughts. Neglecting the editing aspect of blog-writing will deter your readers from your blog. • Here are the reasons why writers need to edit and how to edit your blog articles.
Why writers need to edit • Inspirational chaos: Say you came across an amazing idea for a blog article that you know and feel will bring in traffic from the web. Then you start typing away with no end in sight. • Diverse ideas: Writers tend to get lost in their sentences or words and don't take the time to double-check if their sentences would make sense to a reader.
Why writers need to edit • Grammar and all that other stuff: Editing as you write never works out! Take your time to edit your blog article after you have finished. • Oh, you speak English, too?: Even if you consider yourself an English-native speaker - edit your articles. Just because you were born into the English language and learned about it all your life doesn't mean you won't make any errors.
7 simple tips to when editing your work • Take a breather after writing. The first mistake writers make is editing their post right when it's done. Writer's thoughts are fresh in their heads and when re-reading their article they might not pick up on the errors right away. • Divide and Conquer. Divide your editing into three processes: • content editing, • structure editing, and • grammar editing.
7 simple tips to when editing your work • Edit content. Review your article keeping an eye out for sections that don't make sense. Look for unfinished paragraphs and fragments. After identifying them, work towards fixing the errors • Edit structure. Write your articles in a way that the reader will be able to follow your content. Structure your content using bullets or bold headers. • Edit grammar. Lastly, edit grammatical errors. This shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes for a 800-900 word
7 simple tips to when editing your work • Less is more: When it comes to words - less really is more. Don't use complicated jargon unless your blog's audience understands the lingo. Readers know when you have used the same words and are saying the same thing again. • Don't trust Spell-check. Trust your spell-check software lightly.
