As someone who NEVER had proper English education (I learned my English from conversations on fishing boats while crabbing in Alaska and through reading) I fail to understand how someone who used the language all his life and completed at least a few classes of formal education can say that he or she is unable to write!
Perhaps these tips will help you if you find yourself in this predicament…
Beauty of the blogs is their informal nature that allows you to share your passion, your ideas, your knowledge in informal manner. It allows us to open communication channels not previously accessible and not bound by distance, race, nationality or previous education.
Each And Every One Of Us Is An Expert!
It is simply finding your expertise and than willing to share it is what makes your blog either popular or not. That and a few small tips. Yes, writing for the web has its own rules! But you already have gone so far…
- You have determined your passion or expertise
- You have made conscious decision to share it
- You have established a blog
- You are willing to work on it!
Points above already qualify you to write. Even if you are not Jack London (one of my favorite writers) you have the ability to share what you have to say in blog format.
You Will Find Your Audience!
People who read blogs, do so not only because they liked the info but because they liked the style your information was presented in. Even if it is presented in most abusive format like we have seen done by a few bloggers, as long as it strikes the chord with audience – you will get following!
It does help when you content has certain flow to it and at least some form of attempt to correct the spelling and grammar. I can’t teach you those as I, myself heavily rely on Spell Check and common sense, which doesn’t always brings the expected results 😆
