As a communications student with a minor in writing, I’ve had many classes dedicated to the art of writing. You may think, why would anyone need classes on how to write? But trust me when I say this: writing is not easy. Everyone writes, but not everyone does it correctly.
Whether you’re a college student or a blogger (or both), you’re bound to find yourself writing. Actually, most jobs include at least a little bit of writing on the employee’s part. And, since that’s the case, wouldn’t you want to do it perfectly? This is why I’m sharing some of the wisdom my classes taught me to give you 5 ways you can improve your writing. Whether you’re a blogger or a college student, these tips can definitely help you be a better writer! (
This is coming from a girl who got straight A’s in most of her writing classes ;))
Blogging is a hobby that can take up a lot of your time. Not only do you need to write posts, but you also have to promote them in order to see results. It may not seem like a lot, but trust me, just that is plenty already. And it doesn’t end here! Bloggers tend to have a ton of social media accounts they use as promotion tools, and those need to be kept updated too. There is always something to be done or to be improved.
As a college blogger, I cannot dedicate all of my time to blogging, as I wish I could do. I also have a part-time job, so that takes up a lot of my time as well. So, in order to be able to make it, time management is key. Finding a balance between blogging, college, and work can be hard, but it’s totally doable!
Today, I’m sharing with you how I handle it all, and I hope that these tips will be able to help you too!
Recently, I’ve been tagged on Twitter to answer the following question: Why do you blog?
And while some might be able to answer this easily, I found it hard to answer. It got me to think: what has motivated me to start a blog? And, even better: what has motivated me to keep it? To be able to answer this correctly, I need to take you back to the beginning. This is why today, I’m getting a bit more personal and sharing with you why I blog and my blogging story.
I’ve been working harder and harder recently on creating a blogging routine that works for me. I had set it as one of my goals for the summer to not only find a blogging process that works for me but to also get on a regular posting schedule.
While I haven’t entirely been able to do the latter just yet (there are still weeks where I’m not posting according to my regular Tuesday-Friday schedule), I have definitely been able to find a blogging routine! So I thought I would share a little bit of what’s happening behind the scenes and share my blogging process! View Post
Blogging is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I mean, not only did it help me get more organized, but it also allows me to be more creative and improve my writing. But the most amazing part it is that I made friends with people from all over the world.
It’s no secret that I’m a very shy person. I don’t make friends easily and it’s hard for me to come out of my comfort zone.
Blogging could be a very lonely activity. I mean, you’re sitting behind your computer, writing posts. But it’s so much more than that. Despite what people might think, blogging is actually all about networking. You have to get yourself (and your blog) out there if you want to get your blog seen and read. It can be very hard at first, but for me, networking is one of the best parts of blogging! Not only because it increases my traffic, but also because I get to meet new people all the time and develop new friendships.
It took me a while to figure how crucial networking is. It can be a bit overwhelming sometimes, which is why today I’m giving you my advice on how to network with other bloggers! View Post
