Writing for our blogs is an outlet for us and many of us are with no formal skills in writing or degrees in creative writing, journalism or English Honors neither have we done a crash course in blogging! Yes there are plenty of blogging coaches out there who will groom you for money – just Google it and see.
Writing for many of us ‘bloggers’ is about relaxation, unwinding and putting our thoughts across. It is a deeply personal and judgmental work. Your blog is not just a bunch of pages and words but a representation of you. Who you are, what you want to say, what moves you, motivates you and gets your knickers in a twist! Yes, our blog showcases our good, bad & ugly many times without us even realizing it.
Have you not heard and read this a million times? Not all of us have the intent, time and resources to take our blog to the next level , monetize it, have a flock of passionate followers & steady commenter’s but that should not stop us from doing the right thing by our blog.
Feel – Always deeply feel about what you want to express.
Think– Always offer a lot of thought to what you want to say and why you want to say it.
Hope – whatever you say, do it with the hope and positive thought for a better future.
Passion – be passionate, bothered and concerned about your words and the impact they create.
Skill – utilize the best of your skills
So where does the W of Writing come here? Yes, all of you is reflected not by the buttons, icons, style or templates you use but by the words you use. Herein lies our ‘W’ All that style and jazz will be useless if your words don’t have conviction, honesty and emotion.
How important those words are can be emphasized by this acronym WRITE stands for…………………..
WONDER – about all things, looking at the same old with new eyes,
REASON – with thoughts and ideas, search and question all views,
INITIATE – action about things that matter; be proactive,
TREASURE – all your thoughts, all things about you and the blog,
EMOTION – is the most powerful part of you, channelize it and always be passionate.
Writing is not just putting across the fact but it is telling the audience how you feel about what you are writing.
I leave you with these words by Maya Angelou , “Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.”
