How To Improve Your Blogging Skills
Do you want to improve your blogging skills? Every blogger out there, regardless of niche, background or whatever is no doubt an expert at something or other. More than you’d like to admit if you’re a blogger yourself, you’ll probably be better at some things than you are at others.
That’s OK, it’s natural to focus your attention at the things you’re best at; it’s what helps you to become an authoritative blogger. But does being an expert at one thing make you a better blogger – if you’re asking for my opinion – no!
So what’s my point?
My point is that we can all spend too much time focusing on the things we’re already good at, and neglecting the things we’re not so good at, in effect that does not make us the best we can be at what we do as bloggers.
Here’s one of my examples; I’m currently obsessed with Twitter and I’m reading and tweeting, engaging and networking with people every day on Twitter, I know how to increase my followings and how to use the tools to reach new audiences and make sales etc… But my skills in other areas of my social media activities are somewhat lacking. After all, most people use social media to socialize and not to sell stuff. But for business it is getting kind of essential, so I’m learning more about it. And the more I learn about it, the better equipped I’ll be to write useful blog posts about social media marketing. Geddit?
How To Improve your Blogging Skills
The solution is simple. We can continue to focus on the areas we’re prolific at, but at the same time we should make time to focus more on the areas of our blogging that needs improving.
Here’s another example of mine; I’d like to think I’ve perfected my list building skills, because I work at it everyday none-stop, I’m always looking for new ways to increase my daily subscribers. But at the very same time, I feel that I could pay more attention on improving my PPC skills, an area that I haven’t given as much attention to as SEO lately.
You might feel the same about some things in your blogging that you’re good at and not so good at –
You might be an expert at writing super long blog posts without making your audience fall asleep, but at the same time your English writing skills might be atrocious. I’m just using an example here.
The one thing you shouldn’t be afraid of doing is admitting to yourself or others what you need to improve on – it’s the only way you’re going to become better at what you do and begin writing better blog posts that make you stand out from the rest of the crowd.
So I hope this little post has given you some food for thought, if you want to improve your blog, focus on the areas that need your attention more and less on the areas you’re already an expert at.
