If you have started your own blog, it shows you are passionate about writing. But only starting a blog is not enough. You have to be serious about writing and keeping your passion alive.
Here are 5 things only serious writers do:
- Read good content
The most important aspect of keeping the creative side alive is by gorging on fresh content every day. Only when you read more, do you have access to new ideas, writing trends and build your vocabulary.
- Write regularly
Serious writers write regularly and consistently. Every creativity and talent demands practice. If you do not follow a disciplined writing schedule, your writing habits will start weaning off, not to mention your blog will start losing out on SERP rankings and traffic.
- Be open to criticism
When readers point out a loophole in your writing, you should be receptive enough to accept your flaw. Stubbornness narrows down scope of improvement, and affects your popularity among your masses which is a bad thing to happen to any writer, blogger and author alike. Accepting flaws will only help better your future write-ups.
- Have deadlines
The importance of deadlines in any field cannot be emphasized enough. Even for a writer it is important to establish certain deadlines for oneself. It not only helps to get the work done in time, but also maintains a uniform tone throughout an article. The tone tends to get disturbed if you write on the same topic intermittently.
- Revise your work
Revising older articles can help you in several ways.
- It can help make improvements in previous posts.
- Updating previous posts can result in better SERP ranking.
- You can spot some unique aspects in your early writing which made them popular and is missing in your current write-ups. Then incorporate same in your current projects.
