The Ultimate Blogger Writing Guide
There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of writing guides out there. This is why I always keep this book within reach.

I never had formal grammar lessons for English , so had keep on looking up the meaning of various terms used in the book — like split infinitives, prepositions, etc. Great article, often times people worry too much about how many times they should post articles, what time of day to post or what cool widgets to have when in fact the most important blogs elements start with what you say, how you say it and who you say it too.
I hope all industries begin to utilize, I mean, use these tips as a guide to effective communication. Some great helpful advice which I wish a lot of bloggers would keep in mind- especially in regards to using short paragraphs. Ironically the old stand by carries meaning for 21st century writers. As an English teacher for over 30 years I am convinced that the position will always be in high demand.
The challenge is to keep English the most interesting class at school… and to raise a generation of passionate bloggers. I have my EoS book right next to my Little, Brown book. A good article once again on Copyblogger and ditto on Strunk and White as a must for any writer to follow. I think of effective writing in terms of two elements: 1 write what you know, and 2 know your audience. Thanks for reminding me that classic writing tips continue to hold value.
Strunk and White. But I learned to stay concise as I have a tendency to ramble. Thanks for the reminder. Great tips. I only read it once, and that is hardly enough. A lot of these tips are similar to ones I learned, and sometimes forget, in journalism school 10 years ago. Be concise and organized are some of the most valuable writing tips a blogger, journalist or anyone who aspires to write well can have. Excellent advice. I discovered Elements of Style in College in the late 70s and it remains my go-to writing guide all these years later.
You have provided an excellent synopsis for blog writers. It only goes to show that the publishing outlets may change, but good writing never goes out of style. I love the use simple words.

Focus on writing the content and making it easy to digest for the reader. There is no need for super detailed outlines or flow charts. Just jot down some of the main points and go from there. Another great tips i found in here.
I have read several times of this kind of post but its slightly different among the other that i found. Great tips anyway and i just save those in my notepad. I love the seventh tips, be conversational. It will make the audience feel relaxed and familiar with the contents and the author. I realize my comment is waaay down here, but I wanted to comment anyhow. I am constantly analyzing my blog and I do ask some of these questions you mentioned. What I have seen mentioned is the use of simple words.
This seems to go against all we have learned about having a large vocabulary. However, I agree. I love the informal style of writing that a blog allows! Thanks for these tips, I will take them to heart! Dean — This is a great post with fantastic advice. What I enjoyed most is the way you demonstrate the principles that you teach in the post itself.
Ever blogger should invest a few minutes to read through this post and use it as a check list in your personal blogging practices. Using headlines is also important because people scann text with their eyes. They never read the entire text……very good post.
Skip to primary navigation Skip to content Skip to primary sidebar. Put the reader first. The purpose of writing is clear, sometimes persuasive, communication.
It is not about you or your clever ideas. If you write to impress, you will distract the reader from the content. Good writing is like a store window. It should be clean and clear, providing an unobstructed view of the contents within.
Organize your thoughts. But you do need to know what you want to say before you say it. Otherwise, simply jot down the important points you want to make and arrange them in the order you want to make them. Eliminate any ideas that are not directly related to these points.
Use short paragraphs. Look at any newspaper and notice how short the paragraphs are. In ordinary writing, each paragraph develops one idea and includes many sentences. But in blogging, the style is less formal and paragraphs may be as short as a single sentence or even a single word. Use short sentences. Each sentence should have one simple thought. More than that creates complexity and invites confusion. Use simple words.
Since your purpose is to communicate and not impress, simple words work better than big ones. Be specific. Say what you mean.

This page provides some excerpts from some of my favorite books and some online materials about how to improve writing and write well — write concisely and clearly. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences , for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that he make every word tell. Old version of the book can be found online: William Strunk, Jr.
There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of writing guides out there. This is why I always keep this book within reach.

Это два разных элемента. Люди на подиуме перешептывались. - Уран и плутоний! - воскликнул Джабба, и в его голосе впервые послышались нотки надежды. - Нам нужно установить разницу между этими элементами. - Он повернулся к бригаде своих помощников. - Кто знает, какая разница между этими элементами.
У вирусов есть линии размножения, приятель. Тут ничего такого. Сьюзан с трудом воспринимала происходящее. - Что же тогда случилось? - спросил Фонтейн. - Я думал, это вирус. Джабба глубоко вздохнул и понизил голос.
Разве нельзя дождаться звонка Дэвида о той копии, что была у Танкадо. Стратмор покачал головой. - Чем быстрее мы внесем изменение в программу, тем легче будет все остальное. У нас нет гарантий, что Дэвид найдет вторую копию. Если по какой-то случайности кольцо попадет не в те руки, я бы предпочел, чтобы мы уже внесли нужные изменения в алгоритм. Тогда, кто бы ни стал обладателем ключа, он скачает себе нашу версию алгоритма. - Стратмор помахал оружием и встал.
