Top three Professional Writing Blogging Tips!
1) NAME YOUR BLOG SOMETHING CATCHY AND MEMORABLE
In any other periodical, newspaper, etc., the name is fixed. A blog can be named what you want. Really think up a catchy name because those are the blogs that stand out, make people laugh, raise eyebrows, get people interested to read what you have to say.
2) DON’T BURY THE LEAD
No one will read your blog or article if you don’t have a great lead sentence. which they teach in Journalism school. You have to give enough exciting detail in the first sentence to entice the reader to continue reading the whole article.
3) DON’T OVERBLOG
If you have something meaningful, funny, eventful, or planned out to write, write it and do write and blog on a regular basis. I recently stopped following one blogger who was simply copying and pasting other people’s blogs and ideas and literally blogging 20-30 times a day. I would rather read one well thought out, daily blog than regurgitated, plagiarized articles. This is a huge no no in professional writing. Write what you think and give credit where credit is due.
4) EXTRA CREDIT tip: SPELL CHECK!!!
