Introduction
  • Developing your blog-writing skills is a slow
    process. Work on your technique continuously and
    your work will attract readers.
  • Take in readers critiques for they know best how
    well you are passing on your thoughts. Neglecting
    the editing aspect of blog-writing will deter
    your readers from your blog.
  • Here are the reasons why writers need to edit and
    how to edit your blog articles.

Why writers need to edit
  • Inspirational chaos Say you came across an
    amazing idea for a blog article that you know and
    feel will bring in traffic from the web. Then you
    start typing away with no end in sight.
  • Diverse ideas Writers tend to get lost in their
    sentences or words and don't take the time to
    double-check if their sentences would make sense
    to a reader.

5
Why writers need to edit
  • Grammar and all that other stuff Editing as you
    write never works out! Take your time to edit
    your blog article after you have finished.
  • Oh, you speak English, too? Even if you consider
    yourself an English-native speaker - edit your
    articles. Just because you were born into the
    English language and learned about it all your
    life doesn't mean you won't make any errors.

7 simple tips to when editing your work
  • Take a breather after writing. The first mistake
    writers make is editing their post right when
    it's done. Writer's thoughts are fresh in their
    heads and when re-reading their article they
    might not pick up on the errors right away.
  • Divide and Conquer. Divide your editing into
    three processes 
  • content editing,
  • structure editing, and
  • grammar editing.

7 simple tips to when editing your work
  • Edit content. Review your article keeping an eye
    out for sections that don't make sense. Look for
    unfinished paragraphs and fragments. After
    identifying them, work towards fixing the errors
  • Edit structure. Write your articles in a way that
    the reader will be able to follow your content.
    Structure your content using bullets or bold
    headers.
  • Edit grammar. Lastly, edit grammatical errors.
    This shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes for a
    800-900 word

7 simple tips to when editing your work
  • Less is more When it comes to words - less
    really is more. Don't use complicated jargon
    unless your blog's audience understands the
    lingo. Readers know when you have used the same
    words and are saying the same thing again.
  • Don't trust Spell-check. Trust your spell-check
    software lightly.

  • Don't trust Spell-check. Trust your spell-check
    software lightly. These tools don't "understand"
    your writing and don't grasp variations of
    sentences or word usage.

7 simple tips to when editing your work
  • Read at random Choose a random paragraph from
    your article and edit it. Then choose another
    random paragraph and edit that one.
  • Don't overdo it. What's harder than actually
    starting the editing process? Knowing when you've
    had enough.
  • Learn from your mistakes. After following the
    steps above, you will be closer to a perfectly
    written masterpiece.
